Black Desert Online has been updated and players logging in will find mysterious Dark Rifts appearing throughout the game world. The rifts appear randomly and spawn powerful boss monsters "that have been consumed by the elusive Black Spirit". In a unique twist, these monsters can only be taken on by a single player and are said to "yield wonderful rewards if a player is successful defeating the foe".
As the Dark Rifts spawn, a marker will appear on the location finder to make sure that as many players as possible can take part.
Additionally, Bartali’s Adventure Log was added last Friday. This exciting new feature presents the player with an adventure log that continually updates with new quests, challenges, and errands. Adventurers can receive bonus stats and rewards that apply to their entire roster of characters if they are able to complete the challenges in Bartali's Adventure log. This feature is available from level 51, once players complete the main quests of the Calpheon region.
