Get Black Desert Online For Free By Speeding Through Your Seven-Day Trial

Do you love Black Desert Online? More appropriately, do you think you'll love Black Desert Online? If so, you can get a copy of the game for free just by reaching a certain milestone in the game during your seven-day free trial -- but it's going to take some time and effort.

From now until Oct. 17, new players -- or at players willing to make a new account -- can sign up for the seven-day free trial of Black Desert Online and earn a copy of the Starter's Package for the game, which retails for $9.99. All you have to do is complete your character's Awakening quest, which is available at level 56. Doing the math, that's an average of eight levels per day. No problem for you hardcore grinders, right?

While it's not a leveling boost -- in fact, it's very much the opposite, in that you could pay to level slowly or level quickly for free -- asking your players to hammer through your content at breakneck speed might as well be telling them that that introductory stuff doesn't matter: "The real game is the endgame," and so forth. Since the promotion targets new players specifically, it ensures that will be the message they receive during their first taste of the game. Me, I'd rather spend the 10 bucks and take my time to enjoy the game, but to each their own.

Great game if you're not aiming for end game sieging, kinda too late for that now. You'd have to get help from veterans, great game and endless sense of progression! Too bad the costume melting is now implemented.

That's funny because by the time you reach that level you'll be sick of this game. And then come to realization what this game really is.

A waste of time.

So funny like all games that went pay to play are jumping ship. Maybe if they made good games people would be more willing.

You can hit 56 in 5 hours. Do main story from 1-18, saving any black stones you get. Then go to castle ruins to 25, bloody monestary to 35, Khuruto cave to 40, and Marni lab to 46. Then go catfishmen to 52. The main issue is gear. For those wanting to try this, sell stuff until you can get Rosar weapon (with AP offhand), and grunil gear at +15. Should be pretty cheap.

Meh, even if they made it F2P, I still wouldn't play it.
