Pearl Abyss announces the launch of Black Desert: Remastered on August 23. The remaster will feature completely revamped graphics and audio, including the use of physically based rendering, improved post-processing with YEBIS, as well as new, original soundtracks and voiceovers. For those worried about high specs, there's an on/off switch in the game so all Adventurers can get in on the lifelike experience. Check out the 4K trailer here.
To celebrate the launch, developer Pearl Abyss is offering Adventurers two weeks of free access to the game for the first time ever. Adventurers can access Black Desert: Remastered for free from 10:00 a.m. (GMT +8) on August 23 to 6:00 a.m. (GMT +8) on September 5.
Pearl Abyss COO James Heo stated, "We're offering free access to make sure everyone gets a chance to experience the remaster. Black Desert: Remastered definitely sets new standards for MMORPG graphics and audio, so I hope lots of Adventurers will take advantage of the free access period."
In addition, all Adventurers that log in to the game during the first week of the release will receive a Tier 7 Horse Emblem and a Golden Horse Gear Set. There is also an event for new and returning Adventurers, including a 7-day Value Pack and other cash items. Find more information about the updates and events here.
