After the successful launch of Age of Wushu, Snail Games is looking ahead to its latest MMO title, Black Gold Online. And thanks to a recent $97 million loan from four Chinese banks, the future of BGO is looking brighter.

Snail Games and publisher Shanda Games will also be chipping in a cool $32.6 million for marketing the steampunk MMO title. Black Gold Online is currently in closed beta in China with a North American launch to come next year.
