They’ve landed. What, aliens? No, not this time, anyways. This week, Gamigo has seen fit to beam down 100 Closed Beta keys for our loyal Crunch visitors! If you’re curious about this fast-paced space combat MMO, head on over to our beta key giveaway page to grab your pilot’s license. After that, sign up here and register your beta key here. Done!
Let’s cover some of the basics: in Black Prophecy, your player character is represented by an extensively customizable ship, which will evolve as you make your way through the game world. In contrast to EvE Online, this game fosters a more traditional skill-based progression that does not require months of time investment. For players who couldn’t get into the highly detailed (and slightly monotonous) gameplay of EvE, Black Prophecy may be the droid you’re looking for. Human avatars are not planned for launch, but Gamigo has made it clear that they will consider such implementations further down the line.
The Black Prophecy Closed Beta is set to launch in April, so keep checking back for updates!

Black Prophecy uses the latest in graphics technology to produce breathtaking visuals.
FAST-PACED ACTION COMBAT
Black Prophecy is more action-oriented than a traditional space simulation. We are trying to avoid long travel times or other activities where the player isn’t really doing anything.
EXCITING PLAYER VS. PLAYER COMBAT
Black Prophecy allows players to organize big PvP battles and also offers varied PvP missions.
Black Prophecy’s universe, story and background has been created by the award-winning Sci-Fi author Michael Marrak.
MODULAR SHIP DESIGN
Player ships are not sold as whole, but instead consist of modules like cockpits, wings, engines etc. All these modules are available in different shapes and sizes, which allows the players to customize their ships.
ITEM MODIFICATION SYSTEM
In addition to the modular ship design, players can also further customize their ships by adding modifications to their ship’s modules and weapons.
MODULAR CLAN STATION SYSTEM
Player clans can build clan stations that are expandable through a module system. Different modules add different functionalities to the station.
Clans can fight each other to conquer resource stations.
AWARD AND MEDAL SYSTEM
Similar to an achievement system, players can earn medals and awards for performing specific tasks.
Players can learn and execute breakneck flight maneuvers.
