Apparently someone must have sprinkled magical beta dust in the virtual MMOG oceans, as this has been a very busy month so far for betas. Joining the ranks of beta kicker-offers today is Black Gold Online which is now officially in Open Beta.
According to our freinds over at Snail Games, Open Beta will feature a more refined, patched version compared to the recent closed beta test. The official press release also contains a list of features that players will be able to cosume like packs of hungry zombeavers during the open beta:
- Marvelous Art Direction - Black Gold Online creates a visually stunning world, mixing Steam punk with high fantasy in a clash of styles. Join the war as one of 6 races from the two rival factions.
- Unique Carrier Gameplay - Ride into battle astride powerful Battle Carriers. Develop your own Carrier and join forces in large-scale mounted battlefields by land and air. Battle for Control of the Land - Battle fellow players, join guilds, and march on the battlefield in Black Gold Online’s rich PvP system. Fight as one of 12 distinct classes in high-speed, action combat.
In addition to the open beta launch, a retail version of Black Gold Online, Conqueror’s Edition becomes available today at GameStop, Amazon, BestBuy, Wal-Mart and Fred Meyer for $19.99.
