Black Desert Mobile coming to Android and iOS later this year

Black Desert coming to iOS and Android mobile devices later in 2019
Black Desert coming to mobile devices
With gross sales on PC and Xbox One of over US$1 billion, Black Desert can be definitely considered a successful MMORPG. Since other titles made the same move in the last years, it is not surprising that this game will launch for both iOS and Android devices later this year as Black Desert Mobile.
Codrut Nistor,

Playing MMORPGs on a phone might be quite a challenge since the interface of such games can be hard to operate on a small display. However, there are quite a few such games (Lineage 2: Revolution, for example) that have been available on Android and iOS handsets for a while, so playing them on a small touchscreen is not such a gruesome task and Black Desert is one of the next MMORPGs to go mobile.

Released in 2015 for Microsoft Windows and last month for Xbox One, Black Desert managed to get more than US$1 billion in gross sales so far. The most interesting part is that the game uses the free-to-play model in Japan, Russia, and South Korea, while the rest of the world gets it as a buy-to-play title. 

If you missed Black Desert so far, you should know that this is a fairly standard MMORPG that comes with skill-based combat, siege wars, fishing, hunting, gathering, cooking, and even taming horses. Characters can be customized from head to toe, and belong to various classes such as Giant, Ranger, Witch, Beastmaster, Dark Knight, and so on.

Black Desert Mobile is already available in South Korea, Taiwan, and Japan for iOS and Android, but the rest of the world should wait for a few more months before it goes live everywhere. The game features microtransactions and is a free-to-play title.

Have you played Black Desert already? What do you think about it?

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
