Black Desert Online will begin supporting cross platform play between both its PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version on March 4. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]
This comes exactly one year after the Xbox One release of the Pearl Abyss MMORPG. In addition to this, additional languages will be added to the Xbox One version of the game. These include Japanese, Korean, and both Traditional and Simplified Chinese. For more details you can read the press release below. This will be the first time these languages will be available for the Xbox One version of the game.
Cross play will also allow players from both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game to join the same guilds, use the same markets, and have access to the same content, as stated by the official Black Desert website. However, because of this server merge, players will the same “family” names will have their names slightly modified to allow for the servers to merge smoothly. Don’t worry though, Black Desert Online will be supplying these players with free name change vouchers so you will be able to change your name for free if you are one of the players effected.
In 2018 Black Desert Online’s Remastered patch went live. This included a higher graphics setting and remastered audios. A user interface overhaul was also included in this update patch.
There is no word if cross platform play will be implemented between the console versions and PC.
Black Desert Online is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
