I was just browsing through Google looking at upcoming MMOs and saw the trailer for Black Desert a Korean MMO currently being developed by Pearl Abyss and my mind was completely blown. The combat looks like the typical MMO fair when it comes to one on one, but My God! large battles, semi destructible walls, Multi-person mounts WITH mounted combat.
Then simply holy crap! No other PG rated way of saying it but holy crap!!! The game world, the game world!!! Beyond mind blowing I don't even see how Pearl Abyss is going to manage all this. Black Desert truly looks like a Next Gen MMO if I have ever seen one. The graphics are simply stunning, it honestly looks like a few of the Skyrim mods I have seen.
Now onto the the features real living breathing cities watching the trailer it looked like what you would expect from a AAA single player rpg, city sieges, a seamless world with no load times except for instances, trading, crafting, non-instanced player owned homes, and possibly even a breeding system for mounts, and as previously mentioned by me Multi-person mounts with mounted combat!!!, and may I add I did not count but I saw what seemed to be around 10 playable races.
The beauty, the beauty of this game is simply too much.
If this game comes out looking even close to how beautiful this trailer is its going to be a major kick in the pants for other developers.
Black Desert is currently heading towards an eastern closed beta set to begin in July with an open beta planned for later this year. Pearl Abyss is currently shopping around for a Western publisher with the current plan being to have the European open beta ready by 2015.
Link to the article and if you do not watch the trailer in HD I may just have to reach through your computer screen and slap you. http://www.forbes.com/sites/erikkain/2013/01/25/black-desert-is-an-amazing-looking-mmorpg-and-it-has-the-trailer-to-prove-it/
Edit: Full interview in Italian and English with detailed information regarding the combat system link to shorter version is on 2nd page of this thread. http://www.worldsfactory.net/giochi/pc/black-desert-intervista-esclusiva
Edit: Highly recommend reading the interview really goes in depth on a few things besides just combat the way I made it sound.
Edit: Just realised I forgot to mention one of the coolest sounding features Black Desert is aiming at having a parkour system. For anyone who just loves exploring in MMOs I feel this should be an amazing feature.
Edit: Another interview found by mairic I really loved the information regarding the ability to turn our houses into stores and workshops. The gender comments should not be too much of a worry when Gender locking was mentioned I guess it quickly met with heated feedback this post Was from back in February. http://blackdesertspoint.8forum.net/t11-fresh-interview-with-the-black-deserts-team
Edit:Fairly recent interview giving lots of information. Brian Oh, the Director of Business Development hints towards the game being not so grindy and gives more information on multiple topics. The one worry I gained from this interview was the fact a rich player may own more than one house with a limited number available per server this could be an issue. At least owners must repurchase their house after 3 months. Also for all we know more cities and housing may even be added with expansions.
Edit: A new fan made feature video discussing most of what I have mentioned but has a lot more footage than I have seen not quite sure where he got some of it, but however he got it the game still looks amazing. The footage once again is still alpha so there is some clipping, pop in, and the player characters do not blink however this must be temporary because I noticed the NPCs and monsters were blinking. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9EljAdiTXpk Just a heads up the guy talks about as fast as I do when I'm overtired, which is quite fast lol.
