Black Desert Online has been out since 2014 on PC and since that time has made decent roots in the MMO space as an MMORPG to try. Now with the PlayStation 4 version of the game coming out in just a few weeks, new players without a PC will be able to experience the game for the first time.

If you’ve played other console MMOs like Elder Scrolls Online and Never Winter Online, we thought we’d put together our top reasons to jump into the Open Beta this week before the game is released on August 22nd, 2019.

Black Desert Online is quite different on how it takes the “MMO” approach, so we’ve listed some of our favourite things you can do, which are not necessarily specific to console but will definitely be nice from the comfort of your sofa.
