Today Pearl Abyss revealed a brand new character for its popular MMORPG Black Desert (or Black Desert Online, as it’s named on PC).
Her name is Nova, and she’s a powerful fighter wielding a giant shield and an equally massive mace.
She will come to all platforms (PS4, Xbox One, PC, and mobile) worldwide on December 22.
Below you can check out a few trailers showcasing her story and gameplay (the mobile version has its own trailer, since the gameplay is a bit different).
To celebrate her introduction, players will simply need to log into the game starting tomorrow to receive a bunch of bonus goodies. A second bundle will be delivered on December 17, and a third on December 22. You have time until January 20 to grab them.
You can enjoy all the trailers below.
Here’s an official description:
“Nova wields a Morning Star and the shield Quoratum, which contains the powers of the Divine Tree Quturan. She is the last remaining heir of Calpheon’s royal bloodline that was erased along with the rise of the republic. Her shield covers her body like an iron fortress, and she can flatten even distant enemies by extending the chain of her heavy Morning Star.
Nova’s Quoratum is also possessed by the souls of the Thornwood Guard, who follow her every word. By commanding her spirit guards to attack while she remains fortified behind her giant shield, she can effortlessly combine offensive and defensive tactics to overwhelm her enemies.”
