A sneak peek at Black Desert's Lore
Even if some of us managed to take part in the Black Desert Closed Beta tests we were kind of blindfolded due to the language barrier. With some help we managed to detail the most important features from each CBT, but one thing was always left untouched.
Today, thanks to Afkalmighty, we can take a sneak peek at Black Desert Lore. The first part that was translated talks about the black plague that affected Calpheon and other starting zones in Year 235 after the Elion Calendar.
Below you will find a sample of the translated story, but you definitely need to check the entire article on the source page.

If you are waiting for more official news and updates regarding Black Desert you should keep an eye on E3 Expo which will take place in Los Angeles from June 10 to June 12, 2014 as Pearl Abyss confirmed that they are going to attend it.
