Pearl Abyss just released some more gameplay of Black Desert Remastered showcasing the next visual upgrade to the already beautiful game. You can find the full announcement over the official forums.
The videos, which you can find below, showcase the new visual and audio elements coming to the MMO with this major update. There’s a whole batch of graphical tech being introduced in this update that functions as a massive upgrade to the visuals in BDO, here are the highlights:
Physically based rendering
Physically based lighting
Physically based atmospheric scattering
Improved post processing with YEBIS
Improved screen space reflection
Improved ambient occlusion
Improved ocean rendering
All of these changes are only part of the update though. At a later date, gameplay elements will also be added. One of the big changes is Militarized Subjugation, which is a new system that allows players to use their inactive alternate characters in a similar fashion to their hired workers. These alts can be combined with armies of mercenaries to farm monsters in a specific location, earning rare loot for the player.
When the update drops next week, there will also be login bonuses for all active players. Anyone who plays BDO in between August 22nd and August 29th will receive a free Tier 7 horse and a limited edition Golden Lahr Arcien horse armor set.
