It wasn’t on the list of PlayStation 4 games that won’t work on the PlayStation 5, so naturally free-to-play MMO Black Desert Online will play on Sony’s next-gen console. There had been some scepticism after the company effectively confirmed backwards compatibility with Xbox Series S|X, but failed to do the same for the PS5.
That’s since been rectified courtesy of the following statement:
There were concerns for quite some time that PS5 wouldn’t have backwards compatibility with all PS4 software, but those worries have been eradicated, with just ten or so titles failing to function on the new console. More importantly, as long as you use the same PlayStation Network account, all of your progress in Black Desert Online will carry across to Sony’s new system as well.
