Black Desert Online Maintenance and Problems

Black Desert Online (BDO) is a stunningly beautiful MMORPG that oozes class and obvious thrills by Pearl Abyss, but now and then this sandbox game can be an issue for players especially when the servers go own for scheduled or unscheduled maintenance.

If you are a player on either of these platforms being PlayStation 4, Xbox One or Microsoft Windows and experiencing any issues at all we would love for you to report your status. This game is always being maintained, which means players find that the servers go offline, and this is why we have set this page up so you can check this page when Black Desert Online servers are down.

Other problems do occur other than maintenance! If this is the case for you let us know what platform you’re playing on along with your troubles.

  • Harry

    Patch Notes were released and now Black Desert Online is down again for me, something about additional maintenance.

  • Alex

    This is frustrating because they could have announced the additional maintenance beforehand instead of after it has happened, warning guys is what we need.

  • Jessie

    The Black Desert Online maintenance started around 2 hours ago and is apparently going to offline for like 8 hours. They are hoping to finish around 16:00 UTC / 17:00 CET / 09:00 PST / 12:00 EDT.

  • Kaine

    The maintenance is an extended one for technical problems.

  • Mark

    black desert maintenance today is going to last up to 7 hours, that’s crazy being offline that long.

  • Lawrence

    Seeing as Black Desert is going to be doing maintenance for 5 to 7 hours today May 18, is there any chance you could release the patch notes.

  • Jamie

    The Black Desert maintenance is now over but what was it for? Maybe more content, thought not.

  • Melissa

    Maintenance lasted around 2.5 hours and whats new? I guess nothing as usual.

  • WyreZ

  • Rhiannon Fitzgerald

    I wish that if it was maintenance that it would say that someplace in big flashing letters. It was up when I last checked about 8 ish when I set up for afk angling. Now I tried to check on my epheria sailboat building and it’s down barely an hour later. WTF I heard they got ddos attacked last week I was thinking maybe the f*ktards were at it again. People that do that crap need to get a life, just because you’re unhappy why do you have the need to ruin my fun for heaven’s sakes, plus you just put my boat out another day too.

  • Rhiannon Fitzgerald

    Well back up now, staying up, no explanation maybe we get a goodie?

  • Peter

    Black desert Online has now change to Offline due to a 4 hour scheduled maintenance to add a pvp server, and yes the beer festival will start.

  • Deadliest TicTac

    unable to connect to server… after update >< frustrating because some servers show crowded and not seeing anyone else having issues

  • Scramsax

    Its down rite now.. No information excepting the barebones comment on twitter by BDO News extending the so called maintenance several times.

    For a basic maintenance with no game changes supposed to be implemented one can rly wonder what they are at.

  • Kyle

    They say the BDO servers are back online but not for me.

  • Tobias

    I downloaded the new patch on steam and now seem to be getting error code 12. Is this another bug in the system or what…
