Black Desert Online’s Shadow Arena 50-man Battle Royale Mode Debuts Today
South Korean developer Pearl Abyss announced the debut of Shadow Arena, a new Battle Royale mode for Black Desert Online, today in Early Access mode.
Any player who owns Black Desert Online or has access to the seven-day trial can participate in the tests. For the time being, Shadow Arena will have limited capacity and be only available at certain times during the day.
Black Desert is coming soon to the Xbox One, though no announcement was made yet regarding the addition of the Shadow Arena mode on the console.
About the Shadow Arena
Shadow Arena is a new mode that pits up to 50 players against each other in a struggle for survival. Gather supplies and outwit your opponents to become the last person standing. Players will start the match as a ‘Black Spirit’, a small flying specter that can then possess the bodies of one of the playable classes in Black Desert Online.
For the Early Access version, the Warrior, Sorceress, Berserker, Tamer, Valkyrie, Wizard, Witch, Dark Knight and Mystic will be available allowing participants to pick from nine different playstyles.
By roaming the arena after finding their preferred class, players can gather skills, weapons, armor, accessories and special items such as flares, potions, traps and more. It will be essential for victory that players strategically acquire their skills and items to deal with the opposition.
So, what kind of rewards can you obtain from the Shadow Arena: Battle Royale?
You can exchange the gear you obtained through the match with Silver, or you can obtain special Black Rocks depending on your survival standings within the match.
Black Rocks can be used to obtain Black Stone, Concentrated Magical Black Stone, or Memory Fragment.
