The highly anticipated Black Desert Online 2nd closed beta test (CBT) started on 22nd of April last week and will last for 3 weeks. The game has received a lot of attentions from players around the world, due to its unique sandbox gameplay, beautiful seamless world and non-targeting action battle system. This combination is indeed a novelty in MMORPG. In the first part of my review, I would briefly introduce Black Desert node system and trading system, with some personal comments.
One of the first things a player would notice when they open up their world map in Black Desert would be the many lines connecting different towns or regions. In Black Desert, the towns and various outposts in the vast world map are marked with circles and are called “nodes”. These nodes are automatically added to the map whenever you approach or enter them for the first time. However, these nodes are initially not connected.
