Hamburg, March 10, 2010– In anticipation of the launch of the final version of Black Prophecy, gamigo has ventured to give players a glimpse into the future of the space combat MMOG. The publisher has revealed a few details and images of the main feature of the first add-on, which is planned for the beginning of next year: station walking.
This feature will allow players to leave their spaceships and explore the lavishly-detailed space stations on their own two feet. The possibilities this features opens up are almost endless. Soon players no longer need to use menu windows to trade, receive mission briefings or mod their ships but can do so by interacting with NPCs - be it in a shady bar, the command center or in one of the massive hangars.
Another addition that will be introduced with station walking is the possibility for players to purchase an apartment in a space station and to decorate it with looted furnishings. This can serve as a quiet spot to find some solitude from the rush of space battles and as a place to hang out with friends. Clans will also be able to acquire apartments where clan members can meet and which will feature a variety of clan management tools.
Patrick Streppel, Executive Board Member at gamigo, said this: "Station walking is not just a feature a lot of fans of Black Prophecy will enjoy, it's almost like a second game. Being able to move their avatar outside their spaceships will allow players to identify more closely with their characters and will add a lot of new ways to interact - who knows what other possibilities will come in the future..."
More about station walking and other features of the add-on can be found on the official website soon. A selection of images can be downloaded now.
