Black Prophecy Expands, Americanises

Free to play - and frankly fairly okay - space shooter MMO Black Prophecy has expanded today. The expansion is called EPISODE 1: INFERNO IN TULIMA, and I think it is called that to make it sound exciting. The trailer, which you can see below, is also clearly designed to make it seem exciting. I don't know what is going on here, but it seems…

Black Prophecy Devs Address Community

Free-to-play space MMO Black Prophecy is actually fairly interesting. I played through the prologue, but had to move on to other things before I really got stuck into the main world. It's impressively pretty, and the mouse-keyboard space combat controls are surprisingly action-oriented. I did get splatted attempting to higher level missions with RPS chums, however, so I suspect that linear level ladder might be…

Black Prophecy Live In Europe

Germanic space-action MMO Black Prophecy is now live, and free to play. I've not had a chance to play this yet, but I surely will. My sources tell me that the action is solid enough, but much of the MMO side of the game remains superfluous or wonky, which would be a shame, if true. It certainly looks pretty, at least. Anyone else got any…

Watch This Space: Black Prophecy Footage

Troubled action space-MMO Black Prophecy seems to have had a fairly good showing at GamesCom 2010, and both trailer and off-screen wobblecam footage of the demo (via MMOReviews) suggest that it is looking like one of the most promising free-to-play games in Gamigo's rapidly-swelling portfolio. The "real" flight model combined with persistent world stuff might just make this a viable alternative for all those folks…

Black Prophecy Dodges Debt Death

Promising-looking space-MMO Black Prophecy would be breathing a sigh of relief - if unreleased games could breathe - as the cashflow problems brought developer Reakktor Media into insolvency have been sorted out, for now. The announcement explains: "The insolvency plan, suggested by insolvency administrator Rainer M. Baehr, was accepted by all creditors. Due to the support of a solvent investor, the financial reorganization of the…

Black Prophecy Cockpit Detail

This is a fairly specific aspect of the forthcoming space-combat MMO, but I think it's a fun one. Plenty of people have said something like "I wish there was a space MMO with real-time, Elite-style ship controls", and now we have two coming in at once. Black Prophecy, from Reakktor, and Jumpgate: Evolution, from Net Devil. Both companies have had dodgy MMOs in their past,…

Interview: Reakktor Talk Black Prophecy

Having raised a collective eyebrow at the few glimpses of space MMO Black Prophecy that have emerged over the past few months, we thought it might be time to have a quick chat with Reakktor Media's community manager Chris Schuett. Beyond the jump Schuett discusses the real-time combat nature of the game, and claims that player starships in the game could have "millions" of possible…

Voiceover Dude Is Scaring Me: Black Prophecy

The voiceover guy for the new Black Prophecy trailer sounds like he's going to burst out my speakers and recruit me directly into his interstellar crusade. Calm down, mate! The trailer apparently shows combat between the two main factions in the game, as well as the obligatory spooky alien faction at the end: The Restorers. Woo. We'll hopefully have an interview with the team behind…

Black Prophecy Beta And Space Glitter

While spaceship chumps like myself are generally gearing up for both next week's Eve patch and the Jumpgate Evolution beta a few weeks later, those aren't the only space MMO excitements on the horizon. There's another visually impressive offering incoming from German development studio, Reakktor Media (of Neocron fame). The Black Prophecy website has just been relaunched, complete with a lovely beta sign up form…
