Seoul, South Korea - October 17, 2018 - In celebration of Halloween, hundreds of monsters will spawn in the Black Desert world for the Halloween Nightmares event coming to Black Desert Online SEA from October 17 to October 31. 

During the event, the Halloween monsters will pop up randomly every hour in all territories excluding Valencia and the seas, and quests can lead to various item drops. Adventurers can also expect Black Cloth drops that can be traded for a Garnier Troupe Garb (male/female). Adventurers can exchange ten Black Cloths for one outfit from Merv, a non-player character (NPC) in Calpheon.

Check out this video of the terrifying Halloween coming to the Black Desert world.

SEA Adventurers will also be able to take on Isabella the Black Witch for the first time ever during the event. There’s no penalty for dying in the hands of Isabella, and successful quests can lead to lucrative rewards as well as Halloween Gift Box drops.

In addition, new Adventurers and those that have been playing with guest passes will have a chance to earn permanent access to Black Desert Online SEA as part of the game’s Halloween festivities. Starting today, all new and guest Adventurers that log in for at least 7 days and reach level 56 by November 13 will get permanent access to the game.

Detailed information about all of the Halloween events can be found here.
