When will Black Desert Online 32-bit support end?

32-bit operating systems will no longer be supported by Black Desert Online from Wednesday, February 1st.

Most players will not be affected by the changes because Pearl Abyss has analyzed the data and determined that they use 64-bit systems and at least DirectX 11. In a similar move, other studios have modernized and ended support for old systems, freeing developers to utilize their capabilities without having to deal with old systems. The support for DirectX 9 isn’t officially over, but they still recommend that you update to DirectX 11.

Latest Update

With this week’s update, several classes now have more control over their animations. To make movement feel a little more natural, they have revamped some basic movements like forwarding, backwarding, or turning left or right, along with improved animations that correspond to them. In addition to Shai, Archer, Guardian, Hashashin, Nova, Corsair, Sage, Drakania, and Woosa, this update affects the following classes.

Some of the changes and fixes in addition to the usual round of balance adjustments and fixes are particularly noteworthy, including a detailed pass for Drakania Awakening. Her forms have been updated differently, with skill tweaks to differentiate their feel. The Hexblood form is enhanced with more precision for repeated strikes, and the Dragonblood form is enhanced with more power and feel.

Besides the opening of the new season of Arena of Solare in this week’s update, there are several other highlights in the update. The opening follows a pre-season in which new characters were introduced, a new match system was introduced, and new Battlefields were introduced, so now the season is underway and all ranks will remain unchanged. 

You can even get new outfits and titles if you perform well in matches, along with other Rewards. You can also prepare for competition by playing practice mode.


What is 32-bit support?

32-bit support refers to the ability of a game to run on a computer with a 32-bit operating system (OS) and/or to utilize 32-bit hardware and software. Some older games may only have 32-bit support, while newer games may support both 32-bit and 64-bit systems. In general, 64-bit systems are more powerful and efficient than 32-bit systems, so many games are now moving away from 32-bit support in favor of 64-bit.
