More On: Black Desert Online

Tossing up to 50 players in the ever increasingly tightening quarters of a Battle Royale mode, Black Desert Online's Shadow Arena is entering into Early Access. The new mode is open to anyone who has purchased Black Desert Online or anyone who wants to take advantage of the free 7 day trial. 

Form the press release:

Shadow Arena is a new mode that pits up to 50 players against each other in a struggle for survival. Gather supplies and outwit your opponents to become the last person standing. Players will start the match as a ‘Black Spirit’, a small flying specter that can then possess the bodies of one of the playable classes in Black Desert Online.

For the Early Access version, the Warrior, Sorceress, Berserker, Tamer, Valkyrie, Wizard, Witch, Dark Knight and Mystic will be available allowing participants to pick from nine different playstyles.

By roaming the arena after finding their preferred class, players can gather skills, weapons, armor, accessories and special items such as flares, potions, traps and more. It will be essential for victory that players strategically acquire their skills and items to deal with the opposition.

More info about the new mode or the 7 day trial can be found on the official site.
