Bigpoint Officially Launches Battlestar Galactica Online

Posted Wed, Feb 09, 2011 by Martuk

The war between humans and cylons has reignited with the launch of Battlestar Galactica Online (BGO). Bigpoint today announced that the Battlestar Galactica inspired MMOG went live today, bringing new free-to-play, browser-based space combat and many pilots screaming "Frak you" at the enemy. Players can choose to become a human or a cylon and engage in a blend of tactical space combat, exploration and mission-based gameplay.

To ensure the game feels much like the re-invisioned television show, several character likenesses have been used along with the original Battlestar Galactica score from Bear McCreary.

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...”
