An exact date hasn’t yet been decided upon, but localization should be finished by the first half of 2018, and Spanish-speaking GMs will also be hired to assist customers who require it. It’s good news for native speakers and bilingual speakers who feel more comfortable with Spanish on a whole; they’ll still have to wait a little bit longer, but it’s better than waiting for something that may never come.
Black Desert wasn’t localized in English and every attempt to play it involved jumping through a lot of hoops in a language you didn’t speak? That’s still the situation for the game’s would-be Spanish-speaking fans, who have to sit and watch forlornly as other people enjoy playing the game. But now a localized Spanish version of the game has been announced, which means that Spanish-speaking people can get together with their friends and have a big party. (Does anyone know the Spanish words for “friends” or “party?”)
