Description : After downloading today’s update, installing it, and resetting my console, when launching Black Desert the first time, a patch was downloaded and completed. A message advised me to “restart the game”, so I exited to dashboard and quit Black Desert.
After waiting a minute or so, I launched the game again. The patch downloads again, and I see the message saying “Notice - Failed to download additional data. Please try again later.” This happens EVERY TIME the game is started.
The patch download issue referenced above prevents character/server selection. The game redownloads the patch abd does not advance past the point when the patch was being verified. I have sat at the patch verification screen for well over 10 minutes, and it still has not completed.
Due to this issue, the game has become completely unplayable.
