Black Prophecy Officially Launches in Europe

Many sci-fi gamers have followed the development of Black Prophecy for years, and today marks the space combat MMOG’s long-awaited release–in Europe, at least. Closed beta testing is scheduled to begin in the near future for players in North America.

Patrick Streppel, Executive Board Member at Black Prophecy’s publisher, Gamigo Games, said:

There’s no doubt for us that Black Prophecy will mix things up in the MMO gaming world. It will breathe new life into the space combat genre and such elaborate production has also never been seen before in the free-to-play market.

Did I see a reference to EVE Online?

Kirk Lenke, CEO of the game‘s developer, Reakktor Media, said:

With the launch of Black Prophecy, the most comprehensive, exciting and ambitious project in the long history of our team is going live. All this is the result of the hard work of an extremely dedicated and talented group of people.

The launch of this high-quality free-to-play game proves that we have met the high expectations set for Black Prophecy. We’re looking forward to seeing lots of players in the game and to hearing the feedback from community members that have been with us for years as well as from new fans. We hope players will enjoy the game as much as our team does.

Black Prophecy promises to immediately draw players into frenzied space combat while immersing them in a rich backstory told through cutscenes. Players can complete hundreds of PvE and PvP missions and form clans to collect resources and build their own clan station.

. State-of-the-art graphics

From the same folks that did Neocron? No thanks. Will most likely follow that same “Great idea poorly implemented” pattern.
