Dark Knight Awakening coming next week / new content reveal this Saturday

Amsterdam, The Netherlands - April 6 2017/ PearlAbyss and Kakao Games are proud to announce that the Dark Knight’s awakening will be launched coming Wednesday after the regular weekly maintenance.

The Dark Knight has proven to be one of the most popular classes since she was launched to Black Desert’s NA/EU version last month.

Her awakening weapon, named “Vediant” is a set of phantom blades that are magically summoned in different sizes and grants the Dark Knight special life draining powers as well as powerful ranged offensive abilities. With her Vediant, she can dazzle her enemies by swiftly dashing through the battlefield while freely delivering powerful melee and ranged AoE attacks. Skillful players can replenish mana, and deal bonus damage by carefully chaining attacks and skills.

Just like with Black Desert Online’s other classes, the Dark Knight’s awakening skills will become available from level 56.


Even more exciting stuff is on its way. Besides the new Kamasylvia which will be added to Black Desert online in the near future, PearlAbyss and Kakao’s Korean service will announce new content via Twitch on April 8. The stream will be mirrored by the Black Desert Online’s official Twitch channel, which will be localised in English for the official announcement. The stream will start at 3 AM UTC and will consist of two topics:

  • LIVE PvP tournament
  • New content announcement (translated)
More information and assets will be released after the stream via an official announcement from Kakao Games and PearlAbyss. About Kakao Games
