Firefly fans have been waiting a long time for a new season of the show but while that seems unlikely for now, there is a game coming next year called Firefly Online and it is an official continuation of the universe seen in the TV show. The title was announced at the San Diego Comic-Con and is being developed by OMNi and Spark Plug Games with the aim of being released on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets sometime next summer.
In the game you play as a ship captain who is able to enlist a crew, trade various goods with other players as well as embarking on an array of missions.
Andy Gore, CEO of QMXi and Quantum Mechanix Inc. said of the announcement:
“At QMx, we know firsthand how great and powerful a franchise Firefly is and how mighty the Browncoats are.”
“It has always been our mission to bring the Verse to life for our customers in every way possible. The idea of creating an interactive experience where fans can have their own Firefly adventures — well, that’s just too shiny for words.”
Unfortunately there is no gameplay to show you as of yet but for now you can watch the official teaser trailer below and we will let you know more about the game when more information is released.
