Black Desert on Xbox One Launches Free Update Adding Four Character Classes

Pearl Abyss has launched a new update for their MMORPG Black Desert, available now on Xbox One.

It’s been less than one month since the launch of Black Desert on console and the publisher has been eager to roll out content updates for the game. Today, the company has released a new free content update that adds four new character classes to the game who each bring their own unique skills.

The four new classes are Dark Knight, Lahn, Musa, and Striker. So starting a new game as one of the characters is highly encouraged by the publisher.

The publisher details the four new characters:

  • Dark Knight: Dark Knight wields the beautiful but lethal Kriegsmesser and burns through nature’s energy to amplify her power. Using a variety of ranged magical skills, Dark Knight can confuse her enemies and create opportunities for a deadly combo of attacks.
  • Lahn: Lahn is extremely agile, with the unprecedented ability to leap and glide through the air over long distances. Combined with the flexibility of her Crescent Pendulum, whether she’s facing enemies head on or raining death from above, she is truly a force to be reckoned with.
  • Musa: Musa uses a variety of oriental martial arts, focusing mainly on sword skills and his horn bow. Expert swordsmanship allows Musa to unleash quick and deadly combos, making him an incredibly formidable adversary.
  • Striker: Born in Calpheon and trained by a martial-arts master, Striker is a close-quarters expert with countless years of training and experience. His skill in hand-to-hand attacks results in deadly consequences for those who meet him.

Additionally, a new PvP mode, Node Wars, has been added to the game, which supports 25-100 players. In Node Wars, Guilds will be able to fight over specific node locations until the last for stands. The Guild who wins will be rewarded with gold from part of the worldwide tax collection.

Once per week, Guilds will also be able to participate in Conquest Wars, which are supposedly larger in scale than Node Wars. Players will need to take control of Balenos and Serendia territories in hopes to win an even larger reward.
