Black Desert Online (opens in new tab) developers Pearl Abyss and Kakao Games, have announced that their Korean MMO is getting a new expansion entitled 'Drieghan,' arriving on November 14.

Also known as 'the land of dragons,' Drieghan is the ancestral home of the dwarves and players will be able to explore this new, mountainous area, including Duvencrune, the dwarven capital. The expansion will introduce new monster areas, including ‘Tshira Ruins,’ ‘Sherekhan's Grave’, and ‘Blood Wolf Town,' as well as over 300 new quests, new story content, and a new world boss, Garmoth, The Crimson Dragon. 

The trailer doesn't give a lot away but we do get a look at a rather bleak town, a mucky-looking swamp, and some formidable mountain passes—as well as a glimpse at what seems to be Garmoth.

Drieghan is set for release on November 14. Meanwhile, if you're thinking about checking out Black Desert Online, we have some handy tips to get you started (opens in new tab).

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
