Seoul, South Korea—June 12, 2019—With the recent announcement about the future update plans of Black Desert SEA fueling the flames of anticipation among Adventurers, many have already begun their preparations to start new journeys and welcome the Shais, the newest addition to the playable class roster. Upon hearing the news, residents in certain cities decided not to sit idle during all the excitement—they’ve banded together to fire up some gear to assist all Adventurers in their explorations and travels!

Starting today, Adventurers can take a more scenic route when travelling between cities by taking off on Old Moon Sky Balloons, which are now live in Black Desert SEA. Those who hop on one of these hot air balloons will not only arrive at their destinations in style, but they will also get a bird’s eye view of beautiful lands and sweeping scenery! Adventurers can take on this ride solo or in pairs. Old Moon Sky Balloons are currently available in Calpheon, Altinova, and Valencia, so make sure to grab a boarding pass and settle in for a relaxing, picturesque ride!

Additionally, Shakatu will be actively giving out rewards to Adventurers every day as thanks for being voted runner-up in the Genie of the Black Desert event. With Black Crystal Shards and Shakatu’s Seals up for grabs, make sure not to miss this special giveaway!

Adventurers have also been spreading the news of the newest class that is preparing to land in Black Desert SEA this month. Those who have yet to pre-register for the new Shai class can do so until June 26 (before maintenance) to begin early customization of their characters on June 19. In addition, they will receive a bundle of valuable rewards, including two never-before-seen items. Adventurers can also continue to work together until the end of the pre-registration period and share the Shai pre-registration video on Facebook to gain additional rewards.

Whether soaring through the skies or sticking to the ground, there is no doubt that everyone in Black Desert SEA is feeling the excitement of these events. For more information about the Old Moon Sky Balloons, the Shais, and this update, head over to
