Today Kakao Games revealed with a press release the mysterious new Black Desert Online class that was initially teased during an event in Korea a few months ago.

The mystic is a new female class that appears to have a similar monk theme to the male Striker, but if previous classes like wizard/witch and ninja/kunoichi are any indication, there will be gameplay differences between the two.

According to the publisher, the class will appear first in Korea, but it’ll come in Q4 2017 to the western servers as well. More in-depth info and footage of the Mystic will be revealed next week.

We also hear that developer Pearl Abyss is also creating a variety of further free updates for 2017, of which we have seen a glimpse during the same event that teased the mystic.

Among that content we’ll get the massive Kamasylvia Expansion, new world bosses, a co-op horde mode, new siege war content and a new PvP arena.

At the moment Black Desert Online is available only for PC (both stand-alone and via Steam), but at Microsoft’s E3 press conference we learned that the game is coming for Xbox One and Xbox One X in early 2018. A while ago, we also got confirmation that it will be released for the PS4 family of consoles as well, even if no info has been given on how long PlayStation players will have to wait in order to get their hands on the game.

Incidentally, the new summer event has been launched on the western servers, and you can read about it here.

You can check out a few renders of the mystic below.
