E3 2013 - Black Gold en cinématique

En attendant « prochainement » un bêta-test occidental, Black Gold Online dévoile son univers steampunk et son contenu en vidéos, entre cinématique et bande-annonce de gameplay.

En bref. Actuellement en bêta-test en Chine, Black Gold se prépare à accueillir aussi des testeurs occidentaux - dans le cadre d'une bêta de sept jours prévue « prochainement » et dont les accès sont actuellement distribués à l'E3. D'ici là, le MMORPG steampunk se dévoile au travers d'une cinématique posant les bases de la trame du jeu, en plus d'illustrer son gameplay.



On le sait, Black Gold Online s'articule autour de la quête d'une ressource précieuse, l'or noir du titre. Longtemps, les Erlandirs (un peuple vivant en harmonie avec les forces naturelles) ont cherché à le contrôler pour augmenter la puissance de leur sorcellerie. Et depuis peu, les peuples d'Isenhorst l'exploitent aussi pour alimenter leurs forges et leur machine. La quête du Black Gold engendre néanmoins des tensions, jusqu'au jour où des Erlandris furent attaqués, manifestement par des habitants d'Isenhorst.
Un fait anecdotique peut néanmoins parfois avoir des répercussions d'envergure et les Erlandirs les plus belliqueux réclament vengeance, faisant fi des mises en garde des anciens. Ils en appellent au Dieu-Soleil et à sa puissance pour frapper durement le royaume d'Isenhorst... Evidemment l'assaut exige une contre-attaque et la guerre éclate. Et ce n'est que le commencement d'un conflit d'envergure.

Les joueurs de Black Gold Online devront choisir leur faction et s'affronteront grâce à la magie ou à leurs machines, pourront combiner leur pouvoir pour gagner en puissance ou encore utiliser des montures et véhicules d'envergure (dans un gameplay façon FPS en prenant le contrôle de créatures ou de méchas de combat). On le découvre en vidéo.

Conan O'Brien Appears at Snail Games E3 Booth

Day 2 of E3 has ended at the Snail Games booth, but not before Conan O’Brien had a chance to make a surprise appearance!

We have no doubt in our minds that he came to check out our games, but for some reason he spent more time posing with our cosplay girls… Anyway, check out the pictures below and see the man himself being surrounded by multiple beauties, which of course is a natural, everyday occurrence.





Thanks for coming Coco, you’re welcome back any time!

PS: Give us a call the next time you visit China!

E3 Demo Detailed Review

Check out the biggest dose of Black Gold yet! Even if you can’t stop by our E3 booth and play first-hand, don’t miss out on all the mech-riding and magic-casting action with this detailed demo review!

Character Creation

Like most MMORPGs, the magic starts at the character creation screen. Choose from one of the two currently available races: the Humans of the Steam Faction or the Kosh of the Magic Faction, then decide on a class to decimate the other side. In the demo, only two of the three basic classes are unlocked, but after being promoted into one of three advanced classes, plenty of choices and unique play styles exist, including ranged tanks and melee magic users.

Afterwards, a detailed character customization screen will greet players and those who appreciate it can edit a large number of facial features, including the ability to change angle, location, size, length, and even space interval of certain details. Players who aren’t so much into customization can choose from a few basic templates, or even click the random button until they find an acceptable look.

Once the game starts, a video briefly explains why the world of Black Gold is at war and the reasoning behind each faction’s hostility. The demo is limited to a few starting zones and quests, but more of the game’s lore and background is revealed with each quest and step taken towards the middle of the continent, where the ongoing war is the fiercest.

High Level Content

Those looking to jump straight into the game’s higher level content can talk to a special E3 NPC, which lets players jump to level 40, choose an advanced class, and purchase high-level gear. Advanced classes differ greatly from the basic classes and come with their own set of skills. At level 40, players can choose from 6 of 16 active skills to create a play style that is vastly different to others of the same class.

With their new gear equipped and skills set up, players can then fly to a special zone for a glimpse of Black Gold’s world PvE.

PvE – World Bosses

The demo contains two unique world bosses, one from each faction. A variety of movement patterns and attack skills test the player’s reactions and even at level 40, they can hardly be considered a walk in the park. Dodging became essential in avoiding special attacks, but continuous use would quickly deplete the player’s dodge value, leaving them unable to evade attacks until after the bar slowly recharges.

PvP - Arena

Finally, players looking for a little competitive action can head to the Battle Arena, where the two factions are pit against each other in small team battles. Fights are not done with the characters themselves, however, as different vehicles are available around the arena, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. In order to win, players must be able to coordinate and use different strategies accordingly against the other team. For example: One of the Steam Faction mechs is fast-moving and defense oriented, but has weak fire power. While not the first mech of choice for most, it’s perfect against one of the Magic Faction mounts, which has a long-ranged mortar, but is relatively slow.

