Korean MMO Black Desert’s world gets a fly-through as developers Pearl Abyss show off their latest trailer during its closed beta period. The fly-through shows a huge living world, sped up to be done in about 11 minutes. It’s easy to see how much longer this would take to traverse within the game itself and the differences in areas as the camera pans by are clear yet beautiful.
The flyby shows pathways, towns, mines, castles and lots of pristine nature—All ripe for the picking. Non-player characters can also be seen going about their business in towns, manning watchtowers, mining ore and more.
Part of the fly-by’s reason is to let you see just how much land is available for the taking, as guilds with castles nearby seem able to somewhat influence these AI-controlled towns from an earlier video. It’s interesting to see how graphics are being handled, with some obvious draw-distance popping of more detailed items as the camera flies by.
If their player-versus-player battles and castle sieges end up as large as the devs hope, this could be one way they’ll reduce the inevitable lag monster.
Black Desert will be available on PC.
