Today at San Diego Comic-Con, Fox Digital Entertainment unveiled an officially licensed social role playing game in development that will be set in the Firefly universe. The trailer for Firefly Online (FFO) gives us a sneak peek.
Developed by QMXi and Spark Plug Games, the game will give fans a taste of what it might be like to be in Mal Reynolds’ boots as he captains a ship like Serenity. The description from the official site reads:
In Firefly Online, players assume the role of a ship captain as they hire a crew and seek out adventures, all the while trading with and competing against the millions of other players to try to survive in the Verse: find a crew, find a job, keep flying.
Browncoats will be able to customize a ship, find a crew, and explore the ‘verse while aiming to misbehave both planet-side and out in the black. There will be social aspects to the game as well, which will allow fans to connect with each other.
Firefly Online is set to launch in summer 2014 on iOS and Android, with potential for growth into other platforms. Head over to KeepFlying.com to create an account and get more information. Shiny!
