Black Desert Online recently received a new martial arts-based class named the Striker, and with today’s update Kakao Games released the awakening for the class.

Awakenings are a new weapon for the endgame that unlocks a fully new skillset for each class, used to complement its weaknesses.

To show off the new feature, the publisher also released a rather spectacular trailer, which you can see below.

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. Earlier this year we also got the confirmation that it will be released for the PS4 family of consoles as well, even if no clue has been provided on how long it’ll take for that to happen.

If you want to see more of the Striker, you can check out the original trailer that revealed his spiffy moves, and if you’d like to learn more about the game, you can read our recent interview with the developers at Pearl Abyss.
