    Daum Games brings Black Desert Online to North America and Europe
    Highly anticipated action MMORPG will launch in early 2016 as a premium service

    Amsterdam, The Netherlands – October 14, 2015 — Daum Games Europe today announced that it is working with developer Pearl Abyss to bring its successful MMORPG Black Desert Online to North America and Europe. To celebrate, Daum Games launched a teaser site, which went live at 13:37 CET.

    Black Desert Online (BDO) is an open world action MMORPG with next generation visuals and skilled based combat that will rejuvenate the genre. Black Desert Online has the best character customization system of any game that is currently on the market. This feature allows for unprecedented detailed character creation. Its intuitive controls, beautifully designed world and extensive lore will excite both newcomers and veterans of MMO games and action RPG’s in general.

    The upcoming Western release will differ in many ways from the already launched Russian and Korean services, such as the game’s balancing, progression and monetization model.

    “We are putting a lot of effort in the game’s Western localization,” said Daniel Loehr (AKA Belsazar), Project Manager at Daum Games, “We are localizingapproximate 2.5 million words into English, German and French. Black Desert Online’s content and gameplay sytems will be adjusted to accommodateWestern players and our differentiating business model.”

    Black Desert Online will be released in early 2016 and will not be free to play or use a subscription model. Instead players will buy the game once and can purchase vanity and convenience items.
    More information regarding Black Desert Online’s features, lore, mechanics and pricing will be revealed soon. In the meantime players are invited to check out Black Desert Online’s teaser site at BlackDesertOnline.com.

    If not mistaken this game should have been f2p but they took different approach.(something like GW2 )
    Anyway I would always prefer B2P over "F2P" with unbalanced or P2W cashshop.

    Yeah my thoughts exactly. I'd rather just pay one fee up front than have to deal with a pay to win cash shop.
