The Game Awards has always been about revealing things big and small, and the very unexpected. The show always manages to have at least a few gems that you had no idea was coming. One such instance here was Crimson Desert, the latest game from the developer of the highly successful Black Desert.
The trailer, which you can see in full below, is said to be captured in-game footage and not edited. There’s not a lot here to give a sense of the game’s overarching story, but there’s lots of action, hacking and slashing and the like. Like Black Desert, the game will have online elements with promises of combining it with a more story-driven experience. There’s not many details obviously, but we’ll no doubt see more soon.
Crimson Desert is set to release in Winter 2021. No platforms where given, though PC is most likely a given and probably next generation consoles. We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
