As DAUM are still in the localization and polishing process to adapt to the Western market, this early alpha version of the EU/NA client will be only able to provide a basic gameplay experience and does not reflect the final state of the product at launch.
You will also find some features present that are disabled or not fully functional. This is intentional as DAUM are focusing on tweaking the hardware (server integration) and client configuration. A detailed list of known issues can be found when you launch the game. This build will only be playable in English. The level cap during this Alpha is 30.
About Black Desert Online:
Black Desert Online (BDO) is an open world action MMORPG with next generation visuals and skilled based combat that will rejuvenate the genre. Black Desert Online has the best and most in-depth character customization feature of any game that is currently on the market which allows for unprecedented detailed character creation. Its intuitive controls, beautifully designed world and extensive lore will excite both newcomers and veterans of MMO games and action RPG’s in general.
Black Desert Online will be released in early 2016 and will not be free to play or employ a subscription model.

Pricing details will be revealed soon.
