The World of Black Desert Online
Black Desert Online has a giant open world to explore, with lots of different scenery
and places. It has small villages and also big and crowded
cities. When you start off you will find yourself in Balenos. One of the three
regions in the province. The other two are Serendia and Clapheon. This area is
located in the northeastern of the realm. This province is filled with big forests
and great plains filled with wildlife. And in the north of the province you can
find the sea. Because of this the northeastern area enjoys a warmer climate
then the other regions.
When you explore the world some more you can find a much colder area filled with ice and
snow in the south. Or go explore to the west and find a desert filled with
sand, dunes and ruins.
Balenos is the first village you will find in your great adventure. It is a small
village located by the sea. A bit farther in your adventure you will find the
town of Serendia. This town is bigger than Balenos. It has bigger houses. Wider
streets and a lot more NPC live there.
After you have explored the world of Black Desert some more you enter the great city
of Clapheon. This is the capital of the first province. It has great walls and lots
of things to do. With the added Parkour system you are able to get over small
walls and ledges quickly. You can also climb the rooftops if you desire so you
can get a great view of the world.
Also be aware! When you are exploring the world of Black Desert, it is possible for you
to find dark caves or large dungeons. Don’t be afraid to go in and explore them
because great adventure lures in them and epic loot awaits you. You can find
them in all sorts of places. For example within a pile of rocks in the forest.
Or maybe behind some bushes and branches near some plains.
Black Desert Online is an open world MMORPG. Which means there will be no loading
screens within the area, expect in dungeons or instances. So you can walk from
east to west without a loading screen.
Black Desert also has a beautiful weather and climate system. You’ll be able to fish
and farm in the regions where the climate is right for it. For example you
can’t farm in a desert or snowy area because it is too hot and dry or the
ground is too hard and it’s too cold. But in a dry climate like a desert you
can raise camels (more of that in the breeding topic).
Every region has his own climate and weather, for example in a snow area there will be
snow and rain and in a desert it will be hot and dry. There are also
sunny and stormy areas. Black Desert has also a beautiful day to night cycle. Rather than other games which mostly
have a switch from day to night without any change between it. Like a switch,
you turn it on and it’s day and you turn it off and it’s night. Black Desert
doesn’t have that off/on switch, they have a slowly day to night cycle which
change the game totally.
Mysterious things can happen in the night which you will not be able to see during daytime.
So keep your eyes open. Also the NPCs will leave the streets when it becomes night and they’ll return after sunrise
to their shops or work.
