Reakktor Media GmbH has announced that it will team up with the Hamburg-based publisher gamigo AG on its upcoming space-based MMO, Black Prophecy.
The companies have also decided to make Black Prophecy free-to-play, which is something that fans have been wondering about since the game waslast year. Despite the business model, however, we’re assured that the quality of the game will match those with monthly subscription fees.
“Reakktor’s Black Prophecy will breathe life back into a genre previously forgotten” said gamigo’s Patrick Streppel, “The game features graphics of the highest quality, a rich and meaningful story, and strong community features. Since we’ve begun collaborating with Reakktor, we have expanded greatly upon the concept of the game and thus are able to offer one of the first top-of-the-line free-to-play MMOGs.”
In the last few weeks, BP has had a crafting system added and seen the layout of the game open up. In-game dialogue will be recorded by “professional voice actors”, and an hour and a half of original orchestral soundtrack will be included.
“We are excited to have found such a strong partner in gamigo for the publishing and distribution of our space action MMOG Black Prophecy” said Kirk Lenke, CEO of Reakktor Media GmbH. “gamigo has the necessary skills and abilities to turn our product into a global MMOG blockbuster.”
The game’s closed beta test is due to start next month, stay tuned for more info as its released.
