Black Desert Online

Black Desert Online is a massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) developed by Pearl Abyss and published on PC in 2015. The game was later brought to the Xbox One in 2019.

Black Desert differs from many other MMORPGs in that the combat of Black Desert is action-based and requires manual aiming like a third-person shooter. Skills can be activated through use of combos, dodging, and blocking.

The game also offers housing, fishing, farming, and trading systems as well as large PvP modes like siege and castle battles.

There is a mobile spin-off of Black Desert Online currently in development.
