Amsterdam, The Netherlands - 29th of May - Announced earlier this quarter as part of Black Desert Online's content roadmap, Kakao Games and Pearl Abyss have released an improved version of the Mediah main questline. As part of the ongoing efforts by Pearl Abyss to improve existing content, the main quests within the Mediah region have been rewritten and improved. These renewed quests now offer a different perspective to better depict the history, relationships, and lore that are central to the Black Desert Online world.
Players will get to experience the consequences of a pivotal moment in Mediah's history. During the storyline, players will have to choose between two factions: Mediah's Royal Family and the Mediah Merchants Union. By following either of the 'Crossroad' questlines they will watch the story unfold from that faction's perspective. Players that have previously or are currently completing the Mediah main quest can still play the revamped version of the questline.
