Kakao Games and Pearl Abyss have announced that in collaboration with Kentaru Muira (Studio Gaga) they are bringing the world of hit-anime Berserk to Black Desert Online. From November 20 until December 6, adventurers can experience the grim fantasy of Berserk via new quests, bosses and items.
New outfits, skins, questline, and bosses inspired by the hit-manga ‘Berserk’ are now available to players!
Players can immediately start a questline that will see them traversing the world of Black Desert Online on Berserk themed quests. The quest-line culminates in a confrontation with a truly legendary foe, the fierce demon Nosferatu Zodd.
Players will face ‘Zodd’ near the Hexe Marie Sanctuary, an eerie graveyard overrun with all manner of undead creatures. It seems that players might be able to find common cause with an especially legendary knight…
In addition to the questline and bosses, new outfits and skins for the fairy companion have been added to the Pearl Shop, allowing adventurers to evoke the iconic ‘Berserker Armor’ for male classes. For players that are looking for something more elegant, a new outfit styled after Griffith, Guts’ archnemesis, will be available for the female character classes. There’s also a new skin for the player’s fairy character that gives them a look inspired by Puck, the trusty companion of Guts, from the popular anime Berserk.
The Berserk crossover event will available for a limited time only, for more information check out the special information page on the Black Desert Online website. If you are not playing Black Desert Online yet, you can start a free trial that will give you access to the game and the Berserk event for seven days.
