The ESL Arena will return in style to EGX in Birmingham. Fans of the MMO genre are in for a treat as the highly anticipated Black Desert expansion Drieghan will be exclusively available to try between the 20th and 23rd of September at the UK's biggest gaming event before its public release.  

Slated for release later this year, the free update Drieghan will feature a large mountainous area, over 300 challenging quests, fresh nodes to conquer and a new menacing dragon boss called Garmoth. Publisher Kakao Games is partnering with ESL to provide visitors with a unique first look into this exciting new content, which will be playable on 40 high-end Alienware PCs at the ESL Arena powered by Intel, making it the biggest activation during the EGX game show.

EGX visitors who stop by the Black Desert Booth will be able to check out the new expansion, have a chance at defeating the new dragon world boss and will receive a free game code to activate Black Desert Online. You can also enter to win an exclusive Black Desert Online goodie bag by defeating the world boss, entering a PVP tournament and posting a picture on SNS with our cosplayers using #BDORemastered

Throughout EGX, Kakao Games will live stream all booth activities on Black Desert Online’s official Twitch channel. The stream will include content provided by our partnered streamers that will check out the new Drieghan expansion. We'll also present a host of panels with Black Desert Online cosplayers and a Developer Q&A on Drieghan’s main features.

A full streaming schedule will be revealed at a later date on the official Black Desert Online website. Follow ESL UK on Twitter and Facebook for all the latest news on this event.

About the upcoming Drieghan Expansion

Drieghan, also known as the land of dragons and the ancestral home of dwarves is a huge new mountainous area in Black Desert Online offering new story content, quests and challenges. Adventurers will be able to travel to Duvencrune, the capital of Drieghan which shows a variety of environments of an alpine region.

New monster areas such as ‘Sherekhan's Grave, ‘Blood Wolf Town’, ‘Tshira Ruins’ will be released as well as the new dragon world boss, Garmoth, the Crimson Dragon. Players can also look forward to the Dragon Slayer, a brand new powerful craftable weapon which nearly matches the “Dandelion” weapon.
