Black Desert Online beta begins tomorrow, watch the cinematic trailer now

Black Desert Online

Grand-scale MMORPG Black Desert Online goes into closed beta on February 18th, in preparation for its big launch in March. There’s been a lot of talk about the game, especially about its gorgeous visuals and deep character creator, but if you’ve missed out on the fuss then take a look at the cinematic trailer to get up to speed. 

Are you in love with MMOs? Black Desert Online is one of eight superb up-and-coming MMORPGs out this year

The trailer is narrated by Tay Zonday, who you may be familiar with if you hang out on the YouTubes. He’s a big deal over there, apparently.

If those few minutes of action grab your interest, then a pre-order of either the Explorer’s or Conqueror’s edition of the game will guarantee you access to the closed beta.

The closed beta will involve special in-game events. The Bait Master Tour will see you catch a rare Beltfish and earn a special title, as well as try out a new triathlon challenge. Rewards for both events will be added to your account, so they will be available in the full version of Black Desert Online when it launches next month.

If you’re part of the closed beta, you can play from February 18 at 8am UTC until February 22.
