Gamigo board-member, Patrick Streppel, has issued an open and optimistic letter on the forum of free-to-play space combat MMOG Black Prophecy, outlining the game’s progress and future updates.

Streppel commented that the game’s recent European launch “went down very smoothly” and that North American closed Beta testing is underway. A French translation of the game is also in progress with a number of additional language versions including Spanish, Russian and Chinese, in discussion.

In the short-term future, Streppel promised monthly updates with small scale content additions, bug fixes and balance optimisation. He goes on to talk about bigger updates,

“About every three months a big update (add-on) is planned that will raise the current level cap and also provide all new game content in the form of new story missions to advance the main plot, new hubs and open world sectors to explore, new missions to master and, of course, more items to equip.”

Longer term goals include additional game modes, more exploration elements and the possibility of “station walking”, enabling you get out of the your space craft, stretch your legs and socialise with other players.

The full post can be read on the Black Prophecy forum.
