Black Desert Online Xbox One Beta Starts Fall 2018
During E3 2018’s Microsoft presser, more details were revealed about the newest version of Black Desert Online. A trailer was released showing work-in-progress gameplay and other details about the Xbox One version of the MMO. The trailer also revealed a release window for the Xbox One beta, which will begin this fall.
With more than two years of content updates added to the PC version of BDO, it will be a long time before Xbox players get to see everything in the game. The console crowd will get 4K support right out of the gate though. There’s been no official confirmation as to what content from the PC version will make it into the first Xbox One release, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
Check out the trailer and an official overview of the game’s features below.
“Black Desert is an open world, action MMORPG with incredible graphics, intense action and thrilling skill based combat. Seamless transitions between areas help make the game feel like a real vast open world waiting to be explored. Adventurers can take down monsters and gargantuan bosses, fight for control of nodes with other guild members or engage in profitable life skills. They can craft items, catch fish, tame and train wild horses, and immerse themselves in an entire world that is theirs for the taking. The game allows users to create unique characters with one of the most detailed character creation tools available. It’s the MMORPG that allows users to break away from the crowd and “become your true self”.
The game is set in a medieval fantasy world, where players are caught in the middle of a conflict between two rival nations, the Republic of Calpheon and the Kingdom of Valencia. They have been in war over the Black Stones, a mysterious energy source which grants power to those who use them. The stones are a very valuable resource in the world and players will need to discover the secrets behind these Black Stones.”
