Black Desert, a recently launched MMORPG in Korea, has been experiencing a rather crazy launch week. The game has been seeing a lot of activity since its opening, and the team is happy with the developments. However, the developers misleadingly referred to the number of daily users in the press release, stating that they reached 300%.

After the pre-patch launch, Black Desert Online’s official website announced that the action MMORPG’s players have increased by 300%. While the numbers are certainly impressive (and by no means a small number), it’s not hard to see why the developer is being cautiously optimistic.  With the introduction of the open world and new content, the game’s playerbase has been steadily increasing – but it will take a few months for their numbers to catch up to what they were before the patch.

Warning: The information in this article will disappoint you. Pearl Abyss has indeed released relative figures for Black Desert, claiming that the number of daily players has increased by over 300%. Over 300% of what, you ask? Hey, look over there!

Pearl Abyss has announced that Black Desert Online has seen an increase of over 300% in daily players, both new and old, thanks to new content updates, a seasonal server, and trade promotions, according to the studio, which also suggests that Geidel Ball, the summer seasonal server, the new Corsair class, and the free trial period have helped explain the increase. The popular game has reached the top spot on Steam in the MMORPG category.

Last fall, Pearl Abyss counted 40 million registered players on BDO across all four platforms, but of course we have no idea how many players actually log into the game each month. According to SteamCharts, the PC version of the game – again, only through Steam – showed more modest growth last month, but is still quite far from the 2019 peak of 60,000 players on Steam.

For comparison, since we’re playing with numbers: Elder Scrolls Online had 18 million lifetime players at the last count, Albion Online reached a daily population peak of 140,000 players in the spring, DC Universe Online is the morning’s largest MMORPG with 419,000 monthly active players in 2020, Blizzard’s online games like WoW have lost nearly 29% of their total active player base in the last three years, and I drank exactly two cups of tea this morning.
