Crimson Desert Overview

Join Macduff and his band of battle-hardened mercenaries as they try to survive in the dangerous and unforgiving lands of Pywel, in Crimson Desert. Explore a vast, war-torn, but breathtaking world inspired by real-world locations such as Scotland and other non-European areas that break away from the usual medieval fantasy mold. Experience the game solo in the epic single-player campaign or join other players in a more traditional MMORPG format. As a pre-dominantly PvE-focused game, Crimson Desert will feature a variety of dungeons and raids that will require teamwork and cooperation from every member of the group. The game will also include PvP elements to satisfy the PvP crowd.
