Let’s dive into the fantastical world of mythical beasts and steampunk legends where you can choose to fight for either the Steampowered Kingdom of Isenhorst or the Magically Enriched Erlandir Union. No matter your choice of faction, you are presented with 3 select races, 12 unique classes, and 5 different Mech carriers or Warbeasts of destruction. Black Gold Online is a fashionably styled MMO with revolutionary gameplay elements including: Mech battles, Guild vs. Guild PVP, Victorian Steampunk vs. High Fantasy Steampunk Vs. Fantasy, Dragon vs. Mech, and massively multiplayer online gameplay.
Black Gold Online was first presented by Snail Games at E3 in Los Angeles (June 10-12, 2014), where players could get their hands-on the new MMO. The official launch of the game’s beta was announced on Friday, June 20, 2014 and it is now available on Snail Games’ official website for free.
“Our previous experience with Xsolla proved that having a reliable payment partner is very important. Xsolla helped Snail Games to not only improve the in-game payment experience for our players, but also to keep fraud levels under control,” says Peter Kang of Snail Games.
Snail Games & Xsolla Partnership
Snail Games chose Xsolla as their primary payment and billing partner for Black Gold Online, enabling over 600 payment methods for players all over the globe. With popular payment methods like credit cards and PayPal, as well as more exotic options like local e-wallets and prepaid cards easily accessible through Xsolla’s payment services, Black Gold Online players can fully enjoy the high fantasy/steampunk in-game world to the fullest.
Xsolla’s payment platform has earlier been enabled only for players of Age of Wushu in select regions. It is now available to fans of Black Gold Online in all countries with the exception of China.
“Xsolla is excited to work with Snail Games on their latest release and we look forward to a fruitful relationship.” – Sam Gaglani – Director of Global Business Development, Xsolla
