The finer details of the handover are still being established, so we will be sure to keep you informed on the process as the final date draws closer.”
After February 24, Pearl Abyss will begin self-publishing Black Desert Online in North America and Europe.
Additionally, Jeseok Jang, Black Desert’s Head of Game Design, revealed a new roadmap for the game with new content coming to all platforms beginning on December 22.
First off, though, a new hero, Nova, is set to launch on Black Desert Mobile on December 15 and PC and consoles on December 16. Additionally, a new expansion will be available on December 22 for Black Desert Mobile, adding the Great Desert area to the game.
Some features and game modes coming in the first half of 2021:
- Black Desert Online and Black Desert Console will launch new PvP content, including massive battles between Calpheon and Valencia, with Adventurers from across all servers able to join the fray.
- New 10 v 10 PVP “crew battles” are planned for early 2021.
- Upcoming adjustments to Node Wars – a large scale PvP mode where guilds duke it out for territory ownership – will make it so that players can launch right into the mode from their own camp.
