Who doesn’t like free games? Well if you are one of those people who for some reason don’t (you’re crazy btw) then you can just look away now. But for those of you who don’t mind increasing their Steam Library a bit more, Black Desert Online is now free for a limited time. Currently on sale for 100% off, the promotion for the MMO by Pearl Abyss will end by March 2nd.

The fantasy MMORPG has gained cult status by many beloved fans for it’s beautiful graphics and the fact that it's not a Pay-to-win MMO. I love free games and I’m sure you do too if you’re still reading this, so just go and add the game to your library and maybe check it out one day.

If you don’t normally play MMO’s, or never thought about giving Black Desert Online a shot, you may as well now since it’s free. Unfortunately the one drawback of free-to-keep deals like this means Steam users won’t be able to earn any trading cards, but if you’re only looking to try the game out then I’m sure that’s not a dealbreaker.

Will you be downloading Black Desert Online? If you’ve played it, then what do you think? Let us know!

Most annoying thing of this game is texture popping. Grass has like 20 different looks depending on how far away it's from you. There's no need to change the grass when it's 5 cm nearer to you! Quality wise it looks the same, texture wise, completely different. The implementation of the level of detail is very bad in this game. In remastered mode it does help a bit, but you still notice a lot of texture popping

Thx for the input.
Looks like this game will be one of those whose destiny will be to sit in my virtual library collecting dust.

Claimed it for the giggles, but probably never going to play it.

Yeah, I have no idea where you heard BDO isn't pay-to-win. Not only is it ridiculously so, I can't believe they still charge for the base game as is.

It's more like: every customization is a DLC at the price of a full DLC. For example, a full outfit may cost you -50 euro!
Other things such as crafting a boat actually takes weeks to complete

I chuckle and scoff when someone says BDO isn't pay-to-win. "Pay to advance much faster than others can possibly advance by just playing the game" in a game where progression determines your chances of ultimately winning.

Sadly you're on point.
