Black Desert Online Celebrates 10 Million Players; Xbox One Beta Coming in Early November
Black Desert Online has now surpassed 10 million players globally on PC. Pearl Abyss announced this today via press release while adding that there will be several celebratory events in-game.
The event “Celebrating Millions” entails three events that will start after this week’s maintenance and will run for three consecutive weeks. The first “Choice of 10 Million” event will reward players with the newly added Cliff’s Weapons which can be exchanged into Gold Bars depending on the level of enhancement. More events of great benefits will follow in the upcoming weeks.
Aside from the playable event, players can also look forward to special login rewards such as Shakatu’s Luxury Box, Artisan’s Memory (x5), and Advice of Valks (+50).
Players who are new to Black Desert Online will be happy to learn that the game is still 50% off, regardless of game package up until the 1st of November, 17:00 UTC.
Pearl Abyss is also about to self-publish Black Desert on Microsoft's Xbox One console, albeit with a significant delay over the original early 2018 launch window. During last weekend's TwitchCon 2018, the development studio revealed that the Open Beta is coming on November 8th.
No cash shop will be in the beta and no progress will carry over to the full release. Content-wise, during the Black Desert Xbox beta, players will have the option to pick between the following classes: Berserker, Ranger, Sorceress, Warrior, Witch and Wizard. An Xbox Live Gold subscription will be required to play.
