Today Black Desert Online received an update, bringing another awakening weapon into the fray, the Valkyrie’s.
Valkyria Chronicles fans will be familiar with the setup, giving the class a lance and shield combination, which matches the weapons wielded by Selvaria and company.
Incidentally, it wouldn’t be surprising if the homage was intentional. Pearl Abyss included several nods to anime, comics and more in their awakening weapons and armor, like the Berserker armor that makes our friendly neighborhood giants look a lot like Ironman, or the Ninja awakening that appears to be a callback to One Piece‘s Zoro.
You can check the trailer out below.
