The annual Heidel Ball is upon us in Black Desert, and you’re all invited. Offering a roadmap for Black Desert in 2021, the ostentatious trailer is pretty obsessed with ‘waves’. Which, given the name of the new class they will be revealing, kind of makes sense.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, this year’s event will be taking place entirely online. Things will be kicking off this Saturday 19th June via Black Desert’s official YouTube and Twitch channel. And, as far as parties go, it’s a pretty early one starting at 09:00 BST or 01:00 PDT. But at least that gives the rest of the day to celebrate what are sure to be some exciting announcements.

Speaking of which, a brand new class is set to be introduced whose name appears in the dramatic trailer below.

The blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment shows the ‘Corsair’. If you’re clued up on your history then you know implies that this next class is a swashbuckling privateer. AKA, a pirate. Which certainly floats our boat. We’d have to wait until Saturday for details - but the nautical clues couldn’t be more obvious if we were slapped in the face with a wet fish.

Either way, the ‘Into the Waves’ subtitle and fixation on water has us wondering if it’s just the Corsair that we have to look forward to. The 2021 roadmap section of the Heidel Ball, starting at 09:30 BST, promises the new class reveal, new merchandise, information regarding the upcoming Atoraxxion co-op dungeon and ‘much, much more’. So we’ll see what treasures lie in wait.

Following the 2021 roadmap section is a chance for viewers to plunder some booty of their own. The Live Quiz Show starting at 10:00 BST will offer players the chance to win an Airpod Pro or iPad Pro 12.9. Plus, some in-game rewards such as Enchanted Scrolls, 2,000 loyalty points, and an Enhancement Kit can be earned via Twitch Drops.
