Black Desert patches in new guild boss and campsite, teases costume contest

    
12
Black Desert’s biweekly patch has arrived, complete with new guild boss Muskan, a new campsite, and the Call of Moonlight Fragment challenge. As always, my favorite part is actually the most obscure patch note: “Fixed the issue where the camera shook violently when you were the rear passenger on a two-seater horse.”

Meanwhile, who wants to play dress up? Pretty much everyone, right, else you’d not be playing MMOs. Good news, then: BDO is kicking off a new costume contest next week; the western winner will apparently go toe-to-toe with the eastern winner in a showdown for Pearl Abyss, and the winning design will actually be added to the game. Based on the teaser art, we recommend copious underboobage. Underboobage is totally a word.

Finally, mobile fiends, watch out for Black Desert’s mobile spinoff; Inven reports that Android testing for the game will commence next week.

I recently gave bdo a second try and loving it so far! I am not into pvp or grind, i just love the virtual world and the rpg elements of the game!

I dont care about costumes. I like the ingamd items too.. my witch has a nice simple robe… dont care for costumes and if they are less or more revealing…

Believe it or not i am always fan of simple outfits for my chars instead of the super colored extreme looks! In most games my best gear is the starting gear of each class which is usually simple but econic..

I made a witch specifically in anticipation for the release of Deneve outfit, so that’s what mine wear now. The default witch outfit were kinda disappointing at first but after a week I started to kinda like it. Some of the craftable functional clothes are also really nice. Alchemist outfit for example is really nice. Sadly you need a cash shop ticket to wear it along with your armor, but it’s possible to get them from the market place with luck.

It’s worth mentioning that the game has its share of utterly ridiculous and impractical costumes for both the male and the female characters.

It also has completely normal costumes for both, including downright frumpy robes for the Witch, full plate armor for the Valkyrie, heavy half-plate for the Berzerker, etc.

Of course, most of the player base puts their female characters in the most revealing outfits they can find, complete with the breast sliders all turned up to 11…

I agree, Bree. Underboobage is totally a word! :D

I’m hoping the winner will give us a different choice than “barely there” and “oversexed” for female characters. I mean, sexy is cool! It’s just not cool when it’s blatant sexism. Yeah, yeah, I know. Video games, boys, sex sells, and all that.

Some of the past winners from KR may look familiar :)

Some are revealing like the Ranger Stella, but many are also covered such as the Valk Jousting or Tamer Night Cat as well. Males also got some semi revealing outfits like Blue Tiger as well.

I always felt the game portrays Females in a strong and positive manner personally.

Most of the outfits are really good. Some are just terrible designs no matter what though heh.

There are PLENTY of costumes that cover your character completely up. Actually a lot of choices and you can mix and match and still get the bonus of premium costumes as well. One of my faves is the earlier Ranger one.. Oh gosh what’s the name of it? Ranger Bern I think? That really made my character feel like a true Archer/Ranger type. I would like to see more outfits along those lines. Not really very fitting fighting in a dress <.<

I'd be more concerned at the cost of the tent @ damn near 60 USD ..

LOL at the marketing picture. That’s one cleverly hidden navel. (chuckles)

@Bree they got rid of the bi-weekly patches and went back to weekly patches.

Tent is a pretty controversial item, but as usual people dialing up the complaints to 11 and overreacting.

Costume contest is cool. Lots of winners from KR costume contest already in the game.
