Pearl Abyss has announced that the beta for the PlayStation 4 version of Black Desert is coming soon! The beta will run from August 9th to August 13th and everyone is eligible to participate, no PS Plus subscription required. Those who pre-register will receive the Sky Hawk pet when the game launches.
The Sky Hawk is an awesome pet that gives its owner some nice buffs. With the Sky Hawk out, players will be able to loot items, increase Knowledge Gain Chance, and even find rare monsters.
The caveat to the beta is that all data will be wiped at its conclusion, so it is a pure testing opportunity only. However, pre-orders for Black Desert are now open. While the game is free-to-play, those pre-ordering will receive some cool in-game items once it launches. Pre-order packages run $29.99, $49.99, and $99.99.
