Pearl Abyss is working on the Xbox One version of Black Desert Online was able to try it out at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
We played it on Xbox One X, and and it appeared to be targeting 60 FPS. It also looked very impressive, and rather close to the pristine visual fidelity you can find in the PC version. Black Desert Online is certainly one of the most visually impressive MMORPGs currently on the market, if not the best.
Microsoft, that was hosting the demo, allowed us to record thirteen minutes of action gameplay, and you can see it at the bottom of the post. In the video, you can see two of the available classes in action, the ranger and the witch.
If you’re unfamiliar with Black Desert Online, it’s a very enjoyable open-world MMPROG with an absolutely emassive open world that is consistently expanded and extremely fast and stylish action combat. It also comes with what’s probably the best character creator in the whole genre. You can read more about it in our review.
The game is coming for Xbox One with a target release around the summer, while we don’t have precise information about the teased PS4 version. It’s currently available for PC.
