When it was announced that Bigpoint a developer of web-based games had acquired the Battlestar Galactica license and intended to create an MMO with it (to be called Battlestar Galactica Online), it was met with a mixed response. The response was based purely on the fact that it was to be free-to-play and browser-based, and typically browser-based is associated with "cheap and/or ugly". There was understandable speculation that it would be a standard game with few ties to the much-loved Battlestar Galactica universe.

Today, it was announced that many major characters from the popular SyFy show would have a presence within the game, rendered in fairly impressive 3D, considering it is running in your browser.

According to the announcement, the game will contain the likenesses of:

Human

William "Admiral" Adama portrayed by Edward James Olmos
Kara "Starbuck" Thrace portrayed by Katee Sackhoff
Lee "Apollo" Adama portrayed by Jamie Bamber
Galen "Chief" Tyrol portrayed by Aaron Douglas

Cylon

Number Six portrayed by Tricia Helfer
Number Eight portrayed by Grace Park
Number One (John Cavil) portrayed by Dean Stockwell
Number Two (Leoben Conoy) portrayed by Callum Keith Rennie

It is for the PC its a web browser based game means all tat u really need is a web browser (for example firefox or internet explorer) & a fast internet as there will be 1000+ players in one raiding like attking cylon ships or protecting our mining ships while they mine for tylium & also the unity plug in engine to run the game and lastly if you have a good graphic card max up everything to enjoy the game!!! :adama-pancarte001:

PS: I posted this in the CDF website but i think for everyone i will also post the latest pics here enjoy :thumbup:

Looks good... but... I'll have to wait and see if the games come to pass. I have a feeling they will stall out and never be released.

Either one. They are both cool YES! But I don't think that either will ever hit the market as a finished product. One is taking forever and this other one is a new entry - as far as I know - I just don't have a good feeling about them. BSG since 1978 has not had the biggest "toy/game" market vs. other SciFi shows/movies.

Some very nice looking graphic art work and screenshots. :cylonclap:

I am kinda with CK on this - I really hope they come out with something along the lines and with the detail of STAR TREK ONLINE and I will be one of the first ones to sign up and support if it does - BUT, I am not going to hold my breath till it gets here. BSG games of this type have a NOTORIOUS history of never doing anything but putting out nice test screenshots to get everyone "Hot and Bothered" before going "Tits-Up" and leaving us all in the dumps again. :cylon-pancarte04:

One thing I see from the get-go that I FRACKIN HATE right off the bat is the "X-Box'ish" way you pilot the vehicle from a view slightly behind the craft. Would very much like to see it built more like the "Combat Sims" where you had to actually fight and fly the craft from inside the cockpit and had certain controls you had to use to get the vehicle, weapons, radar, throttles, etc. to work - just like a real fighter works. From all the years I spent gamming - IMHO this makes for a more intense playing experience for your money and time. But unfortunately most of the "kiddies" out there hate it. They want to just pick a controller up and start shooting anything and everything and if they actually have to set and take a few minutes to "Learn" something they throw a fit and move on to something else. Unfortunately most of the gamming industry caters to this crowd because they are out to make a guick buck and not the best sim out on the market.

My $.02

Just noticed they don't have a playable CYLON CENTUION, either New or Guardian version.

WHAT THE FRAK IS UP WITH THAT?!?! :cylon-pancarte04: :cylon-pancarte04: :cylon-pancarte04:

This sounds like STO not having the Romulans as a playable version upon opening. Kinda of a "Brain-Fart" moment for those in charge leaving out one of the most popular characters in the series. :nonono:
