After nearly a month of delays, it looks like Daum Games has finally got the Valencia Part One expansion in a playable state.
The newest update for Black Desert Online is expected to launch sometime tomorrow, June 29, after technical delays stopped the Valencia Part One expansion from going live on its scheduled June 1 date. The reasoning was that the expansion and the game’s current client build were not compatible with each other. Furthermore, Daum Games said that it was looking to use this time to improve security features by targeting bots and unauthorized third-party programs.
Unfortunately, the highly anticipated Castle Siege and Node warfare PvP modes will not be implemented in this patch. These were recently tested by the Black Desert Online community, and Daum plans to fix any problems before making them a permanent part of the game. There will, however, be a second Castle Siege and Node warfare test in the near future.
Addition features of Valencia Part One:
- +500 new quests
- New areas to explore
- Upgraded enchantment system (+20)
- Guild housing
- New mounts to ride (Camel and Elephant)
- Whale hunting
This delay has been weighing heavily on the Black Desert Online community, as it was expected at the beginning of this month. It’s likely that issues with Valencia are also pushing back other content updates including the implementation of new classes. Many players have been predicting the Ninja’s release with this update, but Daum confirmed today that it won’t be available yet.
