Changes Coming for Black Gold Online Beta
The latest alpha for Black Gold Online is finished and Snail Games USA is taking the information gathered to heart. The mmorpg has viewed the feedback given by the testers and is using that as a basis for improvement. Developers are now detailing the changes coming for the Black Gold Online beta.
The producer of Black Gold Online, Kee Zhang, states, "With the completion of the Alpha Test from March 20th-31st, we received a considerable volume of feedback: some lauding, some critical, but most importantly a lot of useful ideas and suggestions for upgrades to the game. We wanted to thank our community of fans by offering a little peek at what they can expect in the Closed Beta test coming soon."
So what can testers for the mmo expect when the beta rolls out? Well, practically every element of the game will be impacted. There will be improved graphics and new maps to highlight Black Gold Online's mix of fantasy and industrial expansionism. The UI will be cleaner and less intrusive to more fully immerse the players into the game's world. The controls for the game have been improved, especially the popular Crosshairs Mode. Quests are being tweaked to provide a richer story and combat is getting some attention in the areas of collision detection and combat animations. Other changes for the beta also include loot drops, secret landmarks, and world drop treasure maps.
The biggest change for the Black Gold Online beta will be the introduction of four new playable classes, two for each faction. Steam gets the Gunslinger and the Thaumaturge, while Fantasy gets the Skycaller and Beastmaster. All in all, there's a host of new features for players to try out when the beta for the game begins.
