Shadow Arena – Character-based battle royale begins Closed Beta next week

[Closed Beta signup] Some players of Black Desert Online were shocked when it was announced that the battle royale mode, Shadow Arena, will be made into a stand-alone PC title. It actually made sense as it would be hell trying to match-make all the players and balance power, which will then affect the main game experience. To further even out the playing field, players will choose from a list of characters instead of building a unique one. Shadow Arena will enter Closed Beta next week, with the English server available as well!
