Black Desert Journeys West in 2015

Black Desert Journeys West in 2015

Thanks to Daum Games, Black Desert is getting a sudden release move-up. Supposedly, the hype and excitement of the Western community pushed the release date up. The developers plan on bringing the game to Western markets (Europe and North America) in 2015, as opposed to the original nebulous release planned for … who knew when?

The best part is that Daum is working with the original Korean developer, Pearl Abyss. Rather than finding a suitable Western publisher, they decided to expand westward themselves. The game will likely remain a free-to-play title, like it is in Korea, and if the same company is handling both markets, we may actually see some timely updates! Good news.

Editor’s Note: The article has been updated to correct Daum being listed as the developer – Pearl Abyss is actually the original Korean developer.

I'm a pretty chill guy. Huge video game fan, but a bigger anime fan. I also love to write - obviously.

    Saw a trailer the other day and the game oozes beauty. Wish I had a PC up to spec but alas, I’m just a peasant.

    After burning my hand with Archeage, I’m very reluctant to try another Korean game. If it’s anywhere near as grindy and monotonous as Archeage, then I’m not going near this thing.

    Honestly, Archeage never even looked good to me, I don’t understand why people thought it would be anything other than a grindy, boring MMO.
    “Yay ships!” or something, right?

    This isn’t a typical slow-pased MMO, it’s clearly designed with the combat in mind, so I don’t think I would mind a grind, but it’s Korean, so if you don’t go in expecting a grind, you’re doing it very wrong.
