This MMO is supposed to launch in 2013 with beta scheduled for the first half of the year. It look pretty good visually, has housing and is supposed to be a sandbox game. Its a korean MMO so its probably a grinder. Its on my radar but I didnt see a thread here so I made one.

-------------
Note from Tuco:
As always in sandbox games with a heavy PvP focus, PRX is competing in this game in a very serious way. And Rerolled members are welcome to join. We've had some 300 folks from Rerolled join PRX in the last three titles PRX competed in. In GW2 we went 72-4 in WvW, one of the top scores of all time. In ArcheAge we competed on Kyrios for a year before moving on. ESO was fine for two months until the game died.

If this sounds great and you want to really enjoy Black Desert Online for all its worth, then you'll need to go through our recruitment process. Going through the application process is a little antiquated but it's critical that you get access to our forums to see our plans and it's also useful for us to get to know you. Read ourCode of Conductand if you agree to its termsfollow this processto post an application. Note that you are from Rerolled and if your desired name in ArcheAge differs from your forum name, please post it. If I know you I will respond to it vouching for you. If I don't know you I'm unable to vouch for you and your success or failure will determine on the quality of your application, so be specific and verbose in why you are a good fit for PRX.

Also note that people from PRX, including me, are strictly forbidden from engaging in drama shit-talking on public forums like this one. There's going to be some very salty tears from some very sore losers over the next month, but we will only address them ingame. Generally the only public posts we make are recruitment posts like this one. If you have any questions about PRX, please PM Tuco.

The graphics are pretty awesome for an MMO, but it's korean, so pretty safe to assume that it's a grindy snorefest.

Wow, that looks pretty sharp. Plus, it's a sandbox, another positive. Here's hoping it doesn't go complete Korean mode on us.

I don't mind a longer leveling curve tbh. I hope I can't make it to max level in a month. I'm so tired of being done in an MMO in less than a month. I looks good, has housing, and a few other systems so I'll give it a shot. Idk when it's supposed to hit the west. If it launches in Korea this year, it won't hit us until December or 2014.

If those battles they showed at the end don't degenerate into complete slide shows, I will be thoroughly impressed by that alone... Also, it appears that friendly fire is on, for artillery anyways. When those two cannons go off the second one takes out his own front line.

I hope they don't plan on culling the view distance to 2 inches past your toes just so they can maintain everyone's flowing hair and supple skin textures during the big fights.

This actually looks like a Next Gen MMO. I'm intrigued. Will be watching for more news.

Pearl Abyss has released seven minutes of stunning new footage from its Black Desert MMORPG. The clip features an eyeful of the game's unique weather and climate systems (which are specific to each region) as well as plenty of fly-through shots featuring varied environments.

We also get a good look at mounts, combat, and closeups of various classes like the Valkyrie, Wizard, and more. Steparu has posted a brief write-up on the game as well as a couple of additional videos covering housing and the trade map. Combat is described as a hybrid between third-person action titles like TERA and Vindictus and FPS-style systems like those in the Elder Scrolls series

Looks cool as hell... but if Blade & Soul is any indication of how long it takes to fucking localize shit, we won't see this till 2015.

Love the graphics in this game. Hate the Dragon Ball Z combat. Also, their engine was chunking like a mother f'er during that castle siege scene.

But man... those graphics. Lovely!
