Black Desert Online, Daum Games' upcoming multiplayer role-playing game, is launching its final closed beta next month, the developer announced. To tide players over until its Feb. 18 release, however, the studio has launched the game's character creation mode as a free, standalone download. You can take a look at it above.
The character creation mode is available now and allows you to generate your own playable character. Your creation can be used when the beta fully launches, as well as be ported over to the full game. A release date for the full Black Desert Online has yet to be confirmed for North American release beyond a 2016 launch window, however.
Black Desert Online has been available in its homeland of Korea since December 2014, following a four-year development period. A Western release was confirmed shortly before its Korean launch.
While it's a free-to-play MMO in the game's home market, Western gamers must purchase the Windows PC title in order to play. It's currently up for pre-order, with its most basic edition costing $29.99.
We most recently tested Black Desert Online's robust character creator in the latest episode of Monster Factory, in which the McElroy brothers remarked upon its sheer level of precision. You can check that out below.
