And it's got customizable horses and plenty of room to ride them, for another. It lags a bit more than I'd like, even w...

Black Desert is not a game that can be faulted for lack of ambition. A recent interview with the design staff helps show off just how big the game aims to be, which includes territory control, building relationships with NPCs, and an open-world housing system with a limited number of houses.

Apart from the nightmare of Twitter spam that the recent two Lord of the Rings Online dev chats have produced, I'm pretty happy that Turbine's being more interactive with the community and taking on some of these topics head-on.

Outside of revamps (which are always needed as games age and don't really count) there's been almo...
