Battlestar Galactica Online enters open beta

As promised the open beta test for the browser-based MMO Battlestar Galactica Online is now available for anyone to try out. The sci-fi themed game from publisher Bigpoint, based on the revamped TV series, is currently available exclusively at the SyFy.com web site for the next six weeks for US players. UK players can also sign on to play the game at their local Syfy.com web site.

Storywise the game takes place at an unknown time during the TV series where both the human fleet and the Cylons fleet are trapped in a sector of space. The goal is for the humans and Cylons to fight each other while also trying to control resources in the sector' star systems. The press release announcing the launch of the open beta has a memorable quote from David Eick, the executive producer of the Battlestar Galactica TV series, who states, "Playing this game is like watching the most highly-adrenalized, nail-biting episodes of the series while chewing on a hunk of uranium." That sounds painful.
