Valencia Content Update Hits Black Desert on Xbox One

Uncover the behemoth monsters and ancient secrets of Valencia within new region filled with unique items, weapons and gear

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. – May 8, 2019 – Pearl Abyss announced that Black Desert’s third major content update, Valencia, is now available. The desert kingdom is the largest region since the release of Mediah, containing withering sandstorms and new enemy types for experienced adventurers to conquer. The Valencia update also adds Absolute Skills, improvements to gear enhancements, new items, and user interface improvements in response to community feedback.

Watch the Valencia region launch trailer here:

The sands of Valencia hold many secrets, including Kutum, a world boss which emerges to hunt with lethal precision. To assist in defeating Kutum, Absolute Skills have been added to all classes, enabling devastating and powerful attacks. Adventurers successful in their conquest have a chance to acquire its Sealed Sub-weapon Box, which contains a deadly weapon that grants extra effectiveness against monsters.

Valencia’s violent past also introduces new gameplay elements. Adventurers who kill another player within the region will receive a villain mark regardless of their current Karma, and will be treated as a hostile by other players. Once killed, murderers will be sent to Pila Ku Prison to serve out their time and gain de-buffs. Chances of escape are slim, but where there’s a will, there’s a way…

Other additions and improvements include:

  • Gear and item enhancements: Gear cleansing, accessory melting and new gear enhancement levels have been added due to player request.
  • New items: The kingdom of Valencia introduces region-specific items, but more powerful potions and Dim Magical Armor exchanges are now available as well.
  • UI improvements: To make the game more visually appealing, interface changes have been applied to quests, item information, chat windows and the central market.

Black Desert will be available on Xbox Game Pass starting May 9th. Subscribers will receive a special in-game item, 10% off all Pearl Shop purchases, and 20% off Standard, Deluxe or Ultimate edition bundles.
