Pre-order options announced for Black Desert Online
The highly-anticipated MMO Black Desert Online will finally be reaching American shores early next year in the form of a retail product. While in other countries it has been released as a free-to-play model, in North America the game will sell similar to games such as The Elder Scrolls Online. There are currently three pre-order offers available with the cheapest route starting at $29.99. The pre-order offers include:
Traveler’s Package (USD $29.99): Includes a digital version of Black Desert Online, one seven-day guest pass, 24 hour early head start, one appearance change coupon, and more.
Explorer’s Package (USD $49.99): Includes a digital version of Black Desert Online, exclusive access to one Beta test, two seven-day guest passes, 48 hour early head start, one appearance change coupon, a tier three horse, one pet of choice, a unique weapon skin, and more.
Conqueror’s Package (USD $99.99): Includes a digital version of Black Desert Online, exclusive access to both Beta tests, three seven-day guest passes, a massive 96 hour head start, one appearance change coupon, a tier five horse, one pet of choice, a unique weapon skin and costume, 2,500 Pearls (worth $25.00), and more.
Thus far most people know about Black Desert Online from its robust character creator system in addition to its fast paced combat and stunning graphics. It will be interesting to see how the game sells in North America by going the route of a retail product against such a heavy competition of other MMOs. Fortunately, there is no mention of a monthly subscription fee. Visit the game’s official website for further pre-order information.
