As promised, Crimson Desert revealed a new trailer at The Game Awards 2020, featuring in game footage! You can check it out below:
As you might expect, there’s plenty of expansive terrain shown off, as well as combat. The UI is minimal for now, so we can’t really say how it’ll work out, but you can definitely expect that real time action battle you Souls-like fans would be familiar with. It looks like you can get visual feedback on your injuries, like how arrows appear to be stuck in the character. It also shows off some clambering onto a boss to deal blows to it, as well as aerial combat and presumably a kind of siege mode. We’ll have to stay tuned for more details, but it looks gorgeous, so look forward to Pearl Abyss’ next title. Check out some screenshots below:
Crimson Desert is a revolutionary open world action-adventure that combines elements of narrative driven single-player games with online multiplayer functionality. The game is set on the continent of Pywel, a war-torn world with many different territories, cities, cultures and religions. Pywel is a land full of turmoil, with many areas, factions and regions fighting for control. As players progress through the game, events will unfold that will shape the destinies of all involved. The main protagonist is Macduff, a downtrodden mercenary fighting to reclaim their land, along with his mercenary group.
