Cursed is a new TV series released on Netflix just this month, focusing on a retelling of the legend of King Arthur. Thus it came as a surprise when Black Desert Online revealed that it was set to launch a crossover with Cursed. The crossover is set to offer a new Cursed-themed questline that is going to be available to all platforms.

The mobile version of Black Desert has actually already launched the new content, which is now available to all players. For the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions, the Cursed content is set to be released on August 5.

Meanwhile, the Cursed content is going to be released to Black Desert Online for the PC on July 29. In celebration of this new content, they’re offering something interesting to PC players. To ensure that a lot of people get the chance to take part in this crossover, Black Desert Online is going to be available to download for free here. New players that manage to reach level 50 before August 5 get the basic package. That means they get the game, at least the basic version, for free.

Before we discuss a little more about the new crossover, many of you are probably wondering what Cursed is all about. Well it’s actually based on a book of the same name by Frank Miller and Tom Wheeler. It offers a re-imagination of the Arthurian legend with the story told through the eyes of Nimue, the one whose destiny is to become the Lady of the Lake.

In Black Desert Online's Cursed event, players are handed a mysterious new quest which focuses on Nimue and the Red Paladins, who have been transported to the world of Black Desert. Players need to protect Nimue against the Red Paladin while helping her find a way back to her own world.

Once the quest is successfully finished, players receive tokens which can then be exchanged for special in-game items.

Black Desert Online is a MMORPG released to the PC in 2015. The console versions are simply known as Black Desert and were released in 2019. Black Desert Mobile was also launched in 2019.
