Black Desert Korea adding IP block in March

black desert female blader 1

As you’re probably aware, Black Desert Online is launching in North America and Europe in March 3, 2016 as a buy-to-play game. This means that some players may be interested in keeping playing in the Korean version, as it wasn’t IP blocked… so far. Daum Games has announced that when the western version releases, the Korean version of BDO will IP block certain foreign IPs/regions.

While a “seamless gaming experience for global users” is stated as the reason for this decision, we’re fairly confident that it had to do with pointing players of specific regions to their respective Black Desert version.

    Has it been confirmed yet if the western b2p version has p2w elements?

    This is a deciding factor for me as I’m planning on shelling out.

      You should go check it out in the blackdesertonline official forum there is a post in there about the cash shop posted by the CM’s . but fyi there is nothing p2w in their cash shop.. the p2w items are giving to every player as a loyalty token for loging in to the game..