Although it was only a small glimpse of the Black Gold world, reactions from the E3 booth were overwhelmingly positive. If you like what you saw as well, be sure to keep an eye on the Black Gold website for future updates!

Beta Comes Closer for E3 Visitors

The Black Gold Online wait just became a lot shorter for many lucky E3-goers! We’re not just talking about being able to freely test the demo version at our booths; we’re talking about the lucky visitors who managed to walk away with Black Gold Activation Codes!

When the time comes, these precious codes will allow access to a 7 day trial of the game’s English closed beta. Unfortunately we don't have a date set yet, but when it happens, the world of Black Gold is yours to explore!

So how would one acquire said activation codes? The hard part is to be present at E3. The easy part is to simply head over to our booth and play one of our games! That’s not so bad, right?

Black Gold à l'assaut de l'Occident

Black Gold Online profitera de l'E3 2013 pour se dévoiler au travers d'une démo jouable. Pour ceux ne faisant pas le déplacement, le MMO fantasy / steampunk se dote d'un site officiel occidental et fera l'objet de retransmissions en streaming.

Déjà bien implanté en Chine, le groupe Snail Games (déjà à l'origine du MMO d'arts martiaux Age of Wushu) lorgne maintenant vers l'Occident : Age of Wushu est ainsi déjà officiellement disponible sur le continent nord-américain et le studio entend poursuivre sa stratégie en localisant aussi le reste de son catalogue.

Dans cette optique, Snail Games sera présent à partir de demain mardi 11 juin à Los Angeles à l'occasion de l'E3 2013 pour présenter ses jeux en ligne et MMO à venir aux joueurs occidentaux - notamment son MMORPG Black Gold Online (opposant deux factions, l'une fantasy, l'autre aux allures steampunk) et son RPG d'action Solar Tempest.

Au cours de l'E3, les curieux pourront s'essayer à la démo jouable de Black Gold Online (illustrant le PvE et le PvP du MMORPG, incarnant un Kosh, adepte du dieu-soleil, ou un Bubont, sorte d'humain féru de science et de technologie).

Snail Games entend intensifier sa visibilité en Occident, mais pour les pauvres hères ne faisant pas le déplacement sur la côte ouest des Etats-Unis, le groupe en profite tout autant pour étoffer sa présence en ligne. Parallèlement à l'E3, Black Gold Online se dévoile maintenant au travers d'un site officiel traduit en anglais (où les curieux pourront d'ores et déjà s'inscrire en vue des prochaines phases de bêta-test en Occident - alors qu'elles viennent tout juste d'être lancées en Chine) ou encore découvrir le jeu, au travers de live stream.

On se souvient que la localisation d'Age of Wushu s'était révélée particulièrement laborieuse, en plus d'être plusieurs fois retardée (on attend toujours le MMO d'arts martiaux en Occident). Manifestement, Snail Games n'entend pas réitérer l'expérience pour Black Gold.

First Look - E3 2013 Demo

Black Gold, the highly anticipated steam-punk MMORPG is heading to the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) next week.

  

Set in a fantasy world split between magic and machine, an epic battle wages between the two factions over a mysterious energy source known as Black Gold. One side fighting to claim it as a fuel source to power a Steam Society and their mechanical instruments of war, the other manipulates it for their arts of healing and sorcery connected to the living world itself.

Located in Booth #5222 in the West Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center, visitors will be given a first look at Snail Games’ new MMORPG and can dive straight into the ongoing conflict between technology and magic.

Two of the six races will be available during the E3 demo: The Kosh, who harness the power of the elements granted by the Sun God. The other is the Bubont, humans who cast off the old ways of worship to pursue science and technology. Each Race will have two classes, each with their own set of three sub-classes offering a wide variety of playable options for only two core classes and races.


Players will be able to experience the game’s PvE and PvP content. They can team up with other demo stations and battle three different bosses or enter a PvP fight that pits faction against faction (Steam vs. Fantasy) in a battle featuring mechs and battle mounts.

Keep an eye on the Snail Games official site (http://www.snailgamesusa.com) for more news in the coming days, and be sure to visit us at Booth #5222 in the West Hall if you’re attending E3!

Meet the Steam Users of Isenhorst

Come and take a closer look at the denizens of Black Gold. Today, we introduce the steam and tech-crazy races from the Kingdom of Isenhorst and who better to start off with than the dwarves!

