    The game is still in alpha atm, and will be going into CB in July. Pearl Abyss is hoping for a Korean OB in Dec.2013.

    This video shows you can create your own maps and content.

    Yeah this looks absolutely amazing , there's a few discrepancies in the videos (wow check LOD popping), but yeah it's in alpha, I just hope their combat system is as good as dragons nest.

    I have no words to describe what i just saw............. Thus cant be true......... This game looks better than any current ( sry GW2 ) and upcoming MMOs combined..................

    Looks we might get sanbox game we are waiting and not some On rails, quest grinder with tab targeting and 1+2+3 spam (Archeage)

    Like how you can make ''westen'' (medieval) looking char or ''asian'' inspired ones. Blends two worlds perfectly. Also we need Rhino mount !!!

    Steparu information added to the OP.


    "Players will be able to adventure by solo play, party playing, field raids, normal raids, raid dungeons, chasing, defense kind of games, siege warfare, guild vs guild, and a lot of cool other features."


    "Housing system"


    Its also action combat but it is also playable in first person like an FPS, so you have 3rd person action combat and first person FPS style action combat.

    It's pretty, but looks a bit too good to be true. With the world being as detailed as it is, I bet it'll be mostly a themepark with some sandbox features thrown in. Could be a great game, but I'm not excited yet.

    Since Black Desert Online is a semi-sandbox MMORPG looks like developers think like this. If u read the interview looks like there will be alot of sanbox features.

    It's a LOD mess, but I expect sweeping views like that won't be present during gameplay, so that's OK I guess.


    However, the proportions and sensible architecture is what really gets me about this game, it's just so perfect, especially compared to other MMO games that can't get that right.


    Aesthetically, that's what matters FAR MORE than number of shaders on screen (GW2) or texture resolutions, when going for a realistic approach.

    Anyone notice the LOTR refferences? Legolas, Gimli and Gandalf all feature in there (probably more).

     I'm sure that will all be ironed out, I mean, it's still in Alpha, a closed beta isn't expected until June.

    It's Korean.



    This was what I was thinking.... Western mmorpgs have been so bad as of late, maybe we'll get some creativity out of this keorean indie.

    i'd suspect US release in 2016 when graphics will be behind the times instead of ahead of them.... i really need to move to korea:P

    Classic Asian MMO showcase.

    Stunning visual

    Huge world



    Same fighting animations like the rest of the Asian MMOs

    No ugly women

    Hot women in sexy armour

    I bet many weapons are HUGEMUNGUNS in size

    Very little to do beside grind mobs

    Ohh did I forget....Legolas,Gandalf and Alistar was present in the showcase.


    Who knows they might do something worth playing this time.

    And no I don't believe the feature list until I see it ingame.

    If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

    Heh, ye.. when the mage was swinging the staff, I was waiting for him to smash it into the ground and yell "YOU SHALL NOT PASS".

    Also the walking trees, last march of the ents.


    Definitly drew inspiration from LOTRO.. Not a bad thing though.


    They had plenty of other stuff in there as well, like Olaf! xD

    I missed Alistair though, but I'm a bit tired.

    Why all the cool stuff comes from korea?

    "It has potential"
    -Second most used phrase on existence
    "It sucks"

    Cool video.  Are we entering the age of Asian sandboxes?

    It's from a new developer, so I won't make assumptions that it would just be another Korean MMO.

    It's drawing a lot of inspiration from the more classic European style medival fantasy (like Tolkein for example).  Look at the outfits and weapons the characters are wearing/wielding.  No massive spiky armor on the males or stripperiffic armor on the females.  Weapons are all reasonably sized and not larger than the character.  The world and monsters look like they came straight out of DnD.  The classes seem pretty neat and not gender locked.

    It has all the makings of a good sandbox hybrid.  Excellent housing system, massive sieged warfare, mounted combat, parkour, a unique trading system, action oriented combat, huge bosses, seamless world with no loading times, things to do outside of combat, weather plays a factor in gameplay, etc.  Definitely encourage people to keep an eye out for this one.  Like a lot of upcoming Korean MMOs it seems to be taking cues from MMOs and fantasy in the West.  There definitely seems to be a paradigm shift going on in Korean game development.

    As long as the content is on par with what was shown in the video (and there is enough of it) this could very well be the perfect game for me.  All they need to do (and any Korean developer for that matter serious about a Western release) is release it simultaneously worldwide, but the chances of that happening are slim.


    Raptr link because it's the cool new trend:

    Has potential , like the fact that there is player housing, and nice to see a game with combat similar to Tera.
  • KarteliKarteli Providence, PAPosts: 2,646Member

    Looks good still, but now that see more of the combat, I hate it.


    That zoom in-zoom out blurr effect that happens with every hit is going to end up giving me headaches, I just know it.


    The graphics look good overall, which makes me worried that the gameplay is going to stink.  Too early to tell.  I did notice that the trailer was very careful to avoid embaressing moments with glitches, like clipping.  Something big mobs & mounts are notorious for.  Need a gameplay video really to judge this one.
