[Preview] Black Desert: E3 2013 - Our First Look

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe CitadelMMORPG.COM Staff Posts: 21,442 Epic

During E3 last week, we managed to get one of the first-ever views of Pearl Abyss's Black Desert. Check out our preview and then let us know what you think in the comments.

One of the titles that has been on the radar out of Korea is Pearl Abyss's game Black Desert. The game was hidden away on the show floor because they are still working on launching closed beta testing in Korea. However we got a short sneak peek at the game and it made a strong impression. Even though the preview is short we will be following up this coverage soon with an interview to go in depth with much more information. Also the game is looking at North American publishers and Pearl Abyss hopes to have more news on that by the end of the year.

    Really can't wait to see more about this one. It's one of the lesser talked about sandbox mmo's on this site. I've been looking forward to more info on this one more than anything else.

    Nice to see a little more information about this game.  Looks good so far.

    Hell hath no fury like an MMORPG player scorned.

    Possibly the most promising Sandbox mmorpg... we'll have to wait and see.

     

    So far, really liking it.

    Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

    BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.

    But from what i see it's another korean mmo?

    Another great title.. not coming 2013

     

    This year sucks with new releases. Nothing of interest

    The game looks great...right up until you see the combat.  It is 100% ultra-fast paced, action type of combat you would see in an anime MMO, with characters moving so fast it looks like they are missing a lot of animation frames.

     

    The way the combat looks and the way the world looks simply do not match.

    I have been watching this game for awhile now, but I have come to the conclusion that we will not see it for an English release within the next two years...sadly.  AA is a great example of how slow these games transition to the NA/EU Markets.

    And even worse that the titles for NA suck even more.

  • coretex666coretex666 PragueMember Posts: 2,576 Rare

    At this point, the game is very interesting for me. In fact, one of the top games on my radar next to Everquest 3 and ArcheAge.

    Will see what the future brings.

    Thanks for the info but that tells me we won't see this in NA till at least 2015 and that makes me sad.

    Guys, we only had a short time with them at E3. We will be following up with a lot more info over the next few months. The game exceeded our expectations when we saw it. I wish we had more time with them as well.

    Aye, looks that way :(

    Doesn't look like any good mmorpg's are coming out this year.

    And please people don't say, "What about Archeage, Repopulation(don't want to play Sci-Fi) or Wildstar(Another Themepark, hand holder)? Neither of those am I interested in.

    Just because you aren't interested in them doesn't mean they aren't good. :)

    ArcheAge and Elder Scrolls both look intresting to me but not nearly as good as Black Desert.

    I'll take any Korean sandbox. But waiting until 2015 is too painful, so I'd rather just forget about it until the release dates are closer.
  • redcappredcapp brook, NYMember Posts: 722
    Not sure why you would be hyped up about black desert without at least being somewhat interested in AA /shrug

    No offense but when I see Korean MMO + Hot Warrior Chick with ample cleavage.....as much as I like the view I often just walk away.  Burned too many times by being sucked in by "Da Boobies". :p

    I actually thought the armor that girl was wearing was way more realistic than girls usually get. It was sort of what sold me on the game, but I also haven't seen the other female classes so we'll see.

    Game looks amazing so far.

    Not sure if this is an ArcheAge rip off though?? Just saying....

    Keep an eye on it for sure.

    MMORPG Gamers/Developers need a reality check!

    Pvp areas... /sigh

    Woueln't call it a archeage rip off. I think sandparks are just the latest thing in korea.

    I follow pearl abyss on facebook and they answer questions in english all the time. They said 2015 is the worst case scenario for release. Chances are it will come in 2014 if everything goes smoothly.

  • Ngeldu5tNgeldu5t PhoenixMember Posts: 607 Uncommon
    Nice to see some info on this game,I've tried keeping track on it for the past year but there are not too much.I really like their art design.

  • LeiloniLeiloni Member Posts: 726 Uncommon
    Last I read they said the game had no tanks or healers. This is still true I assume? Other than that the game sounds awesome but the idea of no trinity is awful and is really what kills it for me.
