Pearl Abyss and Kakao Games announced today that Black Desert Online will showcase its brand new Archer class for the very first time at this year’s TwitchCon which is being held at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center. The event takes place between the 26th and 28th of October. I believe this is the first time this new class will be showcased, even ahead of South Korea! The Official Black Desert Online Guild 3v3 Tournament Final will also take place, where finalists from North America and Europe battle for a $10,000 grand prize!
Players will also be able to experience the brand new Drieghan expansion which is set to launch on November 14. All of this brand new content will be playable on 46 high-end Alienware Aurora PCs at the Black Desert Online Booth (#808). Other content will include exclusive developer interviews, cosplay panels and also exclusive item giveaways for everyone who is watching the live stream on Black Desert Online’s official Twitch channel.
About the new Archer class
The Archer, previously coined as the male ranger, was a much requested class by the Black Desert Online community worldwide. As guardian of the Netherworld, the Archer uses his crossbow for his stylish ranged attack and skill combos. The Archer also uses various different magic skills that assist him in combat by upsetting the opponents’ balance, and wreaking havoc upon whoever stands in his way by bombarding arrows with his crossbow from afar. The Archer is never flustered nor disoriented, even when surrounded by countless enemies as he can escape from them without breaking a sweat.
Drieghan, also known as the land of dragons and the ancestral home of dwarves, is a huge mountainous area offering new story content, quests and challenges. Players can travel to Duvencrune, the capital of Drieghan, which shows a variety of environments of an alpine region. New monster areas such as ‘Sherekhan’s Grave, ‘Blood Wolf Town’, ‘Tshira Ruins’ will be released as well as the new dragon world boss, Garmoth, the Crimson Dragon.
Players can also look forward to the Dragon Slayer, a brand new powerful craftable weapon which nearly matches the “Dandelion” weapon. This brand new update slated for a November 14 release will feature a large mountainous area, over 300 challenging quests, fresh nodes to conquer and a new menacing dragon world boss known as Garmoth.
