The Korean studio Pearl Abyss unveiled a new trailer for Black Desert Online as a console launch exclusive at the Microsoft Xbox Conference of E3 2018. It was first announced for the Xbox One in 2017, and earlier this year was said to be targeting a "Summer-ish" release.

Black Desert Online uses high fidelity graphics unlike many free-to-play MMOs and combines it with an action combat system that has become more popular in MMOs. It's touted heavily for its character customization and is part of a trend of large Korean AAA free-to-play-ish Korean action-MMORPGs.

 

The beta for the Xbox One version will begin this Fall, something of a delay from the earlier release target, but you can register in the official website starting now.
