Black Desert Devs Announce a New Battle Royale Mode
Over the past weekend, the Black Desert Online development team announced that it is working on a new battle royale survival mode for the game. Each of the mode's 50 players begin the fight as a Black Spirit, then must work to find a "fallen adventurer and possess it". From there, it's off to destruction of nearby crates and defeating mobs to gather up materials, equipment and abilities. As is the norm for battle royale games, the last player standing is declared the winner.
Currently, up to 50 players are supported and the Shadow Arena is planned to be updated to the South Korean service this Winter. A western release will follow later allowing time for localization and polish.
