Black Desert, the remastered version of the Korean MMORPG, Black Desert Online, is currently available for free on Steam but for a limited time.
This is a promotional event for the game on the platform, and until April 13, 2022, which is Wednesday of next week, players will be able to start the title at no additional cost. However, after this period the game will revert to $10 and players will need to purchase the title if they wish to continue the progress they have made.
The title is often considered one of the best MMOs on the market today, and one of the main factors contributing to its success is the extremely detailed character creation that players can choose from. It’s a staple feature of any MMO made in Korea, and it’s no surprise that it’s one of Black Desert’s biggest selling points.
Moreover, the title is also free to play in South Korea and a few other countries, which also contributes a lot to its popularity.
What will the Black Desert Steam Promotional Event have for players?
Grabbing the game and participating in the promotional event will net players The Traveler Edition, which will include the Eternal Winter expansion. This has been some of the biggest DLC content to hit Black Desert so far, and fans opting into the game will be able to experience the content as well.
The expansion includes the Mountain of Eternal Winter region and a new class called Drakania, which wields a greatsword and has armor crafted from the scales of dead dragons.
Additionally, there will be new boss battles, endgame locations to explore, and ice fishing, as well as a season server for new players. This server is included to help them speed up progress through the help of various buffs and rewards.
Over the years and through several updates, since its very first release date in 2014, the title has become one of the most popular MMORPGs to date.
With Pearl Abyss adding a variety of content with each new expansion and update, the game’s live service model is thriving and attracting more players to its servers every day. It will come as no surprise if this promotional event helps the MMO see another wave of players heading to the servers.
