Black Prophecy is more action-oriented than a traditional space simulation offering PvP battles and various PvP missions. 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. In addition to the modular ship design, players can also further customize their ships by adding modifications to their ship's modules and weapons. Player clans can build clan stations that are expandable through a module system. Different modules add different functionalities to the station and clans can fight each other to conquer resource stations.
