Black Desert Remastered Trailer Shows Off New Graphics and Music; Coming Next Week with Free Horse

Black Desert Online will become Black Desert Remastered on August 22nd, and a new trailer shows off what it'll look and sound like.

August 14, 2018

Today Black Desert Online developer Pearl Abyss released a new trailer showcasing Black Desert Remastered, the next evolution of the game that will bring a pretty radical change to the game’s graphics and music.

Not only we get a good look at the new visuals ad we sample the new audio, but we also see tidbits of the work done in order to achieve the results that you’ll see below.

We also get a batch of screenshots and images showing off the new visuals, including comparison of the armor on several character classes before and after the change.

Incidentally, we also hear that the remaster is quite a lot closer to release than many expected. It’ll launch on the PC live servers in Europe and North America on August 22nd.


As an additional bonus, everyone who will log in between August 22nd and August 29th will receive a free Tier 7 horse and a limited edition Golden Lahr Arcien horse armor set. You can see those too in the gallery, alongside a recording of the full event in which the Remastered version was presented.

The game is already available for PC (and you can read my review, even if a ton of content has been added since), and it will go in beta for Xbox One in the fall. You can check out some Xbox One X gameplay, even if this was recorded way before the remaster. We actually don’t know how much of the updated graphics will apply to the Xbox One version of the game just yet.

RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
