Today Pearl Abyss updated the console versions of its popular MMORPG Black Desert adding cross-play, and celebrating with a trailer.
Starting today players on both Xbox One and PS4 will be able to pick between cross-play and platform exclusive servers depending on their taste, and enjoy an in-game event to celebrate this new feature.
On top of that, the PS4 version received the Archer character class and Kamasylvia region as part of the update, bringing it up to par in content with the Xbox One version.
Of course, this was required in order to enable cross-play between the two platforms.
That is also means that there is no cross-play with the PC version (dubbed Black Desert Online) which is considerably ahead in terms of content.
The game will also be on sale until March 18. The PS4 version is 25% off with Pearls (the game’s microtransaction currency) sold at 10% off. The Xbox One version is 50% off with Pearls discounted by 20%.
You can check out the trailer below, showing heroes bearing colors that you’ll surely find familiar.
Black Desert is currently available for PS4, Xbox One. Black Desert Online can be played on PC via the publisher itself or Steam. A mobile version dubbed Black Desert Mobile is also available.
