Black Desert Online official screenshot of a dragon

After being available for quite a while now the sandbox MMORPG Black Desert Online has finally made its way to Steam as well. If you're a pre-existing owner I'm afraid there is no simple way for you to start playing via Steam, but if you're a potential new player you'll be glad to hear that the Steam version is currently on a 40% discount, which brings the price down to €6.

Besides adding support for the Steam version, today's Black Desert update has also brought in a new class by the name of Striker. I think the name alone should give you a good idea of what the new class is proficient at, but if you need a bit of a helping hand you'll find the recently posted trailer down below. Have a look:

However, if you're wondering whether Black Desert Online is worth your time and money, I'm afraid that's not an easy question to answer. As you'll see in my now fairly old review I like most of the ideas Black Desert brings to the table, but the problem is that the gameplay itself is just not gripping enough to keep you entertained. As such, only consider getting invested in Black Desert if you're looking for a slow-paced MMORPG that's focused more around crafting and trading than actual combat. To do anything else is a surefire way of ending up disappointed a few weeks down the line.

If you need a bit more information before making a decision, consider visiting either the wiki or the official website. A quick browse through either of those should give you a good idea of just what kind of game Black Desert Online truly is.
