Xsolla and Snail Games have strengthened their partnership with the release of Black Gold Online, a new title from the creators of world-famous Chinese MMO, The Age of Wushu.

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.

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, Black Gold Online players can fully enjoy the high fantasy with steampunk in-game world.

Xsolla payment platform has earlier been enabled only for players of The Age of Wushu in select regions. It is now available to fans of Black Gold Online in all countries with the exception of China.

“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.

“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
