Black Desert is the console adaption of the popular MMORPG Black Desert Online, which combines cutting edge visuals with fast paced combat and a vast fantasy open world.
In Black Desert players will be able to choose between six unique character classes (Warrior, Ranger, Sorceress, Berserker, Wizard and Witch), each with their own unique skills and combat styles (and there’s a very impressive character creation tool that allows you to customize every little detail about them). Combat is non-target based and allows for fast paced battles full of brutal action and fluid combos.
Aside from the monster slaying combat and PvP, there’s a lot to keep you occupied in the world of Black Desert. You can explore, farm, trade, hunt, fish and sail, among many other things, building your life in the game’s vibrant open world. You gain knowledge from combat and other activities, and in this world knowledge is power, with everything you learn giving you an advantage in the battlefield.
Black Desert Online has seen a lot of success on PC thanks to its high quality visuals and fun combat. It’s not the most deep game in the world though and has been plagued with microtransactions and pay-to-win mechanics. Hopefully the devs address these issues in the console release as it has the making of an excellent MMORPG otherwise.
