We mentioned a few times in the past, that there’s a
Free-to-Play online game based on the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica. It was in closed beta the last time we
checked in itht he game, so details were scarce. However, as of today, everyone who is curious can log in and
give the game a shot for free in the open beta test.
If you missed our preview, BSG: Online is a space combat game with a bit of MMO as well.
Players can choose to join either the colonists (Humans), or the Cylons (A
bunch of Frakkin’ Toasters), and battle it out in PVE, or PVP combat. You’ll level, up, gain upgrades for
your ship, and new skills for your pilot.
The game is developed by Bigpoint who have a good track

runs on the Unity engine which is some sort of dark sorcery that lets you play
games with 3-D graphics right on your web browser. It works with just about any browser and macintosh too. BSG: Online doesn’t require an install either, so it’s also
It’s just started up, so expect the servers to be a bit
bloated, and the game to still have some bugs, but it’s running now for all to
enjoy. You can register an account
and log into the game at BSG: O’s website.
