Black Desert Online: New account needed for Steam

Kakao Games and Pearl Abyss recently announced that Black Desert Online (BDO) will be made available on Steam on May 24, to players in North America and Europe. In a ‘Black Desert Online Steam’ FAQ posted on the BDO forums – they announced that sadly, all Steam players will require a new BDO account, meaning that players with existing accounts will not be able to sync their accounts with a Steam account.

Other notable FAQ answers include:

  • if you purchase the game on Steam a one-time BDO account registration step during the initial game start will be required which will give access to the game’s website ‘My Account’ page, Help Desk, and Forums
  • Steam players will be playing on the same servers as BDO accounts
  • Steam wallets can be used to purchase Daum Cash and/or Pearl Items
