Black Gold Online E3 trailer fronts clockwork dogs

Remember Black Gold, Snail games’ steampunk MMO? I don’t, but here’s a new trailer.

Black Gold hails from the same team as The Chosen, Ministry of War and several other MMOs I’ve never heard of. This one looks pretty neat though; the plot pits a nature-loving fantasy themed faction against the technology-lovers, and posits a substance called black gold (not oil) which powers all manner of airships and clockwork dogs. It has six playable races, including vampires and dwarves, but no release date as yet beyond an expected western launch this year. Take a look below.

Thanks, massively.
