In a press release
issued today, Snail Games
announced that the closed beta for its steampunkish MMO Black Gold Online
will begin on May 15th. Says the release,
Closed Beta participants will see large-scale battlegrounds with customizable 'Carriers' (large battle mounts for each faction) and can develop over 100 distinct carrier-types for battle. Black Gold Online also features true hardcore PvP, where players can fight against members of their same faction as well as opposing forces across a variety of battlegrounds, arenas and 'Chambers of Greed.' Finally, players can join even larger Energy Well battles as they form armies to fight for control of precious resources in large-scale faction and guild battles.
The closed beta will also include revamped graphics and a refreshed interface. We've embedded the latest trailer below!
