Snail Games' steampunk-inspired MMO Black Gold Online just wrapped up its alpha testing phase (we were there!) and is getting ready to enter closed beta. A press release and blog post outline the changes being made to the game based on feedback from players. Notably:

* A graphics update "will aim to reinforce the core art concept of Black Gold Online," that being an industrial/fantasy blend of styles.
* interface improvements, aimed at being "less obtrusive" than earlier implementations and allowing easier access to the various game windows and menus.
* Revisions to the combat system, which we thought was rather dry, as well as quest lines and general PvE adventuring.
* Changes to mounted PvP (yes, MOUNTED!), aimed at allowing players more flexibility in upgrading their vehicles and making them generally more usable across all modes of play.
* And four new classes -- the thaumaturge, gunslinger, beastmaster, and skycaller -- as well as tweaks to the eight existing classes.

There's no set date yet on when the closed beta will start, so stay tuned for further updates!

This game has unique PvP ( u can use battle mounts ) , battle system just sucks. Yea , they make trailers awesome , what game doesnt ? Its just follow quest and done and run run run to complete. Graphics are like okay i quess. It has like Guild war thing but its called Energy well. If u occupie it, ur guild gets a boost. Like increase of bg and such.
