Future content updates [ Interview for INVEN.CO.KR]

58 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Disclaimer(This is also at the end of the post): This is not in any ways official statement made or a "promise" of any kind. Also it this was not an official press conference but simply an open interview(answers to questions below are follow up interview with inven) held in South Korea regarding Black Desert. The questions were answered by legal representative of Daum EU(Min-Sung Kim). Also please avoid making accusations or complaining about CMs of Daum. I respect them for taking their time to do their best and I want to thank them for all the work they have done so far. I know that many people were hungry for some broad layout so I am simply sharing latest information available that was not available to english community to ease the tension. Please don't get angry at Daum if they derail from the schedule laid out in this post. Thank you! (And thank you for Deska for adding the statement at the bottom for additional clarification:))

 

So Daum EU recently held press conference regarding Black Desert EU/NA launch and they laid out future plan for NA/EU.

Key points:

-"업데이트 일정의 경우, 국내 서비스에서 이미 상당 부분 진행했기 때문에, 안정적인 컨텐츠 업데이트가 가능하다는 장점이 있다. 메디아 업데이트도 3월 말에 진행하게 됐는데, 원래는 4월 중순에 추가될 예정이었다."

Regarding update schedule, we can release stable updates quickly. For example, Mediah was initially planned for middle of April but we were able to release it at the end of March.

 

-'바이 투 플레이'라는 진입 장벽이 있음에도 불구하고 여전히 많은 유저들이 게임패스를 구매하고 있다. 또한, 캐시샵 아이템 가격이 비교적 높은 편인데, 이런 캐시 아이템에서도 많은 매출이 나오고 있다. 이런 것을 보고 지금의 트렌드가 적어도 올해에는 계속 유지될 것이라고 확신하고 있다.

While the game is "buy to play," many users are still purchasing game pass. Furthermore, even though cash items are relatively expensive, we are maintaining large revenue and we predict that current trend will last until end of this year.

 

-"컨텐츠 업데이트는 유럽의 '온라인 게임 비수기'인 4월, 5월, 6월을 극복하기 위해 준비됐다. 4월과 5월에는 나머지 4개의 클래스를 오픈할 예정이고, 기타 발렌시아 같은 신규지역, 각성 같은 것은 6월부터 순차적으로 진행할 예정이다."

Key contents update period will be april, may, and june considering that these are online games' dry season. 4 classes is planned to launch is april and may. Other contents such as Valencia and awakening update will take place beginning in June.

 

-"소소한 부분들은 확인할 수 있다. 예를 들어 '펫' 같은 경우에도 '세퍼드'나 고양이 같은, 북미 유럽 유저들에게 특화된 펫을 더 추가할 예정이다. 이외에도 날씨 같은, 크게 대수롭지 않게 생각하는 소소한 부분들에서 디테일을 채우고 유저 감성을 자극할 수 있도록 하고 있다. 다만, 북미 유럽을 위한 별도의 빌드를 만들거나 하는 큰 틀의 업데이트는 어려울 것이다."

While various minor content difference may exist based on region such as Shepard and exculsive cats being released primarily for EU/NA. Additionally, weather system and other smaller details may vary from region. However, it will be difficult to make any drastic build changes or ones that change framework of the game.

 

Sorry for poor english. Feel free to correct any mistake in translation that I made.

Please note that, this is not official information from Daum Games EU B.V. Until there will be an official confirmation, please treat this post as a simple information.

Interesting, we now have concrete time frames for the classes. Pity we dont know which ones are coming out when. But a safe bet would be Blader/Plum next month, and Ninja/Kunoichi the following.

Why is that in korean? If Daum EU held this conference, shouldn't it be in english? In case Daum KR held it, korean would make sense, but why about EU/NA? Whatever

It wouldn't really make sense since KR already has 4 classes and Mediah and all of that. xD

Well at least I know I can finally rock my main some time around May... give or take.

I think this is an early publishing of the Q&A DaumEU gathered and forwarded to the home office / Pearl Abyss

Need to accept that NA/EU is really just a front for the Koreans. The money is going back to KR...so it's important for the parent companies to show off how much NA/EU is helping them right now.

Well I meant Daum KR making the conference, not that it is about BDO KR.

Makes sense, and not like it was unexpected as the name makes it obvious.

Also anyone took a look at the graphics?

Established at the 3rd of March 2015, wasn't that exactly 1 year before hard launch? Also I think they first came to reddit in August or so. 90k€ starting capital, compared to the millions they made. And 18 employees... no wonder support tickets need their time (jk)

Also apparently the hard launch is still an OBT according to those graphs.

Saw that and laughed myself.

Also they talk of "private" server which was an issue since CBT2 I think. *cough* Funny they brought that up in the conference. A region that is unserved has a private server, I wonder why *wink*.

They also mention the idea of bringing other games from KR to NA/EU...(told ya so)

Come on that is just good business, they laid the plan out and that is what we have been asking for, a timeline and all they had to do was post the same stuff here not on some korean site that if you didnt know about the site or read korean you would never know, needle in a haystack seems to fit this.

Confirms pretty much what I've been saying for the past month to all people say "you gotta lower prices, they will sell a lot more".

Look they are doing great and are happy with the situation. No, if they sold costumes for 10€ they would not sell 10 times more.
