Black Desert Online’s brand new expansion, Drieghan, will be playable for the very first time during this year’s EGX!

Drieghan will feature a large mountainous area, over 300 challenging quests, fresh nodes to conquer and a new menacing dragon boss called Garmoth. It's set for release later this year as a free update but EGX visitors will be treated to a sneak preview thanks to a partnership between Kakao Games and ESL.

In addition to getting hands-on with the expansion, visitors to the Black Desert stand will also receive a free game code for Black Desert Online valued at £7.99 and have the opportunity to collect an exclusive Black Desert Online goodie bag.

Visitors will be able to get hold of the goodie bag in one of three ways; defeat the world boss in demo, successfully take part in a PvP tournament or post a picture on SNS with BDO cosplayers using the hashtag #BDORemastered.

Throughout EGX, Kakao Games will live stream all booth activities on Black Desert Online’s official Twitch channel. Aside from content and tournament streams, there will be a host of panels with Black Desert Online cosplayers and a Developer Q&A on Drieghan’s main features. A full streaming schedule will be revealed at a later date on the official Black Desert Online website.

EGX, the UK's biggest games event, returns to the NEC in Birmingham on the 20th-23rd September. What are you waiting for, get your tickets now!
