Out of respect for tragedy in Korea.
Black Desert Online today announced the early termination of its Halloween event. The announcement comes in response to a tragedy that unfolded in South Korea over the weekend where at least 153 people were killed in a stampede in Seoul during a Halloween party gone horribly wrong with another 133 injured.
The entire announcement is posted below. The event was originally intended to go on until November 9 but will instead end on November 2 during maintenance.
