It's been more than a year since we launched The Great Expedition. First off, we'd like to thank all our adventurers who continue to show their love and support for this content.

Until now, Black Desert Online's ocean content mainly consisted of seeking profit through barter while defeating monsters such as Hekaru or Pirate Ships. However, many adventurers who were expecting a wild naval battle with enormous carracks have expressed their disappointment. Hence, starting with this update, we are planning to add monster zones in which you can experience the immense power of the carracks. Here, you will feel the full power of the carracks and be rewarded for your efforts.
