The first chunk of Black Desert’s free Kamasylvia expansion launches next week

Remember last week when Kakao hinted that Black Desert’s new servers were indication that Kamasylvia was on the way “real soon”? That soon is almost upon us, as Kakao has announced this morning that the massive PvE-centric expansion will launch next week on September 27th, or at least the first part of it. Oh yeah, and it’s free.

Black Desert Online’s new region, Kamasylvia, features elven woodlands that stretch out to the south of Hexe Sanctuary, from the Valtarra Mountains to the Shady Tree Forest. In terms of the landmass, the new region is about the size of Calpheon and houses an elven village known as the Old Wisdom Tree. There is no level requirement for Kamasylvia, but it is a dangerous place to go alone, so being at high level will be beneficial and group play is recommended. There is also new group-based content such as The Altar of Training that will enthuse players who are looking for some co-op action. The Altar of Training, located deep within Kamasylvia, contains a survival mode which players can unlock once they have completed certain quests in the main storyline. Players will need to work together with their party members to defend a sacred treasure from hordes of enemies that grow stronger with each wave. A total of five waves need to be beaten before the ultimate challenge: a fight with the powerful final boss, Ancient Puturum. If successful, adventurers can gain valuable items and gear.”

The official site’s free trial landing page has an updated interactive map with the new region clickable (it’s screenshots when you click through to it), and the new trailer? That’s down below!

I wonder if it’ll finally have an area worth grinding in so people can stop going to pirates and sausans finally.

I haven’t played BDO since maybe 2-3 months after launch, at 1:07 – someone please tell me the blue dogs are a playable race?

Also, now having played FFXIV I certainly can see the strong thematic connection there too.

This is going to be amazing.

I’ll say it again… If you’re an MMO player, for $5-10 that this is, it’s a must-have on your hard-drive, if for no other reason to travel the countryside, meet the locals, see the culture and take in the views.

I’d totally give it a shot… if it wasn’t region blocked in my country.

Really stoked this is finally here as it would give me more to play for rather than logging in for dailies at this point, but I think all my time for the next month or so will be dedicated to Absolver and GW2.

It’s an embarrassment of riches on the gaming front right now!
