Black Desert Online’s name reservation page has opened to all who have pre-ordered the game. If you’re interested and haven’t pre-ordered, you’ll have until February 26 to “benefit from the pre-order perks.” You’ll want to act fast—popular names will go quick. The reservation page is located on the Black Desert Online site.
Pre-ordering either the Conqueror’s or Explorer’s package will grant beta access, the second of which will run from February 18 to February 22.
Black Desert Online was announced for western audiences in October of last year, and is said to be a little different than its Russian and Korean counterparts. The MMORPG by developer Pearl Abyss will not be free-to-pay, but instead, will release as a “buy-to-play” game, similar to Guild Wars 2. Pearl Abyss also noted game balance in the western edition will be tweaked, along with player progression.
