Battlestar Galactica coming to Xbox and the PC

Sierra Online is bringing the popular sci-fi show Battlestar Galactica to the Xbox Live network and PCs in a new video game this fall. The space flight simulator will have ships from both the human and Cylon races and will feature single and multiplayer games. A single player campaign mode will also have missions that resemble episodes from the television series.

The Battlestar Galactica television series is a remake of the popular series first aired way back in 1978. In the show the human race is fighting for survival after a massive Cylon sneak attack. The survivors have formed a space caravan of sorts led by the Battlestar Galactica, a massive warship that can launch fighters and missiles. The new series has become a cult favorite and has received industry awards for writing excellence.

To spice up interest, Sierra Online has set up a website with the latest news. Xbox Live users can also download pictures through Xbox Live Marketplace.
