The MMOG, Inspired by One of the Most Popular Science Fiction Series in Television History, to Launch Exclusively This Fall on for a 30 day Period

HAMBURG, November 8, 2010 - Bigpoint ( - the global market leader
in browser-based massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs) - today announced
that it has successfully launched the first phase of its Battlestar Galactica
Online closed beta. The initial phase granted thousands of hand-selected
players from Europe and the United States the opportunity to experience one
of the most ambitious browser-games ever developed.

During the closed beta period, players are prompted to
complete a tutorial mission as either a human or Cylon. Once completed,
players are free to explore the universe on their own, where they can engage
in PvE and PvP combat, and conduct mining operations. Players can also tour
the Battlestar Galactica, a Cylon Basestar, and a number of space outposts
and planet bases.

Bigpoint will continue to increase the number of closed beta
participants on a daily basis in advance of the official open beta launch,
planned this December. Battlestar Galactica Online is licensed through
Universal Partnerships & Licensing on behalf of NBC Universal Television
Consumer Products Group.
