Battlestar Galactica Online Launches  by Craig D at 16:25

Artplant's browser based Battlestar Galactica free to play MMO is now live and currently available exclusively at SyFy.co.uk. Think I'll create myself a 'skin job' character later and give it a whirl.

David Eick, Executive Producer of Battlestar Galactica, said, "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..."

Battlestar Galactica Online is based on the acclaimed Emmy and Peabody Award-winning television series Battlestar Galactica, which aired for four seasons on Syfy. Set during the latter part of the show’s second season, the game takes the form of a previously untold chapter in which both the Colonial and Cylon fleets are stranded in an uncharted area of space. Heavily damaged and low on critical supplies, both fleets must fight for control of the resources in the nearby star systems as the Colonials desperately search for a way to escape before the Cylons regain enough strength to destroy them once and for all.

"Our team’s passion for the series, and their dedication to maintaining its authenticity, enabled us to extend Battlestar Galactica’s iconic IP into a world-class MMOG," said Heiko Hubertz, CEO and Founder, Bigpoint. "We are confident that a new standard has been achieved – no longer should browser games be considered subpar to their console or PC-installed counterparts."
