The Black Gold Online site has been updated with a new developer diary that centers around what the team believes is a unique approach to PvP in the forthcoming steampunk MMO. Called "Battle Carriers", the system involves players in large-scale ground combat with both mounted and foot soldiers taking part.
Black Gold Online features over a 100 distinct Battle Carriers, with a wide variety of unique abilities and weaponry. These Carriers fall into 5 basic classes: Raid, Assault, Siege, Aerial and Anti-air. Each class has special attack bonuses against others, as well as particular traits that make each matchup different and challenging.
“Every Carrier is different – there is no top dog. They’re fast or slow, both in movement and reloading. They can dish out a heavy payload or pepper the enemy with rapid, light fire. They get in close to attack or sit back. It makes things get pretty interesting.”.
