You’ve got Q’s. The devs of the upcoming Black Desert Mobile have A’s. Yep, it’s a Black Desert Mobile Q&A session, where the devs have collected some question from interested players and provided some insight on things like character skills, guilds and other systems.
Black Desert Mobile players will get to pick either a Giant, Warrior, Valkyrie, Ranger or Witch to start the game and their skills will be very similar to those on the PC version…except when they’re not. The devs have stated there will be some new skills or existing skills that are applied differently for the mobile version, including a Black Spirit skill exclusive to the title.
Guilds in Black Desert Mobile will be about 30 people at maximum, with content such as Guild Raids and a guild base available at launch. Other guild-related activities such as Node and Siege Wars will be added in later updates.
As far as the kind of device needed to play the game, the devs state that phones similar in spec to a Galaxy S5 should be able to run Black Desert Mobile, but they do bookend by saying that optimizations are still being worked out.
The Q&A session also goes over the weight system, family name details, character creation and equipment enhancement. You can read the full Q&A on Gamasutra for more.
BDO Mobile is planned to release globally sometime in 2018, with a Korean launch planned to go live first.
Sounds like the mobile edition of BDO is going to be a pretty beefy piece of mobile MMO gaming. Of course, we’re still waiting to learn a bit more about specs for this one as well as deeper dives into the game’s systems, but we’re sure to receive those details over the course of this year.
