Black Desert Online

 
Shadow Arena shakes up the battle royale genre with a cast of action heroesNov 15, 2019 - Rock, Paper, ShotgunBlack Desert Online developers Pearl Abyss are in the process of branching out of their MMO roots, having announced a clutch of new games this week. But while they might be working on games as far removed as a shooter and a cutesy monster catch em up, it s Black Desert s battle royale-esque spinoff Shadow Arena that s furthest through development. I got my hands on it at G-Star in Korea, and talked to lead producer Kwang Sam Kim about how it takes as much inspiration from Tekken as it does Playerunknown s Battlegrounds. (more…) Plan 8 is a scrapheap shooter MMO from the co-creator of Counter-StrikeNov 14, 2019 - Rock, Paper, Shotgun Stare at the abyss, they say, and the abyss stares back. Stare at Korean publishers Pearl Abyss, and they’ll announce a handful of new MMORPGs. The company behind Black Desert Online unveiled no less than four new online games at Korean convention G-Star this morning. While two high-fantasy adventures keep well within their wheelhouse, Pearl Abyss also announced two radically contrasting games: a high energy kid-friendly monster catcher named DokeV and Plan 8, a grim n’ bloody shooter from one of the minds behind Counter-Strike.

Imperial Crafting Delivery is a content we hoped would guarantee you a certain profit for cooking or performing alchemy. If the price of your cooking or alchemy product is too low on the Central Market, or if there is already too much of the same product there you could always turn to Imperial Crafting Delivery to make some profit. This is because the amount of Silver you get for each Imperial Cuisine or Imperial Alchemy box is fixed. However, due to the limited type of items that could be sold through Imperial Crafting Delivery there has been an imbalance in the price and availability of certain items. The food and elixirs unavailable for Imperial Crafting Delivery tend to be overlooked while the items that are available for Imperial Crafting Delivery tend to be high in demand, which drives up market prices.
