Battlestar Galactica Online!

February 10, 2011, By Christian Cawley

Ever watch Battlestar Galactica and thought to yourself that you could do better than Adama? Well now is the time to prove it with Battlestar Galactica Online from Bigpoint!

Battlestar Galactica Online

A browser based MMOG offering tactical space combat and based on the hit Syfy (formerly The Sci-Fi Channel) TV series, Battlestar Galactica Online pits Humans and Cylons into battle for control of the universe!

Bigpoint are the global market leader in browser-based MMOs, so it makes sense that they should have been chosen to develop and run the free-to-play, browser-based space combat title Battlestar Galactica Online, which you can find at battlestar-galactica.bigpoint.com.

Closed beta testing took place in late 2010 and the game is now live to be played by anyone around the world.

David Eick was Executive Producer of Battlestar Galactica, and he’s more than happy with how Bigpoint have treated the franchise for development of the game:

“Bigpoint has successfully embraced the spirit of Battlestar Galactica’s aggressive ship design, tactile physics, and its signature, vérité-style combat aesthetic, and taken it all to an entirely new level. Playing this game is like watching the most highly-adrenalized, nail-biting episodes of the series while chewing on a hunk of uranium. I highly recommend it – just make sure you don’t have anything else to do for a few days…”

Allowing players to choose sides and telling a previously untold chapter in the conflict between Humans and Cylons, this looks like a superb release and could be the one to finally persuade serious gamers that browser-based gaming can be just as good as desktop or console gaming – if the graphic above is anything to go by!
