    Why talk about a game, on a western game site, that only has a release for Asia set?
  • JimyHumuHumuJimyHumuHumu BilbaoPosts: 250Member
     or if they are able to locate said game via google, which doesnt apply in this case. 
  • CaldrinCaldrin CwmbranPosts: 4,533Member Uncommon

    I love a good conspiracy theory.  Tell me more.  Did the shadey dealings go down in a dark alley?

    The publishers would need to advertise the game a bit first, as others have said we cant even find an official website..

    Looked great....up until they started fighting.  Somehow the typical Asian fast-combo arcade fighting style just did not mesh with what the world looked like.  It looked like a Skyrim type setting, more real looking....then you see people flipping around in plate armor.

     

    Asian MMOs seem unable to break the bonds of character prettiness.  Just by watching a couple of minutes of that trialer, I know there exists a beast race, a girl with tail race, a tall pretty-boy elven race, and odd looking mounts...

     

    Western MMO developers cannot get out of the themepark mold, while their Asian counterparts cannot get out of the pretty character thing.

    i thought the same.

     

    they should have a more realistic version like age of conan for example. the fighting in the trailer reminded me at guild wars 2. its not a totally bad system, but it doesnt fit into the rest of the world.

     

    game companies are afraid of doing "normal" mmorpg combat anymore. in my opinion, average theme ark with standard combat is bad, but a good immersive sandbox with standard combat is good because combat and twitchiness isnt the most important thing.

     

    something between and for me the best combat system so far ... age of conan. 

     

    but i guess its too late for them and we shouldnt forget that the asian market seems more important for them and they probably love that style

    I've had my eye on this title for some time. It looks very interesting but like several others I'm a bit concerned about the underwear model-style characters and the bling bling-looking combat.

    While it's very well done from a technical point of view I'd have prefered a grittier, more realistic style. It would have fit better with the world design and overall atmosphere of the game.

    Still, it will probably be an awesome game feature-wise.

    SUMMARY:

    Here is a summary about the features of BDO (translation not 100% accurate, keep that in mind when reading some odd stuff):

    • Confrontation is a magical resource "Black Stone", which is a source of energy and that is mined in the desert.

    • Each property has its own physical space (not an instance, like in AA).
    World map and a brief description of it:
    image
    • The picture above shows the world of Black Desert. Colorful area called Balenos. Below the Balenos is a territory called Serendia, and on the right you can see a large area Calpheon.
    • All three zones are located near the sea, so there are a large number of mountains and forests. If you go to the south, the weather turns colder and warmer in the north.
    • If you look to the right side, then your eyes gaze at the huge desert areas.
    Races and classes:
    • The game has a different kind of race of giants, hobbits, elves, dwarves and humans;

    • Construction homes are not planned, but players will be able to set up the tents.
    Guild:
    • Guild system will be implemented through the hiring and hired workers will be able to perform different jobs (for example, work on the farm).
    • Each player during the study of the world game will receive "explore point" for the discovery of new places, completing quests, killing special monsters, etc., which will then invest "explore nodes", which will give different benefits depending on the area.
    • When joining the guild, these "explore nodes", belonging to players, will dock, which will determine the area of ??activity (approx. Mel: influence?) Guild.
    • Guild may become bankrupt.

    [mod edit]

    Anyway, I watched the trailer and I think it looks promising.  If asian graphics turn you off then you won't play it.  Although I don't think it looks really asian like some games can.  It seems to have many of the feature that alot of people here are clamoring for as well.  Time will tell, as in all things.
