Black Desert already had us captivated with the sneak peak at their extremely customizable character creation screens, but it appears they are hellbent on dazzling us further, following up with a teaser trailer that portrays the now much faster based combat within the soon-to-be sandbox MMORPG.
This shrapnel of media gives viewers a basic idea of how both melee and ranged battle will look and feel, capturing rumbles on the battlefield between a sword and shield wielding warrior, an acrobatic archer, a teleporting sorceress, and an axe slashing giant against the realms monsters.
Things have seemingly improved since the first beta test, as the former battle system had been regarded as a little stiff. Chain combo cooldowns have also been reduced, providing a little more oomph in the overall style the speed boost appears to have been intended for. The beta phase has a lot left to determine, such as if the increase in speed affects the games overall longevity, or if an increase in difficulty will counter the adjustment. Time and testing are left to tell.
As the second closed beta test for Black Desert commences this April 22nd, there are sure to be more crumbs here and there to get an interest churning in those following release.
