2. After logging in, purchase a game package through the Purchase Package button or by going to the Shop.

With the revamped website and brand-new launcher, Black Desert takes its first steps while published by Pearl Abyss.

These changes are the first of many that we hope will revitalize your experience of playing Black Desert.

Thank you for your patience as we work to provide this unique, new experience for you!


In addition, we will be exploring new ways for our Adventurers to enjoy Black Desert through various other platforms that can expand upon and improve the experience.

We aim to provide a stable Black Desert experience for all Adventurers, no matter where they are located.


We humbly ask for your support and encouragement as we embark on this grand journey together under Pearl Abyss self-publishing!


Stay tuned next week for Part Two of “Black Desert: How Will It Change?” on Wednesday, February 3, 2021.
