How's the Game World? (Different Biomes?)

5 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hello!

I'm a potential buyer of Black Desert. I've seen videos of it and hence some pictures of the world and so comes following question:

Does the world of Black Desert include different biomes/vegetations? I don't know if I'm wrong, but I only have seen Mediterranean/European-like landscapes yet. Are there other areas like a desert or a jungle or something a bit more snowy and cold, or is the only existing biome all green and mild?

I'm only mid lvl so far, but it's variations of vegetation, forests, green and "dry" plains, some run-down villages and rocky places, mountains, a dry desert region that just got released, and some underwater exploration zone is upcoming along with naval battles. Yea, its mostly vegetation with that European flair, but it's still damn pretty. I'd think they would release some snowy region in the future to spice things up.

One thing to keep in mind is other themepark mmo's with loading screens allow them to switch up the atmosphere/environment drastically - a zone is snowy then the next zone is a friggin desert. Here it's all seamless. Imo the sunsets in high settings more than make up for the slightly less variation.

That sounds promising. Hopefully they'll bring out expansions including new areas/biomes in the future.

 

Thanks for the answer!

the variation is much more subtle than other MMOs, but the areas do change as you move further through them.

the area you start in has lots of different trees with lots of bushes and vegetation spaced between them. directly south, it is all still really "green and mild", but you definitely notice things open up; much more swampy with only a few big willow trees every now and then. to the west of that, the forest is clearly much 'older', with lots if tall trees tightly packed and making less room for the vegetation below them.

I have not explored much, but I like the way the changes in environment I have seen so far are not too sudden, but they are definitely there. looking forward to exploring the more deserty areas, and really hoping they add some snow.
