Black Desert Online is under new management, sort of. Developer Pearl Abyss has taken over publishing rights from previous publisher Kakao Games and to celebrate the move -- and the game's fifth anniversary -- it's making BDO free to claim and keep forever for two weeks.

From now until March 10, BDO has a 100% discount on Steam and the official website. Claim it from either source and it's free for you to play forever -- cash shop purchases notwithstanding. New and existing players can enjoy bonus login rewards during this period, as well as redeem the code "0225 WEARETHEONE!" for a bundle of items on PC or on console versions of the game.

A word of warning, though -- if you have an existing BDO account under the Kakao banner, you'll need to transfer it to the new Pearl Abyss-published version of the game before May 31 or you'll lose all your progress. Fortunately, Pearl Abyss has provided a handy video to help steer you through the process; you can find it at the end of this article or at this link.
