At GDC 2010 today, NBC, SyFy, and developer Bigpoint announced a browser-based massively multiplayer online game based on the hit Sci-Fi Channel show Battlestar Galactica.
The browser-based massively multiplayer online game based on the hit sci-fi show Battlestar Galactica promises what NBC and developer Bigpoint to include "tactical space combat and adventure". The game will initially launch exclusively on SyFy's website for a 30 day period this fall, before being available elsewhere.
"Battlestar Galactica is a supremely gameable intellectual property, with compelling character classes, a fantastic array of ships and weaponry, multiple worlds, and a dramatic storyline," said Bill Kispert, VP & GM, Digital Platforms, Universal Partnerships & Licensing, in a press release.
Players will be able to choose to play as either the humans, led by Admiral Adama, or the Cylons, and the game will be a blend of tactical space combat, exploration, and mission-based gameplay. According to the press release, Battlestar Galactica Online will feature 3D graphics in your browser. Images and sounds from the TV show will be integrated into the game.
