The Battlestar Galactica MMO was created by man. It evolved. It rebelled. There are many copies. And it has a plan…

To enter open beta in a couple weeks. (Ok, so maybe it’s not the most eventful rebellion.)

Over on the official Battlestar Galactica Online forums, Bigpoint announced that its virtual take on the revered sci-fi franchise is gunning for a February 8 open beta.

The whole thing will take place on global servers that only allow English chatting, but aspiring toasters and toastees will be able to choose from a number of different languages for their game clients.

So, what does a Galactica MMO actually entail? Well, based off a recently released trailer, there’s plenty of flying and, er, robo-walking down corridors (which is fine for Cylons, but humans, well, not so much). Also, you’ll apparently be able to build all the way up to commanding a fleet, which sounds like a completely reasonable excuse to regularly dress up as Edward James Olmos if we’ve ever heard one.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
