Seoul, South Korea, February 26, 2020—It is time for Adventurers to take on challenges to grab high-level boss gear and fight against the most powerful of monsters! While gearing up, Adventurers can also make their Striker and Mystic classes stronger through the new Succession update.

Starting today, Adventurers can obtain Suppressed Boss Gear by completing event Challenges and the Black Spirit’s Secret Quests until June 3. Suppressed Boss Gear, which are powerful items that have the same stats as TRI Boss Gear, will help Adventurers yearning for higher-level gear to defeat more powerful enemies. Those who complete the Challenges can obtain exclusive rewards such as the Suppressed Kzarka Weapon Box and Suppressed Dandelion Weapon Box by reaching certain levels. Those who already have high-level gear can sell these items to vendors for a large amount of silver. 

With the new Succession update for Strikers and Mystics, Adventurers can now experience a new way to enhance these classes by acquiring additional skills. These skills can be unlocked at level 56 by completing a series of Black Spirit quests. An in-game event is also running until March 18 to celebrate the arrival of this update.

In addition, a new mode titled “Savage Rift” has also been added to Black Desert SEA. Savage Rift is a defense game where Adventurers who are level 56 and above, along with their allies, must protect the Sealed Tower from a wave of monster attacks. To clear each stage, all monsters that appear must be swiftly defeated, after which various rewards can be claimed by participants. 

For those who wish to test the waters of the new update or become a new Adventurer, Black Desert SEA will be available on Steam for free from February 27 to March 2.
