Black Desert for consoles is possible

Pearl Abyss, the creator of MMORPG ‘Black Desert’, said it is possible that Black Desert supports next generation console like PS4.

Jae-min, Yoon, COO of Pearl Abyss, said “We are trying hard to publish ‘Black Desert’ in NA and Europe. Especially since the console gaming market is huge in western world, we think it is not right just giving up that market. Not now, but we are considering to introduce the game for the next generation consoles.”

Pearl Abyss met with a technical staff from SCE(Sony Computer Entertainment) at Gamescom 2013 and discussed about future possibilities.

‘Black Desert’ seems perfect for consoles because it does not rely on a keyboard and a mouse to control. However, making perfect PC version is the company’s priority for now. They will carefully thinking about console version after launching PC version.

‘Black Desert’ will have CBT in September or October this year.

MMORPG Black Desert is unveiled

A brand new MMORPG Black Desert was revealed last week. The game has been developed by Pearl Abyss, which is led by Dae-il, Kim. He is the producer of various typical Action MMORPGs such as RYL, R2 and C9.

The first play movie shocked us because of its completeness and graphics. The title of the game ‘Black Desert’ is named after oil in Middle East Asia. The background concept of the game is that the land was devastated by wars for Black Stone, which is the core resource of the game world.

Black Desert is using its own game engine to modify things as quickly as possible and support a seamless gaming world with gorgeous graphics. Players could enter and own any structures in the game and buy houses as well. Players could install a smelting furnace to produce useful metals and trade them. Each guild member could buy farms and mines and connected to make a guild activities area.

The combat system of the game is based on non-targeting and is action oriented. The siege warfare is the system that could determine the strongest guild in the game. The guild who won the siege warfare could monopolize game money and products from the region as well as tax.

The game already made a contract with GameOn for Japan publishing.
