New Crimson Desert Gameplay Is Coming To Gamescom, Pearl Abyss Confirms


Story Highlights

  • New Crimson Desert gameplay is planned by Pearl Abyss for later this month in the Gamescom 2023 event. 
  • The tidbit was spoken by the CEO in Pearl Abyss’ FY2023 Q2 earnings conference call.
  • Crimson Desert is slated for a launch on PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X.

Crimson Desert has been on the list of highly awaited entries that were announced way ahead of time. The game is still a bundle of mystery for most gamers, but a new update by Pearl Abyss ― the devs behind the massively successful MMORPG project Black Desert ― has confirmed that the single-player action RPG will seemingly have a gameplay reveal in the upcoming Gamescom event this year.

Pearl Abyss unveiled the glad tidings in its FY2023 Q2 earnings conference call and stated that it is planning to reveal new footage of the title after a long while. 

In particular at Gamescom this year we plan to disclose new footage of the game that will actually showcase the real gameplay of CD. We will show you how Crimson Desert is being developed and perfected and show you the level of quality that we are aiming for,” said CEO Heo, Jin-Young.

The first official gameplay for the anticipated RPG was shown at The Game Awards 2020 event. While particulars regarding the RPG are lacking, we are familiar with the protagonist Macduff and his brewing struggles with the responsibilities of leadership and the dismal memories he carries.

Crimson Desert was announced by Pearls Abyss nearly half a decade ago, in 2019. Many players have still kept an eye on the single-player project despite a lack of details for it. The Corona pandemic played a major role in messing up the initial plans for the action RPG; however, things are finally starting to become clearer. Perhaps, Black Desert devs will also finally reveal a concrete release date for the title along with the gameplay reveal. 

The annual Gamescom show has slowly grown to become one of the most-recognized gaming events in the industry; it makes sense for the devs to choose it to showcase new exclusive gameplay. It is also possible that Pearl Abyss finalizes the release date for Crimson Desert alongside the planned footage in the Gamescom show. Crimson Desert is slated for a launch on PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X.

The Gamescom event will start from Wednesday, Aug 23, to Sunday, Aug 27. It will feature a variety of other titles like the usual norm. Regardless, Geoff Keighley affirmed that this year is going to mostly emphasize giving updates on known entries instead of new IPs and games. The upcoming Gamescom show will likely be smaller than the previous year, but a pinch of Crimson Desert gameplay will serve as a fantastic entree to its roster.
