If you're ready to spend even more on the Korean MMORPG, the Deluxe Edition is available for $49.99 and it includes everything from the Standard Edition, plus a little bit extra. For an additional $20 you'll get a random Tier 3 horse and Calpheon Chargers' Horse Gear Set. 

And lastly, the most expensive one - Ultimate Edition costs $99.99 and on top of everything from the Deluxe Edition, it adds Belle Epoque Wagon Set, Kalstein Outfit,  Junaid Cat pet, permanent Horse Flute, thirty 3-type XP scrolls and a storage maid.

To celebrate the release, Pearl Abyss also revealed the roadmap for the first part of 2019. According to the notes, players can expect four new classes, new world bosses and three new regions - Valencia, Mediah and Kamasylvia.

For those unfamiliar with Black Desert Online, many consider it as one of the best looking MMORPGs currently available. The game also features a unique combat system which requires manual aiming, seamless world and large-scale castle sieges. However, a lot of these neat features are overshadowed by the game's progressions system that some players consider as pay to win .
