    What does 'enter' mean, beginning of alpha or release?
  • PigozzPigozz CPosts: 842Member

    Thats a great news!

    The more I read about the game the more excited I am

    Seamless world with such gfx is something definately worth considering!

    Good news but not as good as expected...

    I already knew they are working in the english version client and that they will have it soon. But they don't mention anything about a publisher here in EU... which is what worries me the most.

    This game can be a tremendously big succes if managed by the right publisher. Do we have one in Europe? Not sure about it... There is thread about that.

    We don't even have a time table for when it comes to Korea or a name for a western publisher, so not going to put much faith in a one year old article telling us when the game could come to europe.

    A year old article indeed...

    It isn't even out yet in Korea, so I'd say that is extremely unlikely.

    Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

    Its not even out in Korea - exactly.

    The game has to launch in Korea first, then Western publishers wait for 6 months to see how the game does.

    Then it takes another year before the game has a chance of launching in the west.

    So 2016 is the earliest you will see this in EU/NA, if at all.

    In fact the game will be released in Korea, Japan, China and Russia at the same time. Again you are writhing nonsense. The good news is, that russian publisher is Innova, which managed Lineage 2 for EU, at least a good news for EU :)

    Whoa thats a great news, considering the speed in which they negotiated the publishing in Russia I wouldnt be surprised if they were in a rush for a European launch

    something is weird...other mmos with 200+ ppl teams are 5-6 years in the making and they make a larger "better" game with a quarter of the people in less than half the time?

    smells fishy to me

    Nope it smells of mmo's are cheaper to make in Asia and right now eastern devs are making western devs look silly and lacking any imagination.

    Sounds like their still looking for a publisher for NA.  This might take awhile.

    Good that a game like this is getting some attention here. Nice change in a forum full of posts related to games like Wildstar and TESO.

    Not saying BD will necessarily be the game to change the market, but at least it goes in a different direction than 99% of MMOs of last decade.

    As for the title, I do not believe there is any chance we will get to play this in 2014. My wild guess would be closed beta in 2015, release Q2 2016.

    I was excited for this then I saw a gameplay video. Everyone looked the same! The giants looked like other giants, casters looked like other casters and fighters look like other fighters, It was like watching clones. Given that there was a video on its in depth character creation, I'm totally confused on how this happened.

    You probably watched the videos were everyone DID looked the same - players were playing templates because it is a BETA! the first closed beta actually

    player character look different now, though there seems to be quite a few different gear models but I guess they want to test the core systems initially, they dont care about the looks really now, which is rather obvious

    btw here is a nice video showing the level of detail of high level armor and customization - again, it blows out of water most other AAA mmos:

    Korean Market seems to be a really realy fast growing market  for mmos-online games and technology in general !!!

    It is :)

     

    Still no publisher for EU or NA yet huh?

    I see that on 14th May the RU publisher will be announced.

    Again - announced publisher is nice, it doesn't mean it will launch this year at all.

    The game has to launch in Korea 1st.

    The whole idea for a new MMO from a new small company launching in multiple regions at once = laughable.

    Sorry - the amount of work and money required for simultaneous launches is INSANE which is why it's almost never done.

    If they even attempt to do this - it's gonna be a MASSIVE failure - as they will have to address issues in 4 different regions at the same time - not even Blizzard would attempt this.

    No company would ever attempt this for a MMORPG.

    A single player game - sure but a simultaneous launch of a MMO for 4 different localizations - Not even Blizzard would attempt this and they have billions of dollars in their bank.

    I am writing nonsense?

    Show me some proof that Black Desert will launch on the same date in 4 different languages by 4 different publishers.

    Do you know how much stuff devs have to change for China MMORPGs? Massive changes, and they all have to be approved by the Chinese entertainment laws.

    So - THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL that Black Desert will launch in China at the same time as 3 other regions.

    You sir are writing nonsense.

    The time-table seems too optimistic but hopefully it's being worked on behind closed doors, somewhere :)

    Not really into Eastern MMO's, but this doesn't look half bad.

  • TeccaTecca Albuquerque, NMPosts: 7Member

    This game will definitely be worth the wait, regardless of when it's released. After getting into the second closed beta and playing for the last couple of weeks, I can easily say that this MMO will be a sure success. And I don't even know Korean. Of course there is such a thing as "too late," so let's hope that's not the case.

    Oh, and the Russian publisher will be GameNet.ru according to the Google Analytics tracking code found on the official RU Black Desert site.

  • SlyLoKSlyLoK Sugar Grove, VAPosts: 1,550Member Uncommon
    If the game doesnt drag on for a long time it should be a pretty good success. But if its like AA and it takes forever then the next big thing will be on its way.

    what is kinda putting me off with the game is the class/skill system...it just seems so outdated
