During a live stream even held late yesterday, Pearl Abyss showed off the "remastered" version of Black Desert Online. The video was shown during a special showcase in Korea and is packed with sights and sounds showing off the new look. Viewers will notice a new UI, enhanced graphics, improvements to the story, a new hunting mode, a retooled Marketplace and much more.
The New Class - Male Ranger The new class regards none other than a Male Ranger, a class that has gained the attention of many of our users in Korea but overseas as well. Developments for the new class are progressing smoothly and the Male Ranger is set for release during winter this year. The Male Ranger will use a weapon in the form of a crossbow and will equip magic gloves as its sub-weapon. Although the Male Ranger Class will have a slower attack speed than the existing Ranger Class, you will find that they are more than capable of delivering some hefty attacks.
