Black Desert Online Publisher Teases Three New MMO Games
Crimson Desert, DokeV, and Plan 8 will be revealed next week.
All three titles--Crimson Desert, DokeV, and Plan 8--are brand-new MMOs from the Korean studio. Pearl Abyss will reveal all three games via livestreams on both the company's official Twitch and YouTube channels during G-Star 2019. The streams begin on November 13 at 8 PM PT / 10 PM CST / 11 PM ET and at 4 AM BST on November 14.
Crimson Desert is billed as an open-world fantasy MMORPG where you play as one of three tribes fighting to survive and dominate a continent called Pywell. The founder of Pearl Abyss, Dae-il Kim, and two developers from RYL Online, Eter Lee and Jason Jung, have been building the project since 2018.
DokeV is a collective MMORPG meant for all ages. Black Desert Online's former animation director Sang-young Kim and former game design director Suh Won Choi are at the project's helm, but not much else is known about the colorful title.
Plan 8 is said to be an MMO shooter that puts you in control of an exosuit. Not much else is known about the project, though a trailer is scheduled to go live on November 14. Black Desert Online's former environmental art director Seung-ki Lee is leading the development of Plan 8, alongside Counter-Strike's co-creator Minh Le.
Pearl Abyss has already set up a website for each game, letting you subscribe for more information coming out of G-Star 2019 and beyond.
G-Star is Asia's largest video game exhibition, taking place between November 14-17 this year. The showcase will feature 36 countries and nearly 700 exhibitors from around the world.
