New Crimson Desert info details its origins, solo and MMORPG content

New Crimson Desert info




Pearl Abyss has revealed some new Crimson Desert info, shedding some light on the MMORPG that began as a prequel to Black Desert, but ended up becoming its own thing. The Crimson Desert release date is likely planned for 2021, with a PC and console beta coming during 2020. Cross-play is supported, according to a recent interview.

Crimson Desert was supposed to tell  the history of Black Desert's past, but as new locations and characters were added, it turned into its own IP. The subtitle “A Saga Written in Blood” hints at the events that are coming, with a lot of blood to spill. It has all the makings of a playable version of Game of Thrones, hopefully with mature and developed characters that don't take a turn for the obvious or far-fetched during the later parts of the series… er, I mean, game.




According to the recently unearthed Crimson Desert info, a single-player campaign will make you guide your character and his team of rugged mercenaries through many engaging and surely violent quests. However, Crimson Desert also offers everything that makes a full-fledged MMORPG, with teammates by your side, trading, crafting, exploration, and more. You'll find many of the systems that make Black Desert Online in this new game.

Developed using Pearl Abyss' new proprietary engine, Crimson Desert looks stunning, as the new images revealed at the official website will show you. Read on to learn more on the new Crimson Desert info.
