Spacefaring shooter fans looking for a massively multiplayer game with a stronger emphasis on action than economy should be overjoyed to learn that Reakktor Media's Black Prophecy has been cleared for launch in North America.
Developed in Germany and released in Europe earlier this year, Black Prophecy takes place in the 26th century where bio-genetically enhanced humans and cybernetically enhanced humans battle for dominance across the galaxy. Into the midst of this conflict comes an ancient alien race known as Restorers, which doesn't take kindly to other living beings. Players must choose a faction and set out into the void in order to solve the mystery of the Restorers and kills as many of the opposing faction as possible.
Sounds like fun to me.
Players can participate in player-versus-player combat, take on player-versus-environment missions alone or in groups, and basically wander around the galaxy in a kick-ass spaceship, which is all I really wanted to do in the first place (R.I.P., Earth and Beyond).
Black Prophecy is completely free-to-play, with items available for purchase in case you wish to spend money. That means the only thing standing between you and some massively multiplayer space combat is signing up for an account and downloading the game.
