First Cinematic from Firefly OnlineApril 24th, 2014
Firefly Online (FFO) is a multi-user, social online role-playing game that will be available for smartphones and tablets and the developers have also partnered with Steam so the game will be available on PCs and Macs as well.
In the game, players take on the role of a ship captain as they hire a crew and lead missions, while trading with and competing against millions of other players like themselves. Much like the crew of Serenity, the Firefly-class transport ship featured in the original show, players must do whatever it takes to survive in the Verse: find a crew, find a job and keep flying.
The video below showcases the theme music for the game along with much of the early design concepts.
Firefly Online players will play a captain in the Verse that’s struggling to get by, just like Capt. Mal Reynolds from the show, and dive in the following features:
• Create a crew, customize a shiny ship and explore the Verse.
• Aim to misbehave in space and planet-side adventures.
• Pick-up and play anywhere with cross-platform, cross-device game play support.
• Engage with unique social features connecting Firefly fans.
The game should be available in the summer of 2014. We’re excited to get our hands on this game and captain our own Firefly-class transport ship.
