The Black-Desert.com fansite had the opportunity to speak with Pearl Abyss Y Daum Communications on the gamescom. The result is a very good interview where, among other things, the Black Desert Online naval system has been discussed. Thanks to the Spanish fansite and their great effort BlackdesertSP, you can read the complete interview here: http://www.blackdesertsp.com/destacados/noticias/entrevista-gamescom-r67
“Yes, naval transport and ship combat will be present in Black Desert Online,”
pointed out Daum member Park Yoo Jin. “Players will be able to control ships and boats, and depending on the type, more than one person can accompany them.”
Pearl Abyss already spoke during E3 that they would have sea combat in an interview granted, to the aforementioned fansite, although we know that naval combat is still not in the betas of Black Desert Korea.