Denizens of the Kingdom of Isenhorst

    Dwarves

The Dwarves of can be found all throughout the Eastern Continent, but it is from their capital of Cadia that they dominate Isenhorst. Long ago casting off what they saw as the servile worship of Gods, they developed Steam technology to staggering new heights. Faith in tools built the formidable Steam Castle, a Black Gold-fueled bastion of power, asserting Dwarven power throughout the land.

    Buvont

      A wildly curious and imaginative race, the Buvont humans cast off the old ways of worship to pursue the power of technology brought by the dwarves. Their balanced characteristics and thirst for more knowledge make them powerful allies, although their shortsighted mistreatment of the land often leads to some disharmony between their allies.

    TBA

      Calm and highly intelligent, this powerful race endured a dark and agonizing past to enjoy their current glory. Betrayed, persecuted, and tortured, nothing would please them more than to see the fires of revenge burn against the Erlandir Union.

Kingdom of Isenhorst - The Beginning

The Adventurer Hoka

Since time immemorial, the Kingdom of Isenhorst has been the domain of the Lokemean Dwarves. An optimistic yet stubborn race, their history is filled with individuals forsaking the gods for science and technology. This energetic focus led to the development of the world’s most advanced steam technologies. A pleasure in precision matched by the Dwarven love of beauty filled Lokemea with grand mechanical structures, including the crowning achievement of Steam Castle.

Content with their lives of research and prosperity, no Dwarf sought to question the monolithic mountains of Ellescadia that formed an impassable border to what is now known as the Eastern Continent. No Dwarf, that is, until the genius technologist and explorer Hoka began to put his formidable mind to the quest. Taken from his memoirs:

    When did the idea take root? A long-answered and complex question. When I was a dwarfling, my father and his would take me digging and forging. That was the beginning of my travels. One day we journeyed to the foot of the Ellescadia. Standing at one of the mountain’s base – I forget now which – I realized how small I was. And then the question: What is on the other side?

    I tried to push it to the back of my mind, and live a contented life amongst my peers and relations. After years of study, and many journeys through Lokemea, I was left with a vast and looming challenge. I decided to follow my dreams, and find a way to fly over those mountains.

Hoka’s projects and research created an uproar among the conservative Lokemeans, who even to the date of this writing view the intrepid explorer with derision. From his memoirs:

    Living as I did, with a black Prospector’s Beard, the only comforts were research and liquor. I felt like I was in the deepest of mines, with no sign of gold. That is, until Pablo and the others showed up. After our first night of drinking, the factory sprang into life.

    For the third test of our new flying machine, Pablo drew the small wrench. I still see his eager smile in my mind. The explosion that followed, I still see in my nightmares. We then decided that the best way to honor Pablo was by completing our task. On our successful flight over, our base camp was known as Pablo Town.

Having successfully reached the Eastern Continent of Erlandir, Hoka and his team continued to journey into this new land. Marveling at its beauty and tranquility, they met the other races of the landwho dwelt there. Finding an affinity with the curious and short-lived Humans, Hoka laid the foundation for all that followed by teaching them about steam technology.

Second Beta Content Preview

Experience a new evolution in combat that combines the normal elements of third-person with FPS as players fight for supremacy for a world of Steam technology or tighten the grip of the natural world with Magic and Fantasy. Here is a glimpse at a few of the many features available to our North American players in the Beta:

Persistent, Massive World

Black Gold will feature six races and 6 primary classes. Gone are the typical warrior, mage, and healer roles. These 6 classes have their own unique subclasses that combine a tank with a support or a healer with a sniper. Players of a faction must learn how these classes work with one another to prove victories against the rival faction or the many dynamic events in the world. Player’s in the CB will only have access to a few of these classes due to the short time, but there will always be time for more…much more. 

War all on Fronts

The vast continent of Montel is filled with dangers that players can interact with. From large scale resource battles, Guild Supremacy fights, and even Cross-Server wars. There is something for everyone to hop into and assume control over in the changing landscape.

Freestyle Combat

 

Black Gold employs a free-style combo system to make pummeling your opponents all the more satisfying. So charge, roll for cover and unleash devastating critical hits on an open battlefield that’s yours for the conquering.

Grab a Mech Fight a Dragon

Steam-powered mechs, transport vehicles, anti-air cannons, armored vehicles, aircraft carriers and warships are just half the story; on the magic side your arsenal begins with flying dragons and battle-trained beasts to send the enemy fleeing in terror. Your attacks can cripple enemy machinery, and you can also steal armaments from the other side. First-person, third-person and sniper-style gameplay is also at your disposal.

The first round of Black Gold’s invasion begins in China on May 30th and will soon travel to North America at E3. Players in the CB will experience all the features mentioned above along with the epic PvP and nine deadly instances. Stay on guard for more Black Gold news and official updates in the coming weeks.
