Posted By | On 16th, Sep. 2011 Under News | Follow This Author @GamingBoltTweet


Bigpoint has announced that Battlestar Galactica Online has surpassed five million registered players worldwide since its February launch.

“As BSGO continues to evolve, we’re excited to offer new content to the fans and growing community,” said Sarah Levantine, Producer, Bigpoint. “We listen very closely to what the players ask for and are happy to announce that more features and items, including a number of new ships, are on the way.”

Beginning mid-September, basic models of both vessels will be obtainable with Cubits, BSGO’s in-game premium currency that can be earned through gameplay or purchased with real money, along with advanced models that will enable mission flexibility. The recently unveiled Brimir Class Carrier is also scheduled to become available this fall, though its size, complexity, and impact on game balance must be optimized before its general release.


Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

  • f2p browser based game bragging about numbers is…well, pretty damn stupid. Seeing how JUST cause people registered doesn’t mean the game is good, actually if people thought about things like this it’s actually not something to brag about.

    Now if they said active players thats a different story, but registered players could mean 4.5 million of them registered, played for 5 mins and never returned. NO ONE ever unregisters for a f2p game, especially browser based ones, IF..IF there’s even that option.

    It’s like the ToR pre-order numbers hype. Pre-orders DO NOT mean guaranteed sales and they sure as shit don’t have anything to do with subscription numbers.

    • EHh, stop being so negative. You do need to register, so at least there’s the initial interest … and as for free browser based games go, it’s rather decent – as a fan project. I doubt it means much to anyone else, but being able to walk parts of the galactica and fly vipers, taking down cylons… it’s quite the awesome feeling for any fan of the show.
