Pearl Abyss today launched the free-to-play open-world action MMORPG, Black Desert Mobile, now available globally on iOS and Android devices. Black Desert Mobile generated a strong player response with more than 4.5M pre-registrations following successful launches in Korea, Japan, Taiwan and the recent soft-launch in seven additional countries. Features include action-packed combat, a deep character customization system, and high graphical fidelity based on Pearl Abyss’ proprietary engine. The Black Desert franchise has more than 20 million players on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation®4 and mobile platforms.
After choosing from one of five available character classes such as the Warrior, Witch, Ranger, Giant, or Valkyrie, players can take on quests to level up their character and build their camp. In addition to solo play, multiplayer content includes Ramoness, a 3-on-3 PvP mode with an efficient matchmaking system, and the Ancient Ruins co-op boss raid instance. The social experience of working with others is integral to Black Desert Mobile, allowing for collaborative combat in Node War and Conquest War to win unique loot or taking down World Bosses as a team.
Life Skills are another essential element to the player experience, with gathering, fishing, crafting, trading, and dyeing fabrics being vital to gaining resources. Players can build and expand their camps or hire their own workers to gather resources, manage nodes and trade materials and products.
Another special feature is Black Spirit Mode, an extended auto-play element. The mode can be utilized when the game is actively being played as well as when it’s closed, allowing adventurers to gain EXP and Rewards through the use of AI simulation. As a result, players can complete tasks without worrying about data or battery usage.
To celebrate over 4.5 million pre-registrations, Pearl Abyss is rewarding all the Black Desert Mobile adventurers with in-game items and special gifts such as Bunny Bunny Ornament, a Tier 1 Horse Emblem, a Verdon Outfit Chest, and Krenvatz Barding. Items that buff character skills are included, such as Memory Fragments, Skillbooks, Chicken Soup and Pet Foods.
Additionally, Pearl Abyss today launched a special campaign in partnership with Amazon. Until March 17th 2020, Amazon Prime members in any country where Twitch Prime is available can claim Black Desert Mobile rewards. Players can simply log in to their Amazon Prime account and use the event tab to receive in-game buffs, character cosmetics, and items.
Current language support includes English, German, Spanish, French, Russian, Thai, and Indonesian, with Portuguese to be added in 2020.
