The first major content update for Black Prophecy is on its way with Episode 1: Inferno in Tulima and will be released sometime in July.
Episode 1 introduces a new region known as Enzo’s Enigmatic Emporium of Exotic Elegance, which will be open to players at levels 15 and higher and will act as the hub for new missions. It will also used by dubious dealers as a marketplace for goods of all sorts.
New “bound sectors” are also introduced where players must complete prior sectors before continuing to the next. Some passages will be guarded by particularly strong opponents that can only be defeated by a group of pilots in order to progress.
The communication system is also being re-worked and will be based on standard instant messenger systems. Players can recognize their friends by their avatar and talk to them in a separate window. The new in-game e-mail system also permits sending items by cash on delivery to other players.
Other new features include:
- New jobs
- New story missions
- New dynamic missions
- New open world sectors
- Changes to the reward system in PvP
- New weapon type
- New offensive and defensive special skills that make battles even more exciting
Currently the update is only for EU player as the NA version is still in open beta. For more information head over to the Black Prophecy website.
