Update History


Music for All (Classes)

Last Update: April 9, 2024

We've expanded upon Black Desert's music system.

First off, with today's update, we've made it so that all classes can now play musical instruments. Whether it be with guildies or friends, or even in front of adventurers you've just become acquainted with, you can enjoy musical content without being restricted by class.

We've also added 5 new instruments to further bolster the musical arsenal available in Black Desert.
These include the "Florchestra Horn," a brass instrument for brilliant, grandiose pieces, the "Florchestra Clarinet," a woodwind instrument for expressing softer tones, and 3 types of "Marni's Electric Guitar," instruments which offer modern sounds with varying effectors.

Just as the "Marnian" comes in several different shapes and tones, Marni's Electric Guitar comes in three different flavors as well - "Silver Wave," for a clear, effector-less sound, "Highway," for a refreshing and high-paced drive effector, and "Hexe Glam," for a heavier, more-filling distortion effector.

From adventurers musically as active as the wandering musician Artina herself, to those who've only recently dipped their toes into Black Desert's musical scene, or just adventurers who are seeking something new in-game, we hope this update provides much fun and entertainment for all.

As we mentioned during the latest updates dev commentary, this musical expansion is part of our overarching goal to provide a more chock-filled adventuring experience in Black Desert. We are busily toiling away in other areas as well, so please look forward to these developments coming soon.

Thank you.
