The Snail Games partnership apparently came down to a similar development history and philosophy, with Black Desert having already been highly anticipated in China. Players who are currently playing on overseas servers or private servers will be courted to join the official servers once they launch, to boot. For fans currently playing on the western version of the game with more interest in developing the existing game, there are also plans to bring stage two Awakenings to the classes while adding more classes to the existing lineup, so players can look forward to that in the future.
Black Desert courtesy of Snail Games, but according a recent interview with developers Pearl Abyss the game will not have any specific content just for Chinese players. Adjustments may be made to costumes to deal with governmental censorship policies, and there’s the possibility of more costumes down the line, but nothing is yet being planned.
