Firefly MMO Announced

Posted by on Thu, Jul 18, 2013 at 1:19 PM

Here is the trailer for the upcoming Firefly MMO that was announced yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con:

My guess is the only people who will play this are all us sad Browncoats who still cling to the memory of Joss Whedon's doomed series. There are a ton of crap MMOs out there, so odds aren't in its favor. And in fact, as noted here, the game sounds more like a Farmville app than an MMO. But we'll see... if you're interested you can sign up at KeepFlying.com.

And now a poll!

@2 I wish it was more like Eve Online... I'd love a big-budget, Eve-style game with Nathan Fillion et al providing voices. (Fillion did voices for the Halo series, I'm sure he'd be on board for a Firefly game.)

Firefly is well-suited for an open-world RPG, not an MMO.

Stupid.

Could be good if it is like Escape Velocity (the video game)

But, I doubt it will be anything like what we want/hope for.

Firefly.... you mean the show that was described as basically, "Where the South of the U.S. Civil War were the good guys"?

If it doesn't have Oculus Rift support, then its not a game worth playing.
