Hear that crackle in the air? See that ripple on the distant horizon? It’s Black Desert’s remastered version, launching here in the west tomorrowday.

“The development team at Pearl Abyss has diligently worked to improve every aspect of the game,” today’s press release says. “The popular MMORPG has undergone a massive graphics overhaul and will receive a grand new orchestrated score to provide an immersive experience like never before. A trailer was released today to highlight the improvements achieved in Black Desert: Remastered. Never before has an online game looked so vivid and detailed. The new visual enhancement brings a host of changes including revolutionary post processing effects, reworked textures and improved animations that further cements Black Desert Online’s position as the most visually stunning MMORPG on the market.”

That trailer is down below. Kakao further says that everybody who logs in between August 22nd and 29th – even free trial folks – will be picking up a freebie T7 horse and accompanying Divine Lahr Arcien Horse Gear Set, normally worth $20. Expect a cash shop sale to go along with that too.

Incidentally, since we were just talking about MMORPG esports yesterday: Black Desert’s GvG tourney is still happening, and yes, there’s money in it for the winners!

The upgraded graphics are absolutely f*cking awesome, and although I wasn’t expecting to be impressed by the music, I’m currently sitting on a wall in Olvia listening to the new soundtrack. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s certainly mine.

The game needs a PvE overhaul, not better graphics… At the end of the day, you will be killing 6k mobs per day, every day, forever, because that is all you have to do.

“But it is a PvP game”… Is it? What is the PvP reward? Karma points… Nah… Black Desert is a terrible game, not enough PvE (grind all day every day forever) and no reason to PvP at all.

Sad part about asian mmo’s is that it is either pay to win or grind till you die.

The power diffrence between people is so gigantic that for pvp this game is not even close to being fun even if you with limited time would try to love it.

Archeage and BDO could have been so much more but instead they choosed a diffrent path.

The popins are so dramatic i needed to uninstal it as it was beyond horrific to see whole horizons just popin 5 meters in front of you over and over and over again.

If they would fix that shait i might give it another try otherwise i wont ever touch that game again.

The freebies end 3 days before my 30 days of being gone is up! (I like to do this so I can come back and play on the newbie server, get free log-in fluff and get 3 week’s free value packs and a coupon discount for a 30 day one. I’ll have to give this more mental debating soon. FFXIV has me totally engaged right now, so logging in before my time’s up may lose out!

Any word on the pop-in trees? Trailer didn’t seem to move around much distance to verify if it’s still a thing or not. Otherwise, it looks great. Love the rain.

Don’t really care at all about the graphics. Maybe when 2280 Ti or something comes out and we can power them to 60 FPS on 4k then that setting will be useful but not going to play the game at 40 FPS for more fog and shiny bits everywhere that has a semi reflective surface.

Now that remastered audio though, going to be actually turning that music back on first time in years.

I am totally gonna run it tomorrow to see the new graphics, although for now I am playing FFXIV.. but surelly when I get a break from FF, will return to BDO. The screenshots are awesome, but I see none from the sea, which was 1 area that wanted improvements for sure. I hope its just a coincidence and there is also a good improvement on the ocean!

I hope they sort out a male archer class soon . Brought the game while it was cheap a while back but the lack of a male ranged class that I like has kept me from wanting to play .

Male Ranger is coming later in 2019 in KR. Was already confirmed by them as part of their BDO remastered presentation.
