Black Desert South American Version Is Quite Expensive to Play
New information about the South American version of the Black Desert Online was revealed by RedFox Games, the publisher who will distribute the game for South American players and provide Spanish and Portuguese language support.
The pre-order for BDO South American version has started and the price is pretty high. There's the Prime pack priced at $35 which includes 1 week early access, closed beta access, 30-day benefits, certain amount of items, tier 5 horse, an exclusive title, and 500 Pearl, etc. The Legendary pack is priced at $85 and it has 2 weeks early access and more item rewards. More details at the official site.
Considering BDO NA/EU version starts at $10 now (with less in-game rewards), $35 for South American version sets a higher bar for players to enter.
And the publisher also revealed the the server will be located in Miami, USA, which was unexpected to the Brazilian community. But RedFox said the decision was made after a test.
