Black Desert Online [JP] - Sneak peak at mounted combat in game.

#1

Black Desert developed by the Korean game company Pearl Abyss is currently in second closed beta in Korea. The Russian and Japanese versions have also been confirmed and this game will be published by GameOn in Japan. We still have no updates on the western publisher of this game.

The Japanese publisher GameOn just released a debut Black Desert trailer today. You might have already watched most of the clips in the trailer except for the impressive mounted combat part started from 1:37 and you are also able to get a sneak peek at the elephant used in Castle Siege and Tamer and Wizard combat after 3:00. Check it out below.

Is that a 360 controller X button prompt I see? Is this game gonna support controllers? I would love to play it on my TV. Also, I am blown away by the character creation stuff in this game every time I see it.

Yes, we have interest in converting Black Desert into console platform.
In addition, we had got already an initial meeting with Sony and MS.
However, it is very early to mention the possibility of conversion at this stage, because we are carefully study the technical and business issue.

To summarize, we are very initial study phase at this time.
To answer your question - This game also provides controller support.

I'm so hyped for this game yet I know that the chance of me being burned by an incredibly boring MMO are so ridiculously high.

....I SHALL GET HYPED AND BE ILL PREPARED FOR THE HARD FALL THAT COMES AFTER!

Tbh, there wasn't anything new in that trailer. It was various old footage put together, they should show off raw gameplay footage of mounted combat PvP.

Mounted combat huh

So two years from now, we'll get to experience it...
Two years? They just announced that the Russians would get to play the game much earlier than the west, and the publisher isn't even announced yet.

I'd guess three, at least, just for the beta.

Why are people thinking an English release will take many years? With most Korean MMOs, it looks like an English release isn't ever more than a year away. I know Blade & Soul is taking ages, but that seems to be an exception to the rule.
