Seoul, South Korea—October 23, 2019—The Great Expedition has finally come to Black Desert SEA. From remarkable visual contents to exciting in-game events, the great ocean of the world is ready to amaze all Adventurers who have been waiting for this announcement. The second week of Halloween has also been prepared with more events! 


The Great Expedition is not just a new update; it is a whole new open world in Black Desert SEA that allows Adventurers to feel like they are on oceanic adventures. The new Bartering system and the new island, Eye of Oquilla, have been introduced while more quests and Guild Missions have been added to the update. Adventurers are invited to participate in special events in celebration of the arrival of the Great Expedition. A Hot Time event will run until November 6, where they can boost their Sailing EXP by 30%. They can also try getting special items such as Designs: Epheria Sailboat and Designs: Frigate via Secret Shop ‘Ruelle’. More special rewards will be provided when the number of Bartering reaches a certain number by exchanging specific items with barterers for higher-level items.  


Halloween festivities are still running in Black Desert SEA with more events that will allow Adventurers to get prepared for Halloween. Until November 6, the Adventure Log event will allow them to get Fine Accessory Boxes III for clearing all quests. Adventurers can also face off against the Halloween monster Hexe Marie through the Dark Rift and the World Boss Isabella during this event period, where they can get special rewards including Boxes of the Silent Dead and Halloween Pouches for defeating them. 


Meanwhile, Adventurers can now get 40% discounts on all Black Desert Game Access Packages only through the official website until November 6.
