Record Of Lodoss War Online Gives Black Desert A Run For Its Money

By Spencer . April 27, 2014 . 11:42pm

Update: The wrong trailer was added, the game looked as good as Black Desert because that *was* the trailer for Black Desert. This post has been updated with the proper trailer. Apologies for the confusion.

I think the last Record of Lodoss War game was the Dreamcast one from over a decade a go. L & K Korea, the makers of Mirror War, are developing Record of Lodoss War Online.


The MMORPG lets players become an Esquire, Oracle, Magic User, and there’s a glance at a fourth class in this trailer from Impress Watch. Esquire is a class straight out of the series. It’s designed for beginners and you play the role of a tank. Magic users are half elves from the Holy Kingdom of Valis. Oracles come from Alania.

    The trailer you used is for Black Desert. On the site you linked, they said that a new trailer for Black Desert was also released the same time and at the same venue where the new details about Lodoss War was unveiled. This is the trailer for Lodoss War:

    It’s a teaser. And the game is nothing like Black Desert.

    Record of Lodoss War reminds me of Ultima Online with its isometric view, which I’m a huge Ultima Online junkie, so this is immensely appealing.

    Still though, when I read here there would be a contender for Black Desert, I was like, “No wai!… So Soon!? I can’t wait for another awesome character creator!” Welp, so much for that.

  • I was more entertained by the comments below.

    And here I was thinking “It hasn’t been long since I saw those amazing BD trailers, and now some other game has topped THOSE?”


  • Wow

  • Dystopiq

    I can’t even look at you right now. Lol

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    Dude you need to totally change the headline as it makes no sense anymore. You can’t just put a small “update” inside the post. You made a mistake so either delete this article or change the headline.
