Black Desert Mobile opens global pre-registration ahead of a 2019 launch

A lot of the news we’ve been getting out of Black Desert Mobile has been primarily focused on the Korean version of the game, which makes sense considering that’s where it’s released right now. That appears to be changing very soon, however, as the mobile sandbox MMORPG has suddenly opened up a new dedicated website which will let iOS and Android users pre-register for the game and also offers a closer look at what to expect.

All things considered, the mobile edition of Black Desert looks to be pretty feature-rich: Players can pick from five different classes and look forward to several pieces of familiar content such as a skill-based combo-heavy combat, world boss fights, node and siege PvP, and more pastoral pursuits in the form of harvesting and building up a camp. The game promises to create new content that will let players from all over the world compete and cooperate with each other, and looks to be playable on even low-end mobile devices.

A firm calendar date for release is still not announced, but the FAQ reiterates what Pearl Abyss has maintained all summer: that players can expect Black Desert Mobile to make a simultaneous release for iOS and Android sometime in 2019.

BDO Mobile looks really amazing for a mobile game.

However if you look at the quarterly earnings it makes me really leery to look into a game that pulls in twice as much income as the PC version.

I see a fairly high-quality mobile game here, not a cash grab.

Realistically if you wanted you could post this video to almost every game announcement ever, because they’re pretty much never doing them as a free gift to the world. They’re mostly all to make money.

Even if you don’t see mobile as being a cash grab, mobile games are designed to be cash shop centric.

So, it is all about the money.

And, these days, yup. With a few rare exceptions, every free to play, cash shop centric game with purposefully monetized system design is intended for one purpose only, and it isn’t entertainment.

BD on mobile looks awesome. Lots of smartphones around the world = lots of potential players.

It does look really good. I hope it’s as high quality and fun as this video is making it look. That’s looking better than a huge percentage of PC games that have been being released lately.

Honestly if ends up as cool as it’s looking here, maybe they should do cross-play and release a PC version of it as well. I know we can basically play them on PC because of emulators but a PC client and control scheme would work out a lot better.
