Artplant and Bigpoint have released an update on its free-to-play MMO Battlestar Galactica Online, which includes the new Battlespace sector, more advanced flight controls, and a new public test server.
From the PR:
“A new Battlespace Sector has been created for beginner level players (Level 9 and below) to experience intense space combat and accustom themselves to the instanced PvP world. Players who are eligible will be able to join this sector at anytime by clicking the ‘Take me to Battlespace’ button on the HUD, and will be transported to the Battlespace from anywhere in the galaxy.
“The 3D flight controls to enable better maneuvering and speed control for pilots in the game. With the highly-requested advanced flight controls, players will notice more dynamic transitions in various aspects of gameplay such as basic combat, mining, and camera orientation. The advanced flight controls offer users a smoother and more intuitive experience while engaging in epic dogfights.
“Troy is a new server dedicated to community testing. Players have the opportunity to check out new features and additions available for testing and provide feedback before they are deployed to the live servers. The new public test server will be used to support a wide variety of in-game assessments, and will not accept player payments. The first release of Troy includes improvements in the Leoben branch, which comes out this week.”
