Black Desert Online Celebrates One Year With a Look Back


Here's to another year of questing. Black Desert Online takes a trip down memory lane as it celebrates one year anniversary.

This week the Dark Knight class became playable. Dark Knights use dark magic attacks and a powerful two-handed sword. This is just one of the major content updates Black Desert Online has received during it's first year.

Black Desert Online is the most refreshingly unique MMO around. Introducing many new game mechanics and ways to play in a world that’s so exquisitely designed, with characters, building, monsters and even the weather all working together to make the best looking MMO to have ever been released, BDO is only really let down by the game’s unwillingness and/or inability to properly explain its mechanics. The post-launch updates have been great so far and there’s no reason to think the game won’t keep improving.
