Gamigo has announced that the European version of the Black Prophecy open beta is scheduled to begin with the North American open beta to come at a later date. European players can register for the beta at the official Black Prophecy site.
The new open beta client will include many new and updated features that were not available before: controls have been made more intuitive and allow the direction one is shooting in to be determined independently from the direction of the ship. Weapons have been examined carefully and their damage output has been rebalanced. The level cap has been raised to level 40 and new content has been added. A change log of all the new features can be found in the official forum.
