Black Desert Online Introduces its First Dungeon: The Last Stronghold, Atoraxxion
In what is arguably one of its most important updates – pretty much in the history of the entire games life up until this point, Pearl Abyss have revealed the first official dungeon: “The Last Stronghold, Atoraxxion,” a fully fleshed out co-operative dungeon that you can enter and run with other players.
Gone are the days where you spend all your time out in the world farming monsters.. or other players. Welcome to.. Well, okay, there’s only one dungeon right now but the sheer depth of the dungeon looks very promising. It has multiple individual thematic biomes, has an extensive cooperative system in place requiring players solve various puzzles, and large bosses ready to tear into you. Honestly, it’s pretty extensive and honestly gives us a great look into the direction the popular MMO is going.
And it’s a promising future, at that. New classes, new regions, new awakenings. And most importantly.. the addition of actual game features and mechanics, things that are sorely needed to keep player retention at their heights. This dungeon introduction is enough to get both Mrs Stix and I back into the game, for sure.
