If you’ve been keeping up with SDCC news, then you’ve probably heard of that Fox and QMx Interactive are teaming up to bring Firefly fans their very own online, social-mobile game in 2014. Yesterday, they released a trailer that teases the game, which you can watch below:

There aren’t a whole lot of details at this time except that it’ll be available for iOS/Android phones and tablets, with the possibility of expanding to other platforms afterwards. From the press release:

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.

Firefly Online 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

Fans of the show and movies will no doubt be all over this. Although I’m not one for social games or MMOs, I’m still putting my name on the registration list since I loved Firefly, and I’d be interested to see what a Firefly game will be like. Also, I love playing games on my phone, so the platform options work well for me.

If you’re interested in registering early, you can do so over at KeepFlying.com. The game is still at least a year away, so no doubt we’ll start to hear more of the details in the coming months. What do you guys think of the news? Will you be registered to play Firefly Online?
