OP  7/24/14 7:45:46 AM#1

2P.com is reporting that the publishers for both the North American and European versions of Black Desert Online have been revealed. According to the site, Daum Communications will be publishing the game in both regions. Daum is also the Korean publisher of BDO. Black Desert Online will be published by Gamenet.ru in the Russian Federation.

The Korea-based company, Daum, should not be new to people who have been keeping up with black desert news (since they have hosted two closed beta events of Black Desert Korea), but for those who don't know Daum is a web portal in South Korea, like Naver and Nate. Daum offers all sorts of services to its "netizens" (web users) like a popular free web-based e-mail, messaging service, forums, shopping and news. Daum officially marched into the game publishing industry in 2011 and is also the publisher of many online games in Korea including PlanetSide 2 and Winning Putt.

Is this the first publishing venture for Daum Communications in the Western market ? Should be interesting to watch how this unfolds, the Korean and western players are quite different I hear...

its not that bad . they could have gone with nexon or ncsoft . ncsoft cant run servers well and nexon would have monetized things all to hell and maybe added tokens that you pay for to play the game

 

daum having handled the korean games so far means we should get their version so less cash grab . pearl abyss was working on a english translation themselves a while back so it might not be a very long wait but if it went to some one else *cough* nexon *cough* they might have decided to add more tracking to mob attacks and boost mob damage and add some cash items that didnt exist so you would need to pay if you wanted to play and that takes time

I don't care who the publisher is. This is clearly progress and I'm looking forward to a US relase.

I understand that many people just want to play - but having a western publisher is a lot more than players realize. It's not just translation, it's also having an established operations team, Datacenter, billing etc... Having a solid infrastructure to host a MMO is just as important as the game itself - it's what separates Blizzard, SoE, NCsoft, Trion etc... from the rest.

Don't underestimate the Koreans. They may just blow everyone out of the water and set a new benchmark for excellence. It's amazing how much is coming out of this small country. From Samsung to Hyundai to Ncsoft, that place is really taking off. I am personally really interested to see what they can do.

If they do an amazing job, it will put pressure on north American publishers to step up their game (which most need to; let's be honest). If they fail hard, then it could potentially drive more Asian games to publish through north American companies. As a gamer, I see this as a win-win.

I hope Daum pulls it off, it's going to be pretty hard.

For example currently to log into BD in Korea you have to go through IE, yes a browser, to authenticate.

They will have to change a lot of systems that western players take for granted.

Whats the average time span between publisher announcement till release?

 

And btw, I don't care if it's a new korean publisher, as long as it isn't mothereffing Gameforge for EU. Same publisher for all regions could mean, that we would get all updates/patches at the same time the koreans get em.

I'm sure they will make an English site (along with other languages) when the time comes.

Kind of disappointing but I can't think of any company that would be willing to take on BD at the moment in NA/EU. Everyone is waiting to see if Trion can pull off AA to see if it's worth it to bother with Korean MMO's anymore I think.

If you mention rose tinted glasses, you better be referring to Mitch Hedberg.

dont get me wrong but i have my fingers crossed on this one too just like i had AA

RED: honestly its not up to trion they have their hands tied they cant change or add a bunch of stuff because its not theirs..thats why its "just another korean mmo" if they could do better they would no doubt..and i hope that BD wont fall to the same fate

True, it's not really up to Trion. Poor choice of words on my part.

So funny to read that people are anti-Korean publisher, or any publisher that isn't NA/EU. What track record of awesomeness does NA/EU have? Name a game where there has been a publisher where we all went, "WOW, THANKS <insert publisher>"

 

At least with a Korean publisher they might keep the game like it is in Korea, which NORMALLY, is the best iteration of the game. NA/EU always has ridiculous needs that essentially ruin games... and then the NA/EU will complain about those changes they whined for in the first place.

Why on earth would BD be any different to AA when it comes to game changes ? In either case, the western publisher is not the game developer, so all they can do is make suggestions to the developers. Whether those suggestions are acted on or not is entirely up to the game developer.

 

In the case of AA and BD, Trion may actually have an advantage over the BD publisher, seeing as Trion has extensive experience with the likes and dislikes of western gamers. There's more to a successful localization than just translating game text/voice.
