Pearl Abyss Talked About Black Desert Combating System
Black Desert is going to be the first title of Pearl Abyss which was founded in September 2010. In a recent interview with mmorpg, Pearl Abyss talked about many aspects which make Black Desert a different game from other MMOs.
Black Desert producer Daeil Kim revealed that he was a fan of 2D based fighting games, but it is hard to bring fighting action of those games to Black Desert. However, it is possible to use WASD keys, mouse controls or combination of both. "Unlike other MMORPGs, we have attempted to facilitate greater variety in action combat sequences beyond simply pressing number keys" Daeil Kim said.
In action games, the timing of casting a skill and a monster's reaction are very important. They are going to develop Black Desert into an action game that players must control their characters purposefully and monsters can have more complex reaction.
In Black Desert's second trailer, you will see the horse riding and mounted combat scene. Daeil Kim expects that players will enjoy the combat as well as mount breeding. Check out the trailer below for more details.
Black Desert is not an RvR oriented game. Even there are the Republic of Calpheon and the Kingdom of Valencia, players won't have to choose which side to join.
Pearl Abyss has been contacted by many western publishers. They think that their potential western partners will be those who are reputable in marketing, customer service, etc. Black Desert's first CBT in Korea is scheduled soon. After CBT in Korea, Pearl Abyss will begin looking for a western partner.
