This weekend Bigpoint, the producer of the browser based and free to play game featuring our favorite evil cyborgs - Battlestar Galactica, announced that they have reached the one million registered player mark. This is easily the fastest growing release for the publishing house previously known for its large crop of free to play MMO releases.
Bigpoint CEO Heiko Hubertz speak of the risks involved in taking on such a beloved franchise as Battlestar:
“There is always a risk when you translate a well-known IP into another medium. We built what we believed was a recipe for success; a fantastic gaming experience inspired by an iconic show, with the added benefit of being a free-to-play title. We are grateful to the fans for their support and interest in this game, and pledge to continue to improve and optimize the game.”
In addition, Bigpoint announced that the game has recently been updated to the newest version of the Unity engine it is based on. This upgrade improves overall stability and enhances special effects and graphics. For example, all ships now feature crisper textures and reflection-based shaders that deliver high levels of detail. While the graphical quality of BSG Online has always been high for a browser based game, these improvements add to the already great base.
