One Million Registered Players for Battlestar Galactica Online

The top free browser MMORPG game Battlestar Galactica Online really puts the “massive” number of players in other games to shame.

Bigpoint, makers of Battlestar Galactica Online has announced that the popular free MMORPG no download game has passed one million registered players in just six weeks, becoming the company’s most successful launch since its founding in 2002. Based on the internationally popular Syfy television series produced by Universal Cable Productions, Battlestar Galactica Online is a free-to-play, browser-based space combat MMOG that combines high-quality, 3D graphics with intense gameplay.

“There is always a risk when you translate a well-known IP into another medium,” said Heiko Hubertz, CEO and founder, Bigpoint. “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.”

Through 2011, Bigpoint expects the number of players in Battlestar Galactica Online to continue to grow as it ramps up its international marketing and partner activities. Unlike most online game companies, Bigpoint leverages a vast, global network of over 1000 distribution partners who publish games on their portals. Moreover, Bigpoint localizes its games into 25+ languages and incorporates over 150 payment solutions, which helps it attract players more than 250,000 new players every day.
