The latest Black Desert trailer to be released shows off mounted combat in the forthcoming title. According to beta reports, there is some limitation to the skills that can be used while simultaneously fighting and riding but it looks pretty amazing all in all. See what you think and let us know in the comments.

    They need to get rid of the "yeeeeaaaa" and "aiyee" sounds as you fight.  Annoying as heck.

    It wasn't the mounting animations that seem off as much as how the developers are using the mounts.  If they are going to have mounted combat they really need to invest some time into developing weapons that are designed with the use of a mount in mind.   The only characters with halfway decent weapons for mounted combat are the archer and the mage.  The warrior really needs a lance, halberd, or spear to get some reach going as that sword doesn't look like it should even reach as far as it is.  I got mixed feelings on the giant: He's got enough reach and the knock down is pretty sweet, but it would help if the player could control which side the giant is swinging his axe on, otherwise it's basically Dynasty Warriors style Dian Wei (it was either Dian Wei or the other guy with the two halberds who has that swing left and swing right mounted attack).  

    Actually, that would be sweet if we could get dynasty warriors style mounted combat going in this game.  That way people could have a mounted team that runs in and knocks over the other teams defensive lines, thus giving the ground based players an opening to get some swings in.  Not to mention war elephants!  =)

    I like the look and gameplay of this game, just hope it doesn't turn into another RaiderZ which started out great but turned out to be a very hollow game, but seeing the videos of PvP and city interactions it seems it may not.

    I just want a game like this that is large, open world and full of content, if this is it then I will be very happy indeed. Nothing ruins a game like this worse than having hub zones and small areas.

    It's not that bad just needs work.

    The giant "bleyah bleyah bleyah bleyah bleyah" sound was hillarious. Also sorceress spell sound sounded like loud pounding a heavy wooden door "boom boom boom boom".

    Also swinging your sword through your horses neck lol - ouch.

    My issue with mounted combat - single button mash, it's just so.... simple.


    As the rest of the game - it's not quite baked yet, needs more time in the oven.
