Black Desert Online is making big updates this week with a free to play weekend to go along with it. First among the list of new content is the addition of the archer class. The archer brings his bow to the fight and makes his entrance along with the forest region of Kamasylvia. While you are there, you’ll have the opportunity to pick up your very own fairy companion. The fairy can imbue players with a number of skills including Tingling Breath and Feather Steps to help them along their way. “The Archer is a highly mobile class capable of shooting enemies while simultaneously dodging their attacks. Even against insurmountable odds, he is able to escape death’s grip. The Archer is able to utilize two weapons right from level 1, including his main Crossbow and the awakening Greatbow, freely switching between the two while casting magic such as Meteor Dive and Winged Strike to defeat his enemies.” From August 15-18, Xbox Live members will have a chance to play Black Desert free of charge with discounts on the game’s various starter packs. And finally the game is now available for pre-order on the Playstation store following what has been classed as a successful beta period.
