Pearl Abyss has revealed that Black Desert Online will have a beta test on PS4 between August 9 (at 08:00 BST, 09:00 CEST) and August 13 (at 10:00 BST, 11:00 CEST), just before the launch date of August 22, and this can be played without a PlayStation Plus subscription. All you need to do is sign up right here.
All participants get an exclusive Sky Hawk pet at launch, letting players loot items, increase Knowledge Gain Chance, and find rare monsters, although player data will reset at the end of the event. For more details on the beta you can head this way.
You can pre-order various editions right now, with a pre-order trailer down below, and the Deluxe and Ultimate Editions grant you 40-hour early access to the full game, with PS Plus members also getting a 10% discount on all pre-order editions.
On top of that a free content is available for Black Desert Online players on Xbox One, including new skills for the Ninja, three new world bosses, and more, as you can read about here.
