From developer Pearl Abyss, Black Desert saw its Western release take place in May 2018. It might be a bit of an old game, and normally, you would have to pay to experience the living-world MMORPG. Now, you can get Black Desert for free on Steam for a limited time, but if you claim this freebie before the offer ends, it will be yours to keep forever; or at least until the inevitable robot uprising occurs and dooms us all.

In any case, this article tells you exactly how you can get Black Desert for free on PC via Steam, so you can experience the fast-paced, action-packed combat, fight with friends, conquer castles, fish, trade, cook and craft, to name but a few activities.
