Black Desert Online’s Drieghan Expansion coming soon, has tons of new content
The upcoming expansion to Black Desert Online, Drieghan has some new details this week coming out of EGX in the UK.
We’re a couple of months out from release of the expansion at this point, but publisher Kakao Games and developer Pearl Abyss are ramping up the hype already.
The update will launch on November 14th, and it brings a ton of new content to the popular MMO. The big draw here is on a new continent, the land of Dreighan, the home of the cursed tribe of Sherekhan, and the new location for players to explore and conquer. There’s hundreds of new quests, and an entirely new storyline to go along with them.
There’s tons of new PvE content, including a new boss fight against a dragon world boss named Garmoth, the Crimson Dragon. The new monsters and areas in the expansion will also introduce a bunch of new mechanics to combat.
The expansion is free to any players who own the game, as BDO is a buy-to-play game.
Down below you can find an official description of the expansion:
“Drieghan, also known as the land of dragons and the ancestral home of dwarves is a huge new mountainous area in Black Desert Online offering new story content, quests and challenges. Adventurers will be able to travel to Duvencrune, the capital of Drieghan which shows a variety of environments of an alpine region. New monster areas such as ‘Sherekhan’s Grave’, ‘Blood Wolf Town’, ‘Tshira Ruins’ will be released as well as the new dragon world boss, Garmoth, the Crimson Dragon. Players can also look forward to the Dragon Slayer, a brand new powerful craftable weapon which nearly matches the “Dandelion” weapon.”
The full game is available now on the PC, and the Xbox One is entering a beta test next month. Check out the trailer for the Drieghan expansion trailer down below.
