Ready yourselves, because Bigpoint’s Battlestar Galactica Online goes from closed to open beta on February 8. The MMO is browser based, meaning whether you’re on a Mac or PC or whether you’re at work or at home, you can pilot your Vipers or Cylon Raiders free of charge, though upgrades and whatnot will take real cash money.
Initially, three servers will be launched for open beta: Caprica for the U.S. West coast, Scorpia for the U.S. East coast, and Tauron for players located in the EU. However, all players will be expected to use English in common chat channels, even on the EU server. The only exception is in Squad and Wing chat, which is left up to players. Any other language used in open channels will cause you to be ganked with a GM banhammer and be sent to appeal on the forums.
