A game that has been under the radar quite a bit has been the free to play MMO, Battlestar Galactica Online.  While you may or may not be aware of this niche title, what you now know is that more ship classes are being released to players of the game, including the latest announcment of the Brimir Class Carrier that will be available for the Fall.  As with most free-to-play games, there is the option to purchase this ship outright with real currency or to save up in-game currency and get it that way.  The Brimir Class seems to bet he largest ship that will be available for purchase, so you don't want to miss out on your chance to have it!


Today our news update unveils a new carrier-class ship coming to Battlestar Galactica Online this fall.  The image of the Brimir Class Carrier is attached, along with its information below.
 
Brimir Class Carrier
The Brimir Class Carrier will be the largest ship yet, bringing new functionality to players with the ability to launch strike craft – something no other ship can do in Battlestar Galactica Online. As the largest derelicts discovered by the Colonial fleet so far, the Brimir Class Carrier shares many similarities with early Colonial designs that were eventually replaced by Battlestars.  This Tier 4 ship is capable of rapidly deploying a squadron of strike craft and acting as a tender for larger vessels. Although heavily armored, it is best suited for fleet support operations.  It has not been decided if the strike craft will be NPC or player controlled, but players will be able to attack specific targets with them. The Brimir Class Carrier will be available for cubits this fall, the in-game currency that can be earned through gameplay, or purchased. In addition to the new carrier-class ship, we are of course continuing ahead with new ship designs for Battlestar Galactica Online.
