About The Game
Crimson Desert is an open-world action-adventure game that follows the journey of a mercenary by the name of MacDuff. The official gaming page suggests that this is a “Saga Written in Blood”. Also, the name Crimson Desert gives out ample hints towards the nature of Bloodshed and fierce battles that would plague the Desert in the game. Blood has turned this Desert into Crimson and hence the name of the game. The publishers revealed that Crimson Desert is going to be an Open World game that will involve original storytelling. Crimson Desert promises action-packed combat scenes, high spectacular landscapes, and great storytelling.
The game will be a Single-Player game and not an MMORPG. Pearl Abyss America CEO Jeonghee Jin has confirmed this news. The decision behind making Crimson Desert a Single-Player game is highly motivated by keeping the gaming franchise unique. The previous game in this franchise was Black Desert Online, a massive hit in the gaming market. The game followed a similar battlefield scenario and was a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game. It had generated more than $2 billion in revenue for the franchise and Pearl Abyss doesn’t want to hinder its path with a new release. Many think the move is planned to let both the games dominate and perform separately in their domain.
