    Game overview

    Enter a living world of magic and mystery

    Journey into an epic massively multiplayer online role-playing game set in a rich and varied open world that’s yours to explore.

    From the lush forests of Calpheon to the harsh deserts of Valencia, it’s up to you how you uncover the secrets of Black Desert. Go on quests with friends to slay monsters, demons and gods, relax by crafting, fishing and cooking, or just take in the stunning vistas.

    No matter how you decide to live your life in this world, a day/night cycle, dynamic weather and climate variation, time-based events, and adaptable non-player characters make sure your game is always evolving.

    Expand the world of Black Desert

    Give your adventure a boost with a free major update that adds two new character classes, two large-scale PvP feature modes and a monstrous world boss for you to battle against. 

    Musa class

    Unleash a variety of oriental martial arts in combination with devastating sword skills and a horn bow. 

    Dark Knight class

    Wield the beautiful but lethal Kriegsmesser and burn through nature’s energy to amplify your power in a variety of ranged magical skills. 

    Boss - Kzarka, the Lord of Corruption

    Sealed within a shrine in Serendia centuries ago by sacred magic, a suspicious faction has caused this deadly threat to arise once more. Face him and win the chance of earning yellow grade primary weapons was a reward for victory. 

    Weekly event – Node Wars

    Gather your Guild and engage in strategic combat over specific node locations until only one victor remains. Node Wars supports 25 to 100 players, with the victorious Guild receiving gold from part of the worldwide tax collection for the occupied node for that week.

    Weekly event – Conquest Wars

    If you want a weekly battle which is larger in scale than Node Wars, Conquest Wars tasks you with building Command Posts in the Balenos and Serendia regions and defending them until the bitter end. The winners claim both territories as a reward, and are granted taxes from the entire region for that week.
