Bigpoint’s First “High-End” Title Benefiting from New Content, Features, and Worldwide Distribution; New Ships Added for High-Level Players. Bigpoint celebrates Battlestar Galactica Online’s Two Million Registered Players in three months.
San Francisco – May 25th, 2011 – Bigpoint today announced that Battlestar Galactica Online has passed two million registered players in its first three months of worldwide availability, attracting more than 20,000 new players to the space combat MMO every day. Based on the internationally popular Syfy television series produced by Universal Cable Productions, Battlestar Galactica Online is a free-to-play, browser-based space combat MMORPG that combines high-quality, 3D graphics with intense gameplay.
Since its official launch, the game has benefitted from new Colonial and Cylon ships, a Merit system that enables the purchase of high-value items like nuclear missiles, and the ability for players to take control of their faction’s capital ships, the Battlestar Pegasus or Cylon Basestar.
“With BSGO continuing to achieve new benchmarks, and receive such a strong positive response from the fans, we’re excited to take its development to the next level,” said Rob Ollett, managing director, Bigpoint International. “At just three-months in we’re at a point now where we can shift the majority of our attention to adding new content and addressing the community’s wish list.”
New major content additions include the addition of new tier three “line” ships for both human and Cylon players. The Gungnir joins the Colonial fleet and the Nidhogg joins the Cylons – both are powerful, multi-role attack ships. Basic models of both can be unlocked with Cubits (in-game premium currency), and advanced models can be purchased with Merits, which players earn through gameplay such as helping to destroy enemy outposts.
Both ship names follow the Norse mythology theme, which has been used to name the existing line ships. Gungnir is Odin’s spear, and Nidhogg is the main dragon in Norse mythology, which gnaws on the roots of the World Tree. In addition to ongoing game balancing, performance optimization, and general polish, Bigpoint will continue to add new content and features.
