Black Desert gets another beta this February, character creator still awesome


Gamers of the world awaiting Black Desert Online, rejoice!

Daum Games, the publisher of the hotly anticipated MMO — made famous by its super intense character creation tool — has dropped not just one, but two huge bombshells!

First, it was announced that a second round of beta testing has been set in February for the Western version of the MMO. According to Daum, this beta test would be the final closed test for the game. The beta is automatically available to everyone who pre-ordered the Explorer’s or Conqueror’s packages. Other interested playesr may apply for a code come February.

The start and end dates for the test, as well as information on changes made between the first and upcoming beta tests, are due to be revealed in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, to pique interest, Daum has also released a standalone version of the game’s much-discussed (and acclaimed) character creator.

The game’s character creation system has been praised for its robustness, and breadth of appearance customization options that allow the player to micro-manage almost every tiny detail on their character’s person. In its current form, the standalone character creator will allow the player to create a character that they can then import into the upcoming beta version and the final game.
