MAJOR UPDATES


  • The new Summer Season Servers have begun.            

Black Desert's first Season Servers have finally opened. We hope that many new adventurers will be able to join and bear witness to the fruits of our long, hard labor. We shuffled through a variety of ideas during development, and we came to settle on three main points while preparing to launch the Season Servers. 

  

First, we wanted to aid new adventurers to adjust quickly by rewarding them strictly for their efforts alone. We wanted to avoid any situations where an adventurer would be entrusted with overwhelming power from the get-go. We especially focused on ""gear"", an area most stressful for newcomers to Black Desert. With ""Tuvala"" gear and ""Time-filled Black Stones"" which are only obtainable on the new Season Servers, we made it easier to obtain and enhance boss-level gear. However, similar to how adventurers graduate from the mantle of novice by learning how to enhance gear to TRI-TET-PEN levels, enhancing this new gear won't be that easy, and will require a considerable number of ""stacks"" to boot. This will offer a somewhat milder introduction to Black Desert's unique upgrade system, so new adventurers will be able to laugh and cry as they  gain a sense of accomplishment and adjust to the same content that other seasoned adventurers have been exposed to all this time. We believe this will create a healthy cycle that we will continue to maintain and base future content on. 

  

Second, we wanted to provide a never-before-enjoyed exciting experience in the opening of a new server in Black Desert. While the Olvia servers were implemented as the original growth experience and have been maintained well thus far, being always open has somewhat lessened the initial feeling of excitement. We believe that the seasonal operation of the Season Servers will be able to fill in that gap. Therefore, there will be certain restrictions such as being unable to equip already-existing gear and mounting dream horses in these servers. We wanted all adventurers to start on equal footing, and deliver the sentiment of ""A new server's open! Let's go-go-go!"" Of course, it is impossible to launch something at 100%, but we hope that when many adventurers come together, they'll be able to experience a more abundant and livelier MMORPG world.              

Third and lastly, when the season comes to a close and characters are transferred over to normal servers, we wanted to make sure adventurers would be continually supported while adjusting. Black Desert is chock-full of content it has accumulated over the years. While this is a huge strength, it can also come off a bit daunting. While most of the content is unrestricted on Season Servers, this is also the reason why we focused on gear rewards, i.e. the combat system, in order to lessen some of the burden. After characters are moved over to existing servers, we plan on providing further ways for the ""1st Season Server Graduates"" to more easily access a variety of in-game content. 

  

Looking back, it has already been 5 years and 4 months since we first began servicing Black Desert. Black Desert is a game we love with a passion, and we truly wish to continue servicing this game for a long long time, together with all of our adventurers. Particularly, there are certain values we hope to uphold as we continue servicing the game. That is, the preservation of effort and easing the gap. The new season servers were also developed with these values in mind, and we hope that you will be able to experience the fruits of our hard work and will. Being a first for us, there are bound to be shortcomings, but we promise to address them quickly and effectively. We humbly ask for your understanding and hope you enjoy the game. Thank you.
