Greetings Adventurers!

We are happy to announce that the recently revealed Lahn class will be introduced to Black Desert Online on May 23 and the pre-creation will be available on May 16th!

Lahn is a master of martial arts who trained in a dynasty of the far east. Her story begins by becoming a priestess but falls to an evil scheme, which she tragically loses her lover in the battlefield. Grieved by her loss, she realizes that strength is the only way to achieve her ideals.

This is a crescent-moon shaped blade on the end of a long piece of cloth. She throws and swings her weapon with immaculate grace and completes her deadly arsenal with the Noble Sword, a short blade that is her...

As we march towards the May release of Bless Online on Steam, many of you asked how the Steam version of Bless Online is going to be different from its past or currently available releases. We definitely understand where the questions are coming from. We have not shared as much as we should have in explaining how the game will be different from what you see in Korea or Japan servers. That’s why we decided to focus this blog on describing some of the key changes we are bringing to the Steam release.

While we’ve been developing Bless Online for a long time, our focus on making Bless Online a great game has never wavered. We also have an amazing and active community that has not given up on us but continue to support us and give constructive feedback. One of the primary goals for the Steam release is to make sure to address some of the key concerns that have been repeatedly raised by the community. Now, let’s explore what some of those changes are.

Our newest major update, Legends Return, a.k.a. Update 4.5, is launching on the very fitting day of April 5, 2018.

Today, we talk about what awaits you in the next update, and the new Fresh Start Progression Servers coming with it.

A New Style of Fresh Start

For those of you who keep a close eye on the Korean servers, you may have heard about their new progression server: Orchidna. This style of Fresh Start server opens up with a classic launch day ArcheAge experience: level 50 cap, Magnificent level gear, and a focus on the mainland continents. Slowly, over the coming months, this server will evolve with unlocked crafting tiers, raid bosses,...
