After a multi-year absence, Pearl Abyss has reinvented the fantasy RPG Crimson Desert with an expanded trailer for the game.

An extended trailer for the game was shown at Gamescom Opening Night Live 2023, detailing what fans can expect in Crimson Desert. You can check out the game trailer for yourself below to see what Crimson Desert is all about.

We’ve seen plenty of sword fights – both solo and in hordes – complete with toppling structures, bow and arrow fights, horseback combat, and huge explosions. We also got an idea of ​​some of the things in the world, including gigantic castles, the rewards that can be obtained, vast horizons, fishing, carjacking, and much more. And yes, you can pet the dog.

We also saw some gameplay that immediately sparked thoughts of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, including a series of sky islands floating above the overworld, hot air ballooning, and puzzle-solving with weird-looking artifacts. You can also climb some trees and buildings, slide through the air, and climb a huge shadow that looks like a giant monster.

No release date or window has been set for Crimson Desert.

Pearl Abyss first revealed Crimson Desert in 2019. The South Korean developer behind the MMORPG Black Desert Online also revealed Plan 8 and DokeV around that time. It’s been such a long time since we’ve heard about Crimson Desert that Pearly Abyss has indefinitely delayed the game to July 2021.
