Black Desert Online expands with two new classes.

Black Desert Online will update on July 17 with a pair of new classes: Ninja and Kunoichi. Here's Daum's description:

The Ninja is an agile close-quarters combatant. With dashes, aerial skills, and even teleportation, Ninjas can get up close to their opponents alarmingly fast. Designed to land precise, deadly strikes, both the Ninja and Kunoichi can conceal themselves until the time is right. When in a tight spot, Ninjas can also make use of stun and debuff techniques to regain the upper hand.

The Kunoichi fights in much the same style as the Ninja but specializes in deflecting attacks with her trusty Kunai. A defensive force to be reckoned with, the Kunoichi uses her sharp senses to execute perfectly timed blocks before landing devastating counterattacks.

You can see videos of both new classes below, but there's more Black Desert Online news to share: the July 17 update also adds an new Skill Addon System, which allows customisation of attackes with up to two effects. On top of that, the update will refine the Skill reset system, making it easier to redistribute your points without losing add-ons.

For those of you happy with your current Black Desert Online build, there'll be a new opportunity to test it out, thanks to the addition of Node and Siege warfare. These massive guild vs guild modes have been in testing for a while and it looks like the community has helped iron out the bugs.

If you're yet to try this popular MMORPG, we have free Black Desert Online guest passes to give away.
