The folks at Pearl Abyss have been busy with the development of Black Desert Online, and they just announced that the closed beta of the upcoming MMORPG is going to begin in Korea this fall. Unfortunately it’ll probably be region locked, but the developer is meeting with foreign publishers in order to move the game westwards as soon as possible.
They’ve been also hard at work on improving the quality of effects and animations, on optimizing performance, and on the user interface.
On the localization front they finally released the official English logo of the game (you can see it in the gallery at the bottom of the post) and the English name of the four available classes: Warrior, Ranger, Sorcerer and Giant.
Even more interestingly they released a new and spectacular trailer and some absolutely lovely screenshots. You can check them out below and understand why I’m so excited about this game.
