The North American and European version of Black Desert Online will be published by DAUM which should be well-known to those that have been following the game as they are also the Korean publishers.
It wasn't long ago when Pearl Abyss had everyone guessing on which company was going to publish the NA/EU versions of the game. After e-mailing one of the Pearl Abyss representatives, I can now confirm that this information is legit. They replied with, Yes, it's true. Daum will be publishing Black Desert in NA and EU." Pearl Abyss was already working on an English client between the 1st and 2nd CBT, but they weren't able to finish it in time for the 2nd CBT. It makes me wonder if the next beta will the language available! Unfortunately, there has been no news on when the 1st beta will start for the NA/EU versions of the game.
The 3rd Closed Beta is just a few months away and I am already hyped up to play the game once again. Make sure you check out my recent Black Desert 3rd Closed Beta post to find out more details about the upcoming test or if you have questions regarding it.
