Yet life in space requires a great deal of adaptation.
By the mid 26th century humanity has conquered the universe and colonized countless planets. Yet life in space requires a great deal of adaptation. Bred for just these conditions, the cybernetically adapted Tyi and the biogenetically optimized Geniden have outgrown their creators to become the new ruling races. Their uncompromising battle for total mastery of space leads humanity into the sphere of influence of an ancient alien life form – a life form which tolerates no other cosmic civilizations but its own. In this battle against an overpowering enemy, players must first choose which of the two rival factions they wish to join as they try to save humanity.
Starting in the fall of 2008 the fascinating science-fiction universe from “Black Prophecy” will present players a complex online universe featuring cinema-quality space battles. A universe in which they fly their spacecraft alone, as a clan member or as part of a fleet as they fight political battles and prove themselves in the fight against extinction at the hands of the aliens. The search for their home world and the answer to their dark secret soon becomes a race to save all the races of mankind.
Black Prophecy uses the latest in graphics technology to produce breathtaking visuals.
Fast-paced action combat:
Black Prophecy is more action-oriented than a traditional space simulation. We are trying to avoid long travel times or other activities where the player isn't really doing anything.
Exciting Player vs. Player combat:
Black Prophecy allows players to organize big PvP battles and also offers varied PvP missions.
Black Prophecy's universe, story and background has been created by the award-winning Sci-Fi author Michael Marrak.
Modular ship design:
Player ships are not sold as whole, but instead consist of modules like cockpits, wings, engines etc. All these modules are available in different shapes and sizes, which allows the players to customize their ships.
Item modification system:
In addition to the modular ship design, players can also further customize their ships by adding modifications to their ship's modules and weapons.
