Pearl Abyss and Kakao Games announced that the popular Mysteries of Summer event has returned to Black Desert Online. Since last week's update, players could follow 8 elemental-themed questlines to unravel the Mysteries of Summer and to get ready for this week's brand-new 9th questline. Here, players will get to experience A Tale of a Fallen Kingdom that will conclude this year's edition of the seasonal event.
Players can win some great prizes if they are one of the first to complete the full Mysteries of Summer challenge.
This year's challenge was heavily inspired by Steven Spielberg's popular film Ready Player One, where inhabitants of a virtual reality game hunt for Easter eggs. So keep that in mind as you log in to Black Desert.
The race to unravel the new quest will start globally for all regions. Those who wish to take on this challenge should watch out for useful hints that will be available on the official forums.
Prizes include the highly covetedHorse Emblem: Nightmare Arduanatt and 150 000 pearls, which will be awarded to the fastest player in each region that completes all nine quest lines. Further runner-up prizes for the top 10 in each region will be made available in the form of Pearls.
After the grand prize winner is known, everyone will have at least up until the following week's regular maintenance to complete the A Tale of a Fallen Kingdom questline to receive thespecial pink-colored in-game title "Soul".
Finally, those who complete the quests up until the 28th of August will receive Advice of Valks +70 and a Fine Accessory Box II.
