Black Desert’s Drieghan expansion launches one week from today, so you might have thought this week’s patch would be nothing at all – but it’s not nothing. In fact, Kakao is cranking up the event machine.
The first event is Rulupee’s Recruiting event, and it leads into the expansion itself. “Drieghan is preparing to open its roads up to adventurers, and Rulupee is already getting ready,” the studio says. “She is recruiting for an expedition to explore this brand new region.” Players level 50 and up will pick up the A New Adventure quest and snag some ratty flags, which you’ll be taking into the new zone.Festival of Millions,” which is handing out a new title to players (over the next 30 days) and adding three new gold-making event challenges. Aaaaaaand there’s a double boss-drop event running right now too.
The rest of the patch is mostly guild tweaks and bug fixes, but players should take a peek at Kakao’s client authentication system plans, which also go into effect today, amid much controversy.
