Global Labs is a test server that all regions with Black Desert can access. It is a separate game client, so you must register a new account and download Global Labs. You cannot have Global Labs and another Black Desert Client running at the same time.
Only Windows PC can participate at the moment and English, Korean, and Chinese (Traditional) languages are supported.
The Global Labs server is simply for testing new patches and content before they are added to live servers. There may be game-breaking bugs and characters may be wiped at any moment. Anything you do on Global Labs is not linked to your main account.
Global Lab patches are currently published in Korean only. We do breakdowns of each patch in English and you can find these in our Global news section.
How to access Global Labs
To access Global Lab and create your account, you must first log into the game on your main account and must have a level 56+ character.
If you don’t have a level 56+ character, you can create a trial character. Trial characters are automatically level 60, allowing you to bypass the level 56+ character requirement without having to level one yourself. After creating your trial character, go to the ESC menu. The Global lab option is not available on the new menu so press the button in the top right to switch to the old menu. You can then find the Global Lab option and register to become a tester.
Now you must go to the official Global Labs website and create your account. Click Sign Up in the top right to get started. Make sure to use the same email address as your main account so that the two are linked correctly.
After you have registered, go to the Download page and download the client. Whilst downloading you may notice that the percent (%) bar is not moving, this is completely normal and it is just unpacking files. Watch your GB transfer progress if you are unsure whether the launcher is stuck or not. After downloading, log in and click the play button below.
You will then be asked to enter a family name and create your first character. Make sure to choose to start at Ancient Stone Chamber!
After logging in, check your Challenge rewards and mail for items such as inventory space and weight limit.
Teleport to Velia
Newer classes have the option to teleport straight to Velia by talking to the GMs at the spawn location.
Change Language Setting
Your account may be in another language when you first load the game. Go to the ESC menu > F10 > 1, to open the settings. You can then change your game client to English.
