Black Desert Update 1.57 October 13 patch notes:
Full message from Pearl Abyss:
A small patch has been released.
You will be prompted to download this patch the first time you log into the game after its release, or after you have restarted your game if you are currently in game.
This patch will address the following issues:
– Camera resets when exiting the Skill UI
– The remaining time on buffs overlap with one another when the game is set to English
In order to download the update, you will need to restart your game.
Yep, that’s basically it for the patch. However, in addition to that, the studio has confirmed that Black Desert will be transitioning to the PS5! As one might expect, you can carry your game saves and whatnot from the PS4 version to the PS5!
We are pleased to announce that Black Desert will be able to be played from day one on the PlayStation 5. If you already own Black Desert on PlayStation 4, you will be able to play Black Desert on PlayStation 5 at no extra cost.
Not only that, as long as your PlayStation ID remains the same as you transition to the PlayStation 5, you will be able to pick up your adventures from the PlayStation 4 and continue your story.
For more information about backwards compatibility, you can check out the official PlayStation 5 blog highlighting more of the details on backwards compatibility.
Of course, the game will be playable on the Xbox Series X as well.
Xbox Series X/S
We are happy to announce that as backwards compatibility is a core feature of both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, you will be able to enjoy Black Desert on the next generation of consoles from day 1. There will be no need to purchase any additional bundles as all current owners of Black Desert will be able to continue their adventures on these devices. The only caveat is that your current Xbox Live Account must be the one used, and if it is, you will be able to continue where you left off!
We’ll let you know once a new game update has been released.
