IGN says "Persistent Online Action". Would that translate even remotely to "something like EVE"?

Its an MMO as far as I know. Question is how it will be played. Do I have a FP Freespace/WingCommander like flightstyle or is it like EVE or something completly new?
The screenshots suggest that it will be a very cool looking game and I am realy thinking about signing in for betatesting but on the other hand I don't have much time at hand so I don't know.

Heaven forbid that the developer create an 'about' page.  :ick:

This isn't going to be another SF story about the galactic cycle is it

Anyway, the preview (http://au.pc.ign.com/articles/815/815449p1.html) at IGN seems to indicate it's actually pilotable rather than something like EVE. And that it's at least somewhat story-centric. So, promising so far.

you got my attention!. so you can actually pilot it instead of autopilot and ive played homeworld plus C and 2.

two questions, 1. looking at these shots, i suspect you need a computer system that requires killer performance?

2. because its all graphical and story line orientated, how will the costs work out, advert? card cards? and if so how much per se?

i might check the site out to see if i can find anything out.

Just thought I'd try and help out here: http://www.prophecy-network.com/forum/ those are the unofficial forums for Black Prophecy atm. ANY information that has been released on Black Prophecy thus far can be find on that site.

Why must everything be MMO or internet related nowadays? What has happened to single-player gaming?

probably doesn't give you the same feel like it does then you play against a person, where the ai is predictable and follows a path it gets boring, however you play a person... you should of already known that :lol:
