Black Desert is a third-person action game by Korean developer Pearl Abyss. The title can be classified as a sandbox-oriented massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) which offers players unprecedented freedom. You need to love exploration and be able to engage challenging enemies in a heartbeat if you want to succeed.
A few days ago, Black Desert Online's Executive Producer Jae-Hee Kim reveals upcoming plans for the popular MMORPG. One of the most spectacular announcements made was the "Shadow Arena," a new battle royale mode. In Shadow Arena, every player starts as a "Black Spirit" and needs to find a fallen adventurer and possess her. By destroying supply crates and defeating computer-controlled enemies, players can accumulate equipment and skills. When everyone is killed except for one, the match ends. According to Pearl Abyss, up to fifty players are supported and the mode should launch soon. It's unclear when it'll make its way to the Xbox One version.
At E3 2017, Microsoft announced that the game would be launching on Xbox One in 2018. While we still don't have a concrete release date, the developer did provide some details about the console version.
Black Desert is supposedly targeting native 4K resolution on Xbox One X. Since Black Desert appears to be a graphically-intensive experience, hopefully Pearl Abyss will utilize a dynamic rendering solution which automatically lowers the resolution when it senses a dip in performance. However, maybe the team will come up with another way to get better results in populated areas.
