At The Game Awards 2020, publisher and developer Pearl Abyss unveiled the first gameplay trailer for Crimson Desert, building excitement among gamers. Beautiful settings, detailed graphics, and powerful battles have fans, old and new, eagerly awaiting the game’s debut.
The exact nature of Crimson Desert, like its upcoming release date, is shrouded in mystery. The scope of its multiplayer component, now only described as an “open-world action adventure,” remains to be seen. The creators of Black Desert Online may or may not release another massively multiplayer online game. We will have to be patient until closer to the Crimson Desert release date when more information will be available.
What is the Expected Release Date for Crimson Desert?
Jin-Young Heo, CEO of Pearl Abyss, has stated that the firm plans to discontinue support for Crimson Desert in the fall of 2023. Since this window has passed, we expect it to be released sometime in early 2024 based on the video shown at last night’s Gamescom event. It will also be released simultaneously on PC and consoles, which is a nice touch.

Information on How to Play and the Plot of Crimson Desert
Crimson Desert appears to be an open-world fantasy role-playing game like its inspiration. You can travel around on foot or horseback, and activities like fishing, chopping down trees, and petting several dogs are available. There appears to be a variety of unique foes (including those that you can climb, like in Shadow of the Colossus) and rewarding combo, block, and parry-based fighting.
The plot is mysteriously absent from the trailer. As far as we can tell, we play the main character, Macduff as he faces off against evil and confronts his past in a game that takes place in the same universe as Black Desert Online.
All aspects of town life, from job boards and shops to fishing systems, are shown in the gameplay clip. Some of the more imaginative components of the game, such the mystical monoliths and the many puzzles, are also on display. Oh, then there are ents; that’s some truly tree-tremendous stuff.
The massively multiplayer online game was first aggressively promoted at The Game Awards 2020. You can check out the first 5-minute clip below, showing various landscapes, from snowy mountains to lush meadows and steep slopes.
Is the PS5 getting Crimson Desert?
The PlayStation 5 version of Crimson Desert will be released simultaneously as the Xbox Series X|S and PC editions. We expect this to be one of the most successful massively multiplayer online games ever released simultaneously for consoles and personal computers. However, PS4 play is not to be expected.
