Welcome to the open space of the Verse! Meet thousands of other players, as you hire a crew, upgrade your ship, transport your goods, and fight against anyone who tries to make your life even harder. Life in the Verse is not all butterflies and rainbows…
The Firefly franchise has done something that not many other brands have been able to achieve in this way. The original show created by Joss Whedon came out in 2002 and unfortunately only ran for 14 episodes. Despite only having had such a short-lived run, the series managed to attract a very devoted fanbase, whose constant demand for more content with the Serenity crew has resulted in the release of a film, novel, several comics, and the online game called Firefly Online.
The latter allows you to jump into the world of Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds and his 8-person crew. In the original TV show, the Serenity crew travels through the so called Verse to make a living on the outskirts of society, as part of a galactic pioneer culture. Trading, selling, and survival are the main factors of everyday life. The online game allows you to become the ship captain of your very own crew in the vastness of the Verse.
Developed by Quantum Mechanix Inc. in cooperation with Spark Plug Games, the strategic RPG lets you hire your very own crew and purchase your own spaceship. Complete objectives and quests in order to gain experience and level up. Only then will you have what it takes to upgrade your vessel and complete more advanced tasks. Like in the television series, you will have to watch your back in the MMO. Don’t blindly trust others since everyone is also simply trying to get by and survive.
Firefly Online is a true massively multiplayer online game featuring a world with thousands of other captains who you will always bump into. Interact with them either on a friendly or hostile basis to get what you need in order to progress. The role playing game is also available for all iOS and Android smartphones and tablets allowing you to bring the experience wherever you go.
Firefly Online is the perfect way to interact with other fans of the show who have not allowed the franchise to wither away after it was cancelled on TV.
