Daum Games has announced that Black Desert Online’s second and final Closed Beta Test will begin on February 18th. Players who have pre-ordered the Explorer’s or Conqueror’s package will be automatically entered in the Beta, while others can apply for access in early February. More details about the second Closed Beta Test, including end date, improvements over the first Beta, and special events, will be revealed at a later stage.
Black Desert Online is an open world action MMORPG with next-generation visuals and skill-based combat that aims to rejuvenate the genre. The game is targeting both newcomers and veterans of MMO games and action RPGs with intuitive controls, a beautifully designed world, and extensive lore.
Daum Games has also revealed the standalone launch of the Black Desert Online Character Creator, the deepest customization tool of any game on the market. Let your imagination run wilder than ever before using the independent Character Creator, available today for free.
Watch the new video below that showcases the incredible breadth of possibilities the Character Creator allows for:
Players will be able to import characters made in the Character Creator for use in both the full Black Desert Online game and the second Closed Beta Test beginning next month. Full instructions to use completed characters in Black Desert Online as well as special opportunities open to everyone who gets creative with the Character Creator can be found on the event page, accessible from the Character Creator client.
In addition, a PM diary containing updates about the cash shop, localization, and response to player feedback was published on Friday. Head to the Black Desert Online forums to get up to speed and get a special sneak peek at new content.
Players can still pre-order one of three Black Desert Online packages, starting at €29.99 (approx. £23) on the official website.
EF will be bringing you impressions of the game along with a full review later in 2016.
