'Black Gold Online' Accepting Closed Alpha Sign-ups

by Rainier on March 20, 2014 @ 8:54 a.m. PDT

Inspired by the myths and fairytales throughout Northern Europe, Black Gold combines fantasy with gothic steampunk taking place in a world fighting over the precious material.

On one side, players will be able to experience a world of fantasy, filled with magic drawn from the life and nature found around the ancient jungles and temples of the terrain. The other is the world of Steam, a mechanized society of giant walking cities, which utilizes engineering and mechanized equipment to gain supremacy.

Players will be able to trigger more than 3,000 dynamic events and actions that can change the game world itself. Additionally, characters will have the ability to change forms and drive giant armors in combat, creating a variety of fun and different encounters for both PvE and PvP experiences.

Using the same propriety Flexi engine that created the visually stunning world in Age of Wushu, Snail Games has incorporated the technology to make dynamic shadows and vivid colors in the surreal world of Black Gold

 Snail Games will launch the Black Gold Online Closed Alpha testing period  today, March 20, at 2:00 PM PDT. Eligible players will be able to access the game's Closed Alpha from March 20 to March 30.

Players can explore and experience the various content within  Black Gold Online's Closed Alpha, including a large number of quests, eight different classes across different factions, crafting, vehicle construction, faction vs. faction battlegrounds, and open-world PvP. As the game is currently in development, players will be experiencing an earlier Alpha version of the game and are encouraged to provide any and all constructive feedback to Snail Games for improvements to  Black Gold Online.

Snail Games will be distributing access keys on a wider scale as  Black Gold Online approaches its Closed Beta testing period later this year.
