New Screens & Information -

Battlestar Galactica Online publisher, Bigpoint, has released a half dozen new screens and some new information about player and ship customization, missions, XP and more. Battlestar Galactica Online is currently in development at ArtPlant and is touted as being a 'ground breaking browser based MMO'.

  • BGO will feature 20 levels. Players will begin as either a human 'nugget' or as a recently created Cylon pilot mind. XP will be gained through the completion of tasks for a player's faction.
  • There are two types of missions: Story and Assignments. From the information available, these missions are akin to plot and side quests found in other MMOs.
  • Ship Class and Customization:

Each faction in Battlestar Galactica Online has several playable ship classes, divided into three 'tiers' by size (small, medium and large) and role (Offensive, Defensive and Command). Each ship class has a specific number of slots for Ship Systems, which are items that grant ships abilities and bonuses when installed. There are four general categories of ship systems (Weapon, Hull, Engine and Computer) and three sizes (small, medium and large). In addition, most systems have several levels of increasing in power and effectiveness. Characters begin the game with a small ship, but by collecting enough resources can requisition additional ships, and by earning enough XP can qualify to command larger vessels. Eventually, a character can own several ships of different classes. By allocating XP, characters can train the skills required to use additional types and higher levels of ship systems, which can be requisitioned with resources. Battlestar Galactica Online is designed to promote flexibility and freedom of choice for its players and will not forced players into flying particular types or sizes of ship, but there will be advantages for certain types of ships depending on the quest and gameplay situation.

Keep track of Battlestar Galactica's development at the official site and check out the new screens in our BGO gallery.
