At GDC 2010 today, NBC and developer Bigpoint announced an MMO based on popular science fiction show Battlestar Galactica. Battlestar Galactica Online is a browser-based MMO that promises “tactical space combat and adventure” when it comes out this fall. The launch itself will happen exclusively on SyFy.com for a 30 day period.

“Cooperation between Bigpoint and NBC Universal is a very important strategic step for us,” said Heiko Hubertz, CEO and founder of Bigpoint.

“Battlestar Galactica has a huge and passionate fan base. We are proud to be able to publish such an internationally famous title as one of our online games. For the first time ever, we’re relying completely on Unity in order to offer our users fantastic game graphics right in their browsers.”

The game will be based on the Unity engine and allows players to take on the role of humans or cylons in “tactical space combat, exploration” and “dramatic missions.” There will also be crossover between the TV series and the game, in order to “deliver an even more authentic experience.”
