Snail Games USA today begins the highly anticipated closed beta event for the upcoming Steampunk fantasy hybrid MMORPG, Black Gold Online. Eligible players will have the opportunity to sample the vast array of exciting new features beginning later today at 2PM PDT, concluding Wednesday, May 28th.

The closed beta gives players the chance to explore the wonders of Montel as they participate in large-scale mounted battlegrounds, intense PvP action and a plethora of faction and guild based activities sure to test the resolve of any avid PvP player.

“Following our successful launch of  Age of Wushu  in 2013,  Black Gold Online arrives
as an important next step for our emergence in the North American
market,” said Jim Tsai, Vice President of Snail Games USA. “Our Closed
Alpha period saw incredible player participation and useful feedback,
which we’ve taken into consideration as the game continues progression.
Closed Beta opens the floodgates even more for player eligibility, which
means a more complete game experience for players to test and for our
development team to evaluate as we look toward the game’s summer
launch.”

Black Gold Online will be available as a free download later this summer with a unique retail version expected to launch for PC. Don’t miss your opportunity to dive into this immersive steampunk fantasy, grab your closed beta code here.
