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.
As today, Black Gold Online is currently in Open Beta testing. In addition, Conqueror's Edition, a retail version of the game, is now available via GameStop, Amazon, BestBuy, Wal-Mart and Fred Meyer for $19.99.
