Battlestar Galactica Online MMO in the works!

Frakkin' awesome! Fidgit reports that Norwegian game developer Artplant is building Battlestar Galactica Online for massively multiplayer online gaming publisher Bigpoint.

"Leading [MMO publisher Bigpoint's] product slate for 2010 will be Battlestar Galactica Online, a tactical space combat and adventure MMOG based upon Syfy's Battlestar Galactica series. The game, inspired by one of the most popular science fiction series in television history, will launch worldwide exclusively this fall on for a 30 day period. The Unity co-developed MMOG will offer state of the art graphics that can be played directly in an Internet browser.

Players will be able to choose to play as cylons or humans in a constant struggle to control the universe or just survive its perils. A blend of tactical space combat, exploration, and mission-based gameplay will provide a diverse experience. The dramatic missions will define the game's overall storyline, enabling the player to delve into mysteries of the Battlestar universe. Battlestar Galactica Online will create a new standard for web games, with beautiful 3d graphics and innovative game mechanics bringing a new level of game play to browser based MMOG. Assets from the television production will be integrated into the game to deliver an even more authentic experience."

Definitely awesome! I can't wait to see how this progresses, and what it looks like. I've played some browser based games (Quake Live) and they're really good with 3D graphics and everything I'd expect from a game. Hopefully this will be the same!
