We are creating a game that tells new stories, but with familiar places, events and characters. And all of it will be captured in the depth that our strategy game will offer".

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock" is a deep strategy game that also features a strong narrative with an extensive cast of characters, both new and from the existing lore. Fans will find all their favorite ships from Vipers, Raptors and Battlestars, to Cylon Raiders and Basestars, in addition to a brand-new range of ships designed exclusively for the game.

"Battlestar Galactica Deadlock is one of the most exciting projects we have ever worked on", said JD McNeil, Chairman of the Slitherine group.

Hello everyone. I am big fan of BSG series. When I saw that you are making a new BSG game I became so excited. I created a forum account and then went straight to fill the Beta-Test application but it shows me an error "Forum login credentials are not valid." While I tried to login into forum with the exactly the same pass/name and I made it.

So excited for a BSG rts game this is what my life has been missing.

I had the same thing worked once I logged into my forum account.
Verify the account in your emails sign into the account then go the beta section and fill it all out worked fine for me after I did all of that.

Definitely a very exciting franchise for gaming, and something that has been sorely lacking. I can't even remember the last BSG PC game that came out. I hope the gameplay is equally enthralling!

I'm trying to temper my expectations, but this sounds like a great premise for a RTS. The setup reminds me a lot of Homeworld, which to this day is my all-time favorite RTS. I really hope the developers played that game and frankly I hope they blatantly steal some concepts from it for this title (talk to the folks in legal - tell them it's a simple homage). Some other game styles I personally enjoyed and wouldn't mind seeing variations of in this were Sins of a Solar Empire, Stellaris, and even though it had its flaws - Star Wars: Empire at War.

On a personal note, I'd all but given up on RTS games (especially empire building/space fleet ones) because more and more it seems the trend in gaming is towards instant gratification. Honestly I play a lot of Battlefield 1 these days and as satisfying as killing an enemy might be (rinse & repeat), spending my time devising a strategy to defeat an opponent on this scale has always given me a much deeper sense of satisfaction. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come.

Yeah, that's pretty much my reaction as well. 3D space combat with a strategic and a political layer. Total War in space ?

This looks like its going to be a pretty awesome game!
The cinematic cut scenes looked pretty awesome to boot! I was wondering if you guys reached out to original visual effects team to help out?
My friend Adam Lebowitz worked on the RDM reboot and I am sure that he'd love to revisit doing effect scenes. Maybe you want to drop him message?
Shoot me a PM and I'll send you his contact info.

I hope they make an easy to use skirmish interface that will allow us to choose the forces we want to fight with and against. That way we an setup any kind of quick scenario we like. And speaking of scenarios, I hope they include an easy to use GUI mission editor so we can make our own missions and campaigns. And Mods. I hope they allow the workshop so we can make mods. I want to mod the ships stats, the fighters, add more fighters, add more ships, mods, baby! All these things help give a game longevity after the honeymoon phase of the game wears off.

I loved the re-imagined BSG and so I'm pretty curious about this game. Launch Vipers!
