WizKids Inc., creator of the runaway hit games HeroClixÂ® and Pirates of the Spanish Mainâ„¢, announced today its agreement with Universal Studios Consumer Products Group to develop a collectable card game (CCG) based on the new SCI FI Channel Battlestar Galactica series.
â€œWe couldnâ€™t be happier to add our tradition of innovative gaming to one of the hottest science fiction properties available,â€ said Mike Samora, vice president of Sales and Marketing at WizKidsÂ®. â€œThe success of the television show has introduced a new generation to the Battlestar Galactica story, and a game is the natural expansion of that introduction.â€ The game, slated for release in early 2006, features characters, ships and familiar scenes from the miniseries and television show on the SCI FI Channel.
Game play will mirror the intrigue of the television show: Players wonâ€™t know whom to trust, who the Cylon agents are or where the next attack will come from! Players will battle for ownership of resources and influence in order to control the fleet.
