Announced at the San Diego Comic-Con, the new Firefly Online video game is a multi-user, social online role-playing game that will initially be available for smartphones and tablets, including those based on iOS and Android operating systems.

The game will be released in 2014.

About:

Firefly Online (FFO) is a multi-user, social online role-playing game that will initially be available for smartphones and tablets, including those based on iOS and Android operating systems.

Players take on the role of a ship captain as they hire a crew and lead missions, while trading with and competing against millions of other players like themselves. Much like the crew of Serenity, the Firefly-class transport ship featured in the original show, players must do whatever it takes to survive in the Verse: find a crew, find a job and keep flying. 

Firefly Online is currently in development by QMXi and Spark Plug Games, an independent video game studio. The game is expected to be released during the summer of 2014.

Firefly Online players will play a captain in the Verse that’s struggling to get by, just like Capt. Mal Reynolds from the show, and dive in the following features:

• Create a crew, customize a shiny ship and explore the Verse.
• Aim to misbehave in space and planet-side adventures.
• Pick-up and play anywhere with cross-platform, cross-device game play support.
• Engage with unique social features connecting Firefly fans.
