Black Desert Online News - If you thought World of Warcraft's 14 years was a major accomplishment, it's nothing compared to the Black Desert Online team's dream of keeping the game going for another 20-30 years! This news was revealed in a new developer diary that lays out some of what you can expect to see coming to the game in the shorter term and throughout 2018.

    Hmm.. hat's a loooong time for a game to run. Even single player games have trouble staying relevant and working on new systems after 10 years.. But I hope so, I do enjoy the game.

    That's overly ambitious lol. If they add decent pve content I'll consider returning again as I love their combat system.

    Goodluck to them I guess.

    20-30 years of mob grinding?
    Not even Ragnarok is that ambitious. LOL

    remove ip block, release on console already, and make console and pc cross play. That alone will add a few extra years of life. Let alone all the improvements and new content it will need.

    The way the game is run/managed today not even 10 years are guaranteed.

    In 20 years gaming will be completely different so no. If they said 5 -10 years would be more realistic but even then I doubt it.

    I thought this was a medieval / fantasy game... why the Old Navy Christmas sweater?

    Because it's an Asian game and for some reason they have no problems mixing in anachronistic bits and bobs.

    Though, it is holiday time so I can sort of see some games loosening up and having things that fit the season.

    "I" wouldn't do that for a game I designed but apparently they find it fun.

    Nah it's already a dead game. It's players are just waiting for the next game to come out that's 1/2 way not garbage for a reason to leave.

    Screw leveling games, give me something with "End game" at the beginning of the game.

    They'll need to remove the constant casino-style "player X won this!" popups for me to consider coming back.

    The combat system is also another turn off for me, but I might could learn to enjoy it.  However, I cannot stomach the "storefront" vibe I got continuously while playing the game.

    Thirty years is a long time. This is the game list from 1987 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:1987_video_games.

    Take a look at what those games look like compared to the present. On top of that they're assuming the platform paradigm will be the same 30 years from now. I don't think so.

    Most games do this in some way especially during the holiday. Look at the Life Is Feudal news post and that game is hardcore on the realism for an MMO.

    I think Westerners often think of high fantasy in a very static manner. If it has swords and elves the mental association clicks with medieval Europe and Tolkein and the concept of technology is jarring.

    From my perspective high fantasy is treated differently in SEA. For one there is a huge section of anime and manga that offer a concept of magic in an evolving society which is why you see a lot of steampunk - clockwork - magicka - tech blending. Magicka and swords doesn't equate to medieval in many fantasy settings, at least in the East.

    There is an episode of Avatar: The Last Airbender where Aang has to go to school in the Fire Nation. There is a party, beach volleyball, and other sorts of modernish social constructs, but they're presented in a context that makes sense. It makes you consider the setting of the show as an actual world you can draw personal parallels with.

    Now that's often taken to the extreme because blending geek pop culture into gaming and vice versa is a popular social construct, at least in Korea and Japan if not the rest of SEA.

    You can disable those notifications in game settings.

    Tried that but it didn't have the intended effect.  Found that I wasn't the only one with that issue after I performed a Google search on the topic. :/

    You have to check off the boxes for the ones you don't want to see.

    BDO will likely last at least 10 years or so compared to Albion it's got a lot more players, better graphics, and people give copies of the game away for free all the time...

    What kinda sucks is they don't actually give you any costumes for Christmas but make you spend $22 for one although its ugly anyways.

    Although they give away BSA every day makes it a less of a grind fest over time, and if people need the copy of the game for free I've given away 15 copies of the game for free recently just for the hedgehog so the game is pretty much free.

    I understood how the options worked, it's just that checking or unchecking them didn't actually remove the popups.  Seemed to be a bug with the client from what I read online.

    Make the game for other groups of players instead of just people that love grinding and PvP, and I might come back. Right now it's fun for a month or two and then it gets stale. Also I hate forced PvP.

    If you choose to play a game that has open world pvp it's not "force pvp".

    That's like playing football and saying you hate forced tackling or going to a comedy and saying it has forced laughing.

    Entering a marathon and saying forced running?

    Or playing a game and saying it forces you to "play it".
