Black Prophecy NA Launches

Black Prophecy is now live in North America, announces gamigo, saying the space-based free-to-play MMOG has completed a successful open beta test. Here's a bit on the game:

Players can choose to join one of the two factions: the genetically-perfected Genides or the cybernetically-optimized Tyi. Whichever side they choose, there's lots to be done in the vast endlessness of space. 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.

It's a decent shooter and that's pretty much all it is. Flight model is very arcade-like. Those looking for an actual sim will not find it.

Crafting is simplistic in the extreme, to the point I wouldn't even call it that.

Exploration is non-existent from what I saw of the beta.

PvP is apparently non-consensual once you leave the prologue (level 6 or so I think it was). Trying to complete PvE missions in open world zones was a trial with higher level roving gangs of gankers making things unenjoyable.

I'm not really into forced PvP so this was a game killer for me personally. I can see why they do it because without it the game has no longevity otherwise, but I think even people who do like PvP will find the unrestricted gankage will get old, fast.

 
I don't always drink carbonated Mexican rat piss, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis.
