Pearl Abyss | Halloween enthusiasts and adventurers, prepare to be spellbound with Korean developer and publisher Pearl Abyss’ enchanting Halloween celebration across all Black Desert platforms – PC, console, and mobile – this October. Starting this week, Pearl Abyss hosts a hauntingly horrific Black Desert makeover with harrowing Halloween in-game events, reward-friendly activities, and deep, spine-tingling sales for players across all platforms.
NAVIGATE THE SPOOKY MARNI LAND ON PC
On PC, Marni Land, the ultimate Halloween theme park in Black Desert, makes its triumphant return. Amidst the shadows, the sinister Black Witch Isabella emerges, her presence striking fear into all who draw near. Brave adventurers must band together to vanquish her and claim a share of her coveted loot.
Other hair-raising challenges include:
Race!: A hair-raising "Red Light Green Light" challenge, where players pilot menacing robots to reach the finish line.
Shatter!: The Mad Scientist Marni's diabolical creation, Innocence Mk XII, has materialised in Marni's Spooky Playground. Engage in a bone-chilling game of rock, paper, scissors to shatter the robot's innocence.
Conquer!: Conquer the Halloween Adventure Log to unlock a treasure trove of handsome rewards.
Embark!: Embark on a spine-chilling Marni Land Questline.
Save!: Enjoy 70% off sales from suggested retail price on Steam
To fortify themselves against these ghastly trials, Adventurers will discover a spate of exclusive Halloween Login Rewards and Marni Land Daily Buffs, imbuing them with formidable power for combat, life skills, and horse training. But the terror doesn't end there; rumors swirl through the town, hinting at even more spine-tingling content looming on the horizon next week!
Check the official website on slithering seasonal events and brand new outfits for all classes.
ROLL THE DICE FOR A FRIGHT NIGHT TO REMEMBER ON PLAYSTATION, XBOX
Console players, don your costumes and ready your dice, for the Ancient Black Spirit Adventure board game awaits. Roll the dice and embark on a thrilling quest with enticing rewards that will keep you spellbound and beware of a monster named Spook who will begin randomly spawning across the world (except Valencia), dropping items like the Black Fabric, Memory Fragment, Ancient Spirit Dust, and a swath of other creepy items. Characters of all levels will be able to fight and defeat Spook, as it will adapt to the player's strength and abilities. If your character is level 56 or higher, a harder version of the monster will spawn out in the world. Other treats include:
Engage!: Join this sweet Halloween doll event where players can combine a doll with wrapping paper to receive valuable rewards.
Buff Up!: The Mysterious Knight will surprise you in monster zones to give you massive Skill EXP buffs.
Shine!: Enter this community screenshot event where adventurers can grab Halloween themed screenshots.
