SDCC 2013: Firefly Online Role Playing Game is Announced

firefly-onlineHere’s one for all your Browncoats out there. At the SDCC they’ve just announced a Firefly Role Playing game that will be coming out next summer. Check out the info below as well as a trailer.

Firefly Online is a social role playing game (RPG) based on Firefly, Joss Whedon’s cult-hit television series. Firefly Online (FFO) is currently in development for iOS and Android, and may expand to include additional platforms.

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.

FFO provides a variety of gameplay activities and systems so that players can fully experience life in the Verse.

  • Assume the role of a ship captain – create a crew and customize a ship
  • Aim to misbehave in space and planet-side adventures
  • Cross-platform player experience across devices (pick-up and play from anywhere)
  • Unique social features connecting Firefly fans
    • Create a shiny ship and explore the Verse

I know there’s not in game footage but hearing that music and watching trailer the moment it was done I registered. I think, if handled right, a Firefly RPG could be bleeding fantastic. There’s no plans for console or PC version but the makers haven’t ruled that out.

It’ll initially be available for smartphones and tablets but we’ll see how things go.

Keep on  flying!
