After teasing the Black Desert Online Dark Knight class earlier this month, the developers are now gearing up to finally release the new playable class in the game.
The official twitter channel of the game teased a silhouette of the Black Desert Online Dark Knight class alongside information regarding today’s scheduled maintenance.
Although it should be noted that while there is a maintenance for the game today, the Dark Knight class itself won’t be available to play in Black Desert Online until March. Instead, the maintenance will kickstart the pre-launch event for the class.
Being the 13th playable class in the new and pretty popular MMO from Kakao Games, the Dark Knight will be getting a Pre-creation event which will start today after the server maintenance is complete.
Alongside the event, Dark Knight Character Slot Expansion Coupon will also be added in Black Desert Online to celebrate the upcoming release of the playable class.
The weekly maintenance is currently underway on the EU servers and will complete after four hours, at 2PM CET. The full patch notes of all the new additions to the game alongside various improvements and fixes will be available on the official forums after the maintenance.
Despite being an extremely grindy MMO, which is somewhat of a trademark of Korean MMORPGs, Black Desert Online managed to take the western market by storm thanks to its beautiful visuals, sandbox gameplay, parkour system and an action oriented combat.
The game even managed to cross 1 Million players mark shortly after its launch and due to its growing popularity, even though it is banned in a lot of regions of the world, will be getting a console release as well.
MMOs releasing on consoles is a pretty big deal but thanks to the game’s focus on action and combo based combat instead of tons of spells slotted in action bars, Black Desert Online seems a right fit to be released on both PS4 and Xbox One.
