[Interview] Black Desert: Daeil Kim On What Sets Their Game Apart

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,572MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

In recent weeks, Black Desert has been making people's heads turn. We managed to catch up to Daeil Kim to talk with him about what makes Black Desert so unique and different from any other MMO out there. See what the difference is before weighing in on the discussion in the comments.

MMORPG.COM: There has been a lot of talk about combat in your game. Can you sum up your combat system for Western Players? What elements set it apart from other MMOs?

Daeil Kim: I was a big fan of 2D based fighting games such as Street Fighter, Final Fight, and Samurai Showdown, but it has proven difficult to bring the fighting action of those games to 3D MMORPGs.

    In all honesty anything that has the word sandbox in I would be interested in taking a look at it. I hope the game does well. I may just try it.

    Really keeping an eye on this game, thanks for covering it MMORPG.com.  Keep bugging them for beta keys :)

    from the trailers it looks like they have managed to create a very alive world with NPCs that have a purpose of their own, rather than just standing in one spot waiting to be talked to or killed. I really hope that is the case and not just staged for the trailers. 

    The combat looks really interesting. Certainly it seems to have impact. Not sure I like how the camera moves though. 

    Definitely keeping an eye on this

    My #1 most anticipated MMO, sandbox, action combat and graphics that make TERAs look terrible.

     

    Also fluff features like housing, parkour, dynamic weather and more.

    The game looks amazing. It shows many different cultures and day-to-day village/city life akin to 18th century but in a fantasy setting. I always wanted mmos to have different human cultures in the game and develop different cultures for it's fantasy races too and it seems this game at least attempts to do that a little bit. I hope it comes to the west and finds a playerbase.

    Myself as well. This is really the only mmo I'm looking forward to other than TESO which I have mixed feelings about and will have to see what they do with it in the coming year.

    As long as this game doesn't add completely silly things or things that are extremely anachronistic then "I'm in".

    The environment and medieval setup looks fantastic, too bad they are ruining it with asian style characters and combat :(


    Edit: Oh, it's Korean developer...

    I have been following this game for some time and have to admit that I am quite excited about it.

    One of the many problems I had with MMOs released in last decade is that they somehow lack "soul" if it makes any sense.

    So far, I have not had this feeling regarding this game...well...at least based on interviews and videos.

    i can never get used to the mouse and number pressing action combat D: , somehow i've really prefered gw2 combat system, hope they meet somewhere between the lines for black desert. so that players who like both can meld.

    I get want you mean about soul. So many seem rehashed copies lacking a spark of life in them.

     I agree, I really hope they don't pull a TERA with the route it's been going lately, casualized and goofy Korean style pets/weapons/mounts/cosmetics.

     

    I really hate that kind of stuff, I have hopes Black Desert can keep it's medieval theme.

    Light fantasy medieval would be nice. From the videos, it does look like it keeps some realism at least in terms of architecture, etc.

    I had heard of some people highly expecting a game called Black Desert, but I had no idea what it was. WOW, this game has shot from something I knew nothing about to being more anticipated for me than ESO and ArchAge. Those two trailers are beyond stunning, and like many others I've had enough crappy themepark mmo's to fill a life-time.

     

    The age of the themepark is over the age of the sandbox has begun (again =P)!

    Dozens of MMO's, RTS's, FPS's, etc.

    interest peaked

    reviews are !@#$ing stupid. Play what you love.

  • TorvalTorval Oregon CountryPosts: 7,187Member Uncommon
    I'll be interested in seeing how this works out for you guys that are looking forward to this.  Some stuff sounds really cool, but the limited availability, dominant guild controlling things does not at all.
  • Dren_UtogiDren_Utogi OuterSpacePosts: 1,707Member Uncommon
    Imho : This is the best trailer released in 2013. Just epic all the way around. Can't wait to see more !
    I got that shadowbane gitty feeling :D

    Nice read, ty.

    I did not like the part regarding housing though, sounds like it will be another game that offers a housing market that can be cornered by a small group of hardcore gamers and possible exploiters/hackers, any dev team can say this will not happen but it has occurred in many games prior without change.

    Cant say i like that system of some housing as opposed to open world housing, i mean in a sandbox game you aim for these things, you should not be limited and forced to play into boredom for the insane amount of pixel value it will cost to buy your spot off of one of the above type players multiple houses.

    Other than that i like the sound of the game, have been following it for awhile and will still try it out as it sounds like my kind of game....with or without a poorly arranged housing system.

    Yeah I agree with that, what ends up happening is what is happening to Darkfall UW and what happened to Darkfall, Giving housing control to large clans with small minds is a bad idea and will hurt the game in the long run...big time.   I hope they see this before they release and change that idea.

    If they dont the economy, map....everything will be controlled by a large clan, and if they think its up to a playerbase to change that...then they really need to resort to the history of Darkfall.

    For some reason while watching the fighting I thought of Vindictus

    Anything with sandbox in it, is a Player Killing/PvP/gankfest.
