By the mid 26th century humanity has conquered the universe and colonized countless planets. Yet life in space requires a great deal of adaptation. Bred for just these conditions, the cybernetically adapted Tyi and the biogenetically optimized Geniden have outgrown their creators to become the new ruling races. Their uncompromising battle for total mastery of space leads humanity into the sphere of influence of an ancient alien life form – a life form which tolerates no other cosmic civilizations but its own. In this battle against an overpowering enemy, players must first choose which of the two rival factions they wish to join as they try to save humanity.
The fascinating science-fiction universe from “Black Prophecy” will present players a complex online universe featuring cinema-quality space battles. A universe in which they fly their spacecraft alone, as a clan member or as part of a fleet as they fight political battles and prove themselves in the fight against extinction at the hands of the aliens. The search for their home world and the answer to their dark secret soon becomes a race to save all the races of mankind.
In addition to many roll-playing game elements and a comprehensive resource-management system the tactically demanding “Black Prophecy” also offers a tremendous depth of play and spectacular deep-space action for the PC.
Arriving in early September, Black Prophecy - Episode 2: Species War upgrades the PvP experience by adding an all new warzone feature. In it, opposing player factions will face off against one another in epic dogfights, each vying for control of an opponent's warzone outpost. Those victorious will reap such high rewards as major XP and the ability to trade their earnings for exclusive upgrade blueprints that can only be found in warzone hubs. As more outposts are won, the player's faction will earn greater individual and group powers, which will aid them in reaching the ultimate goal of total domination of the known universe.
Of course, like any great battle, there is much more of this story to be told.
