    Default Black Gold Beta Test

    So, it starts today. Dunno if there's an NDA (I don't remember agreeing to one, but better safe than sorry). So... This can either be a general discussion/speculation thread, or a beta discussion thread. Depending on the status (or lack there of) of the NDA.

    anyone got an extra key? Been waiting for a while now :/ Thought I'd at least get in since I've done the survey last month. Been looking forward to this since City of steam was such a failure. PM me please if you have an extra or dont want yours.

    Hello Everyone,

    As we all get ready for the exciting lauch of the Black Gold Online Alpha Test Drive, we wanted to address some questions forum-goers had about the Alpha's Non-Disclosure Agreement.

    During the Alpha, we request players not post their screen shots or stream game videos. Not on the forum, on Facebook, or anywhere. As the Alpha's version is still in development, we hope that players will save all their awesome game content for later testing with more polished versions of the game.

    There will be an official forum section reserved specifically for the Alpha Test. Although the General Discussion section will still be open and free for whatever members want to discuss, the Test Forum will have more focused sections about different game features, and we hope players will keep their discussions relevant to a give topic.

    Within the Test Forum, we encourage testers to speak freely and offer their thoughts, comments, and criticisms.

    We look forward to hearing what everyone things, and we'll see you in the game.

    The BGO Team

    I really hope I'll somewhat enjoy this test because I was itching for a new MMO to try out.
    But looking at it realistically, I think I'll get bored after about an hour or two, close the game and never open it again.


    Would really like it if the game proves me wrong on that one though!

    Agreed the game looks beautiful and I have it on low.. Lots of different control options as well. Crosshair mode is fun.

    A friend of mine got in and offered me his key. If it wasn't for the fact that I'd rather play what I have already I'd actually be interested in seeing this trainwreck in action.

    After playing a little I've got to say... Meh, typical generic F2P MMO. The only things that stood out to me were the graphics which are rather decent and the music in the starting area but that's about it. Animations feel really "choppy" and to me the overall game play just feels off.
