Second Major Update Hits Black Desert on PlayStation 4



MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. – September 25, 2019 – Pearl Abyss today announced that Black Desert’s second major content update is available on PlayStation®4 as a free download. Explore the desert region of Valencia and encounter a new world boss, or play as the Lahn and Ninja character classes and experience a significant power boost with the Awakening feature. 

Watch the Awakening trailer here:

Awakening is a feature that permanently boosts a character’s combat prowess and unlocks new skills and weapons for use on the battlefield. All ten character classes have been imbued with the ability to be Awakened, allowing adventurers to realize their true power with unique play styles. 

To Awaken a character, adventurers must first reach Level 56 and accept a unique quest provided by their Black Spirit. Once completed, they will receive a mythical weapon native to their character’s history that will deliver incredible damage to enemies. Find information on Awakened states and weapons for all character classes here.

Two new fan-favorite character classes, Lahn and Ninja, bring a high-level of agility and precision to Black Desert, as seen in their reveal trailer. Each character is built with different skills and abilities to master on the battlefield:

  • Lahn: Lahn is extremely agile, with the unprecedented ability to leap and glide through the air over long distances. Combined with the flexibility of her Crescent Pendulum, whether she’s facing enemies head on or raining death from above, she is truly a force to be reckoned with.
  • Ninja: Ninja is a high-skill fighter that excels in agility, using dashes, aerial skills and teleportation to rapidly close the distance to enemies. With the ability to conceal his presence, the Ninja can lie in wait before delivering precise, deadly strikes against his opponent. Armed with stun and debuff techniques, the Ninja can easily gain the upper hand in combat.

The desert kingdom of Valencia brings withering sandstorms and new enemy types for experienced adventurers to conquer – witness what’s to come in today’s region trailer. Beware of the new world boss, Kutum, who emerges from the shifting sands to hunt with lethal precision. To assist in defeating Kutum, Absolute Skills have been added to all classes, enabling devastating and powerful attacks. 

Valencia’s violent past also introduces new gameplay elements. Adventurers who kill another player within the region will receive a villain mark regardless of their current Karma, and will be treated as a hostile by other players. Once killed, murderers will be sent to Pila Ku Prison to serve out their time and gain de-buffs. Chances of escape are slim, but a secret route out of prison may exist…

Other additions and improvements include:

  • Gear and item enhancements: Gear cleansing, accessory melting and new gear enhancement levels have been added due to player request.
  • New items: The kingdom of Valencia introduces region-specific items,more powerful potions, and Dim Magical Armor exchanges.

“We’re proud of the amount of content contained within today’s update that’s available for our growing community on PlayStation 4,” said Robin Jung, Chief Executive Officer of Pearl Abyss. “Given the positive reaction to our first content update, we expect to see a similar response from Adventurers today – especially with the game-changing ability to Awaken all ten character classes.”
