A major new update for Black Desert on Xbox One brings with it a new character class and region, available for free.

The new archer class (pictured above) is described as highly mobile. The class is capable of shooting enemies while simultaneously dodging their attacks. The Archer is able to utilize two weapons right from Level 1, including his main Crossbow and the awakening Greatbow, freely switching between the two while utilizing magic such as Meteor Dive and Winged Strike to defeat his enemies. Check out the Archer trailer below.

Additionally, a new region, called Kamasylvia, will be available as well. Described as a lush forest region and birthplace of the elves, it contains, “vast grasslands, dangerous woods and massive temple ruins while battling formidable enemies and terrifying bosses.”

Additionally, you’ll be able to play for free from August 15 - 18 with Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass Ultimate. There will be a discount for all bundles during this period, Standard and Deluxe Editions will be 30% off and the Ultimate Edition will be 50% off. Players that purchase Black Desert during or after this period will be able to continue playing the game with their saved data.
