Crimson Desert - Catch All

They're pushing out more and more info so time to get the hype train rolling...

These first 2 require subtitles on:

Looks good. Has the same look of Black Desert. It's almost as readily identifiable as a Bethesda game is. Not quite sure what Pearl Abyss does to get the look they have, but I can tell it's them!

Diversity is an old old wooden ship. There were literally zero poc in that gameplay trailer.

Devs are from Korea, so not surprising.

Those graphics are impressive! Will be interesting to see what system will be needed to run it.

Here's what Black Desert Online is currently and what they'll be starting from

Black Desert Online system requirements
Memory:8 GB
Graphics Card:AMD Radeon RX 480
Black Desert Online CPU:Intel Core i5-650

Black Desert Online minimum requirements
Memory:4 GB
Graphics Card:ATI Radeon HD 3870
CPU:Intel Core i3-530
Black Desert Online File Size:27 GB

They have their own graphics engine, and it emulates what we see in RTX games with higher frame rates. It truly is amazing!

New interview with some tasty bits

Q: Crimson Desert is built on an upgraded version of the Black Desert engine. Is there a concern that PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will not be able to handle the game?

A: Crimson Desert is not being developed on an upgraded version of Black Desert’s engine, but rather on our completely new, next-generation game engine. Pearl Abyss has many years know-how in developing and optimizing our proprietary engine, and we will do our best to ensure that users can enjoy Crimson Desert on a number of devices, including next-generation devices.

Q: From the previous article, we understand that Crimson Desert is now a single-player experience with an online multiplayer mode. Are there any other games which uses the same system which players can refer to?

A: When it comes to single player and multiplayer modes, it’s difficult to talk about other games that might have the same system as Crimson Desert. Internally, we believe that “Crimson Desert is a genre of its own.” Crimson Desert doesn’t have seperate single player and multiplayer modes that are independent of one another, but rather the two are organically connected to provide a unique gameplay experience. But of course, those who wish to play a purely single player game, can do so too.

So pretty much just like BDO is currently.

Q: With Crimson Desert shifting to be more story-focused around a single-player game, can players expect an actual ending to the game upon completion?

A: Although single player mode has an ending, players can continue to play the game through what we’re calling “Another Journey (name subject to change).” This mode can be played whenever the player wants, without seeing the single player ending, and is organically connected to single player mode so that players may enjoy a unique gameplay experience

Q: What can we expect from Pearl Abyss in terms of overseas expansion in 2021?

A: Currently, Pearl Abyss offers Black Desert on all platforms to 40 million people in 150 countries around the world, and we are continuing to expand in overseas markets by self-publishing our games. From February this year, Black Desert Online in North America and Europe is scheduled to start direct services. Also, we are aiming to release Crimson Desert globally in the fourth quarter of this year.
