– In “Black Prophecy” 10TACLE STUDIOS and developer Reakktor Media will for the first time be leaving space and time behind them at this year’s Games Convention in Leipzig. Today’s launch of the www.blackprophecy.com
website reveals a number of secrets concerning the Action-MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online) title and shows some impressive images from the depths of space. As well as fighting epic multi-player battles and fulfilling exciting single-player missions players will experience a fascinating story from the pen of prize-winning German science-fiction author Michael Marrak. In addition to many roll-playing game elements and a comprehensive resource-management system the tactically demanding “Black Prophecy” also offers a tremendous depth of play and spectacular deep-space action for the PC.
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.
