Free Trial Pass


This is a pass that allows you to enjoy Black Desert for free without purchasing a package for a set period of time. However, you must get the “Permanent Game Pass” or purchase a package to continue enjoying Black Desert after the Free Trial period ends.

* Any previous Free Trial Pass records will be reset at the start of this event, so you can still get a Free Trial Pass even if you’ve previously used one before as long as you’re eligible for the event. So, don’t worry about missing out!


Permanent Game Pass


This is a coupon that allows you to permanently enjoy Black Desert for free without purchasing a package. If your account fulfills the event requirements, you’ll receive the permanent game pass during the next following maintenance.

* You can still purchase packages even if you have a Permanent Game Pass.
