Black Gold Features
Black Gold Online is a 3D Steampunk Fantasy MMORPG developed by Snail Games. There are 2 factions and 6 races in the game. The game features a branching path option for questing. Once you select a branch, events that happen in the future are affected by that choice! With a variety of functions and features, Black Gold is an ambitious and all-encompassing project! Yup, it's all here in abundance with a rich graphical presentation.
The game story starts in an interesting and unusual world full of adventures. In this world there exists a special resource, which is called "Black Gold". This resource doesn't only give power to steam engines, but also to the shamans and casters for magical use. From the "Black Gold" one can make a "Black Steam" – which combines the energy of steam and magic.
This world consists of Erlandir and Isenhorst lands, which are separated by a mountain chain - Ellescadia Mountain Range. Due to this mountain chain – the sun shines only on the Eastern part of the lands, that's why Erlandir is always lit with sun, while Isenhorst is in a never ending darkness.
The rich sunlight on Erlandir gave birth to lots of elements under the land. These elements accumulated for centuries finally forming a magical resource – "Black Gold".
Humans, Koshs and Brutes, which inhabit Erlandir always filled themselves with magic and energies of "Black Gold". Their life totally depended on that resource.
In Isenhorst, Dwarves, Humans and Vampires, which immigrated from Erlandir formed a Steam Alliance. For their prosperity and creation of civilization they used steam technologies invented by Dwarves. However in result of war and overproduction, the coal they used to power their steam machines started to disappear rapidly. At this moment, the ambitious leader of the Steam Alliance – king Beltain the Second formed a great army to conquer Erlandir for the "Black Gold" as it was much more efficient than coal.
This is the moment, when the player enters the world and starts to build his own history. He should decide which side he wants to support and who should rule the world.
Massive Customization: With 6 races split between 2 alignments, 8 primary class trees and 24 sub-branches of those classes, players won't be lacking in the ability to differentiate themselves from others. Will you join with the Kingdom of Isenhorst's humans, dwarves, and vampires, or the Union of Erlandir's humans, kosh, and brutes?
Different Alignment, Different Class Options: Just because humans are on both sides of the war doesn't mean they are identical. With the influence of their local region, each race has expanded in different directions with magic and technology to offer completely different class trees to choose from.
Branching Story: There is more than one way to the level 60 cap in Black Gold Online. Depending on which assignments you accept, you may end up taking a very different approach to the final destination each time you start a new character.
Plate Armor System: Specialize as a Mechanical Knight and choose from one of three style of Mechs to wreck your opponent's day. Customize your mech to build a unique style all to your own.
Spell Customization: Have you mastered the elements of fire and air? Why not combine them to unlock even more powerful combinations. Players will be able to craft their own spells through combining basic spells.
