Black Desert Online developer Pearl Abyss announced to day that they’ve signed a formal agreement of partnership for bilateral technical cooperation with Bravely Default makers Silicon Studio.
We mostly know Silicon Studio these days as the developers behind Bravely Default, 3D Dot Game Heroes, and Muramasa, but they’re actually a technology company in charge of producing various 3D computer graphics products and middleware software, such as the post-processing visual effects library, YEBIS, which has been used in games such as Bloodborne and Dark Souls III.
“Pearl Abyss is a very competent company. With their help, we will be able to bring out the full potential of YEBIS and help foster a new generation of technology development,” says Masaki Kawase, Lead Software Engineer at Silicon Studio.
With Pearl Abyss having signed the MOU with Japan’s Silicon Studio, the two organizations will work together on graphic technology research and engine department, which should prove beneficial for Black Desert Online as they move forward.
“Black Desert Online already boasts outstanding graphics, but with the cooperation of Silicon Studio, we will be able to elevate the game’s visuals to an even greater degree of fidelity,” says Pearl Abyss CEO Kyoungin Jung.
