Black Prophecy Officially Live…in Europe

The long awaited space combat MMORPG Black Prophecy today officially blasted off.  It is open to all players, but currently the only servers available are located in Europe.  Players from North America who participated in the closed beta will be able to play on European servers, but for the rest of us, we’ll have to wait until the NA servers go online, which should be within 48 hrs.

I’ve been waiting on this for quite some time, so I’m pretty excited.  I think I can make 48 hrs.  Black Prophecy is free to play.

Check out the official launch trailer for Black Prophecy.

Patrick Streppel, Executive Board Member at gamigo, said this:

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.

Kirk Lenke, CEO of Reakktor Media, said this:

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.”

Players can choose to join one of the two factions: the genetically-perfected Genides or the cybernetically-optimized Tyi.  Besides the story missions that unveil the plot, players can also complete hundreds of action-packed PvE and PvP missions or group up to form clans. Together they can collect resources and build their own clan station, which can then be expanded upon with a variety of different modules. Ships can also be customized to suit each player’s preferences using some of the countless building parts available.
