    Pearl Abyss and Kakao Games have announced today that Black Desert Online will receive a brand new expansion named Drieghan. This update will feature a large mountainous area, over 300 challenging quests, fresh nodes to conquer and a new menacing dragon boss called Garmoth.

    Drieghan will launch later this year as a free update and will be playable for the very first time during this year’s EGX game show which takes place between the 20th and 23rd of September in Birmingham. Kakao Games is partnering with ESL, the world’s largest independent esports company, to provide visitors with a unique first look into this exciting new content. Black Desert Online’s Drieghan expansion is playable on 40 high-end Alienware PCs at the ESL Arena powered by Intel, the biggest activation during the EGX game show.

    EGX visitors who visit the Black Desert Booth will be able to check out the new Drieghan expansion, have a chance at defeating the new dragon world boss, as well as receive a free game code of Black Desert Online valued at £7.99. There are three great ways to win the exclusive Black Desert Online goodie bag:
    1. Defeat the world boss
    2. PVP tournament
    3. Post a picture on SNS with our cosplayers using #BDORemastered
    Throughout EGX, Kakao Games will live stream all booth activities on Black Desert Online’s official Twitch channel. The stream will include content provided by our partnered streamers that will check out the new Drieghan expansion. Aside from content and tournament streams, there will be a host of panels with Black Desert Online cosplayers and a Developer Q&A on Drieghan’s main features. A full streaming schedule will be revealed at a later date on the official Black Desert Online website. Please follow ESL UK on twitter and facebook or the Black Desert Online social media channels listed below for all the latest news.

    About the upcoming Drieghan Expansion
    Drieghan, also known as the land of dragons and the ancestral home of dwarves is a huge new mountainous area in Black Desert Online offering new story content, quests and challenges. Adventurers will be able to travel to Duvencrune, the capital of Drieghan which shows a variety of environments of an alpine region. New monster areas such as ‘Sherekhan's Grave, ‘Blood Wolf Town’, ‘Tshira Ruins’ will be released as well as the new dragon world boss, Garmoth, the Crimson Dragon. Players can also look forward to the Dragon Slayer, a brand new powerful craftable weapon which nearly matches the “Dandelion” weapon.

  3. This is an actual meme

    “Later this year,” when there’s only 3 months left. Bets on the intended December release getting pushed to a New Years surprise.

    You guys gotta be kidding me.
    Are you for real? First you make us wait nearly over half a year, now you make us wait UNTIL AFTER SOME DUMB CONVENTION. You cant be serious Kakao. Holy hell this is annoying.

    Edit: Everyone should just spam their tickets and ask them to release this faster, and also write an email to PA directly to stop treating NA/EU like 2nd rate regions. Maybe try not to release the damn game in 150 countries how about that.

    Still wonderful that you only get to experience these new areas if you roll good RNG, or just swipe a card and brute force your AP up.

    What an INSULTING joke!

    Still no concrete info on when we get it..... also it isn't "NEW". Cool.... you're going to have a playable demo... what a waste of time and effort. You know we can just go on the internet and see all this for some time now? What a joke

    Just a terrible job you all are doing in NA/EU.... really ridiculous

    IS THIS A JOKE?!? What the.... How about you guys make it playable for all of us yesterday? This is old content. Stop holding stuff back. I don't care who is responsible for the delay, hire enough translators to localize on time or pressure PA to do their fking job because having to wait over half a year on content is UNACCEPTABLE!

    Sad.... but accurate. When we get "new" content its already old. If these companies weren't such garbage they could be making so much money. Invest a few dollars to actually understand this region..... cause yall are so tone deaf it hurts. I would happily spend $50 a month if they could get their BS together... but they sadly won't... now they get $0 from me.

    This is a stupid idea, given that the region is already out in other servers, AND on the Global Lab.

    Come on. Are you guys really that stupid? Don't give a trial to a region that we already have access to. There will be more backlash.

    Editing this in:

    Actually push for us to have the Global Build that PA keeps promising us. Show that you give a **** for once in your pathetic existence.

    Never have I seen new areas delayed for a bloody year consistently.
