This would be the Massive Multiplayer Online game which has been anticipated shortly after the TV series wrapped up last year.
Devoted fans of "Battlestar Galactica" can relive the moment through an online game which first trailer has just been released by Bigpoint and SyFy. "Battlestar Galactica Online" is the upcoming MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) which will put gamers either as Human or Cylon/Man or Machine.
It will debut on SyFy's website first as a 30 day exclusive before going public. The game, which uses the browser-based 3-D software technology by Unity, will include tactical space combat, exploration, and mission-based quests. Some elements from the Emmy-winning series as well as storyline are embedded in the game.
" 'Battlestar Galactica' has a huge and passionate fan base," CEO and Bigpoint founder Heiko Hubertz said. "We are proud to be able to publish such an internationally famous title as one of our online games. For the first time ever, we're relying completely on Unity in order to offer our users fantastic game graphics right in their browsers."
The TV series ended in March last year after four seasons on screen. Then a TV movie called "Battlestar Galactica: The Plan" was premiered in January this year, taking the point of view from the Cylons.
