Battlestar Galactica Online is a browser orientated experience that takes the MMORPG genre into space.


The game is based on the TV series and was developed by Bigpoint with a release in early 2011. The game quickly grew in popularity with millions of registered accounts only a few months after release. Battlestar Galactica Online offers real time combat that players take part in by building their own ship with plenty of customisable parts. The game has wonderful 3D graphics that are definitely comparable to client games.

In the game you can choose to play as Colonial or Cylon, a decision which has permanent implications so think carefully and communicate with friends before committing to a faction.

Battlestar Galactica Online focuses on economies and combat with players assuming the role of a pilot in the fantasy world based on the Battlestar Galactica series. The game is very open ended like most MMORPGs with most players often focusing on the online leader boards as their main objective.

As a pilot in the Battlestar Galactica universe you are put in charge of your own ship. These ships come in many forms from agile and light fighters to large battle ships.


On the economy side of the game players can collect five different resources which can be used to upgrade your ship or purchase a new one. These resources include Tylium, Titanium, Water, Merits and Cubits, each of them have their own particular use which gives the game a great level of economic depth.

If you love the massively multiplayer online role playing scene but wanted something with a sci-fi twist that you can play in your browser then try out Battlestar Galactica Online, you don’t even have to be a fan of the show to get into the storyline making it accessible to everyone.
