Combining fantasy with gothic steampunk, Black Gold Online is set in a world of epic struggle as two factions vie for control of a powerful, crystallized energy known as "Black Gold". On one side, players will experience the land of Erlandir, filled with magic drawn from the life and nature found around the ancient jungles and temples of the terrain. The other side features the land of Isenhorst, a mechanized society of giant walking cities, which utilizes engineering and mechanized equipment to gain supremacy.
Those who pre-order the retail version of Black Gold Online, titled Black Gold Online: Conqueror's Edition, will receive various perks including a special mount (horse) in their final game retail package, available this summer. Black Gold Online: Conqueror's Edition includes custom exclusive garments (Officer's Overcoat and Ceremonial Garment); special crystals for high-end exchange and crafting (Soul Crystal and Stone of Blessings); and over $20 of in-game currency. All told, the retail version includes digital content worth more than $50.
