Gala Games reveals more details on upcoming 4X MMO Battlestar Galactica Eternity
The developers have revealed the name and have provided some information on gameplay of the 4X strategy MMO, saying players will get to pick one of 12 different factions every season and capture territories on the Cyrannus System attacked by an enemy named Cylon.
Gala Games and Revolving Games, the developers of Battlestar Galactica Eternity, a 4X strategy MMO being made in partnership with Universal Games and Digital Platforms, have revealed more details on the upcoming Web3 title.
Taking place in the same universe as “as the re-imagined series which aired for four seasons from 2003–2009 on SYFY,” players work together to reclaim back the Cyrannus System that has been captured “following a surprise Cylon attack.” Next to announcing the official name, they’ve also said that the game will take place on a huge map and will require proper teamwork in order to successfully conquer enemy territories “where large-scale combat plays a central role.” As tends to be the case with multiplayer-focused titles, this one too is divided into seasons, with each season going through the same scenario and phases, with the core goals of the phases being Rebuild, Reunite and Reclaim.
At the start of every season, players will have to option to choose one of 12 different factions, which are collectively called The Twelve Colonies. Each faction suits a certain playstyle, and all 12 will get the opportunity to “compete against one another.”
Players can optionally own ships and officers in the form of playable NFTs that will be tradable on secondary markets and also allow owners to keep the progress they’ve made from a season, transferring progression onto the upcoming ones. For those who don’t want to own NFTs, these same items may end up being possible to earn as in-game rewards.
The developers also mentioned that they plan to publish dev diary blogs “to give you more insight into the development process.” The homepage of the game’s official website can now be viewed, while more news on the blockchain title will be shared by the development team in the coming months.
Revolving Games raised $13.2 million back in September this year.
