Our MMORPG.com team is on the floor during the craziness that is the Game Developers' Conference. Drew Wood had the opportunity to check out Black Prophecy as it is embarking on the European open beta and has thoughts to share about what he saw. Check out Drew's Black Prophecy GDC Preview and let us know what you think in the comments below.
All comparisons aside, let me dive into the thick of what Black Prophecy is. When we look at Black Prophecy, you're looking at a Space-Combat (which means in your ships), action oriented MMORPG. The game is rooted in a deep background story, cut scenes, voice over and everything that we've come to expect from games that put the story forward first. The entirety of the game, aside from when you're collecting missions and the like, takes place in your ship, in space. The action is heavy, intense and, can occassionally, be a little confusing as there's simply so much going on on the screen at once. That being said, the game looks good. The graphics and the visuals are lovely, run very smoothly, and are dynamic and not exactly the same as anything else that is out there.
