Kakao Games today announced that Black Desert Online’s new playable class, the Dark Knight, will be available from Wednesday, March 1. Starting today, players can select and customize the Dark Knight using the Character Creator, allowing them to decide on the appearance of their new character before she is officially added to Black Desert Online next week.
In addition, all Black Desert Online players can receive an extra character slot from the loyalty shop at practically no cost (1 loyalty) and the maximum amount of character slots is extended to 13 to support the additional class.
Teased earlier this month, the Dark Knight hails from the ancient land of Kamasylvia, which she left after causing a large-scale disagreement among Kamasylvia inhabitants, after seeking out and using forbidden powers of darkness that extinguish natural forces. In battle, the Dark Knight mercilessly unleashes this terrifying skill, stripping the life force of her enemies by using her two-handed Kriegsmesser sword or her array of dark magic attacks. Even though her sword is cumbersome, she skillfully dances around her foes chaining her heavy attacks with ranged spells.
The Dark Knight, as well as the Kamasylvia territory coming later, will both be available as free updates.
