Will fantasy win the day, or will they fall to the forces of steampunk?
Snail games announced today that their upcoming steampunk/fantasy MMORPG, Black Gold Online, will enter Closed Beta beginning today at 2PM PDT. This phase will end on May 28.
Jim Tsai, Vice President of Snail Games USA has stated, “Following our successful launch of Age of Wushu in 2013, Black Gold Online arrives as an important next step for our emergence in the North American market. Our Closed Alpha period saw incredible player participation and useful feedback, which we’ve taken into consideration as the game continues progression. Closed Beta opens the floodgates even more for player eligibility, which means a more complete game experience for players to test and for our development team to evaluate as we look toward the game’s summer launch.”
The game combines fantasy and neo-Victorian steampunk, featuring two factions caught up in the epic struggle for supremacy. The side of fantasy features the land of Erlandir, a realm of naturalist magic and mythical beasts. Struggling against Erlander is Isenhorst, a mechanized society that utilizes engineering and mechanized equipment to gain an advantage in battle.
Which side will you join?
