Black Desert brought the good stuff to fan con Heidel Ball this weekend thanks to a slew of announcements about new content inbound for the MMORPG.
The companies have also announced a new expansion dubbed The Great Expedition.
“A new expansion named ‘The Great Expedition’ will see the introduction of new wind and current mechanics to the ocean of Black Desert Online. Traversing the high seas will now become more rewarding to players that can skillfully utilize the winds and current to reach their destination more quickly. The addition of new islands to the ocean and new ships will give players even more reasons to explore this new content. The new islands will have special trade mechanics and players can use one of the new trading-focused ships to transport goods between islands, making a nice profit in the process. The new islands are easily distinguishable by their unique themes, but finding the correct one will require navigations mastery within the new current and wind mechanics.”
There’s more, of course, including the new PvP-based Altar of Blood: a new, smaller take on the Savage Rift mechanics but linked to the Star’s End content. And PA is likewise working on balancing passes for grind spots (love that they call them that) and upgrades to the UI and life skills. One down note? The O’dyllita region and territory war content have been postponed for now. Check out the whole trailer below!
