Black Desert Online has a release date.

The long wait for Black Desert Online is nearly over. Years after it first caught our attention with its amazing character customisation suite, the Korean MMO will launch in the west on March 3.

Daum Games is now taking registrations for the second closed beta test, which runs from 8:00 UTC February 18 through to the same time on February 22.

If you pre-ordered the Explorer’s or Conqueror’s package you’ll automatically be granted beta access, and don’t need to re-register. Former beta participants will have to, though. In any case, you can all bring your pre-made characters with you.

To celebrate the news, here’s a new trailer teasing story elements.
