Amsterdam, The Netherlands – 8th of May – As previously announced on the content roadmap last month, Kakao Games and Pearl Abyss are proud to announce the new Underwater Ruins expansion that will be added to Black Desert Online on the 22nd of May. Only the most seasoned adventurers will be able to venture to these new water-themed locations to face off against some of the fiercest enemies in the game.
Underwater Ruins Expansion, Pearl Abyss
Players will have to travel by boat and dive into the ocean to enter the two adventuring locations. There are the Protty Cave and the Sycraia Ruins, as well as Sycrid, a brand new field boss in Black Desert Online. Once the location has been reached, players do not have to swim during combat and/or exploration.
The Protty Cave, suitable for skilled adventurers, will have players descend into dank caverns only lit by bioluminescent plants and creatures to face-off against a mysterious new race of amphibian creatures.
The Sycraia Ruins, on the other hand, has players explore long-deserted ruins that are still defended by ancient constructs that will fiercely defend the treasures that lie within. The Sycraia Ruins can be entered by using a special artifact that can be acquired throughout the Underwater Ruins.
Featuring brand new enemy types and powerful items for players to acquire, the Underwater Ruins also adds a new summonable boss named Sycrid. This boss will require a small group of players to work together to be able to overcome him. Defeating him gives players a chance to acquire the highly desirable Tungrad Ring, the strongest ring in the game.
This week’s maintenance also sees the addition of the Great Marni’s Stone, a feature that rewards players with rare items for killing monsters that correspond with the type of their Great Marni’s stone.
Additionally, players can sink their teeth into the ‘Hands of Gold Returns’ event which can net players handsome rewards. More information on how to obtain these items is available on the dedicated event page. The daily attendance rewards have also been revamped with a completely new golden theme. Players can collect up to 200 million Silver by collecting gold items by logging in every day.
