Over the past weekend, the Black Desert Online development team announced that it is working on a new battle royale survival mode for the game. Each of the mode’s 50 players begin the fight as a Black Spirit, then must work to find a “fallen adventurer and possess it”.

As is the norm for battle royale games, the last player standing is declared the winner.
