Choose Your
Side and Make Your Escape This Week as "Battlestar Galactica" and "Exit"
Launch on Xbox LIVE Arcade this Wednesday!

 

The battle
between good and evil continues this week as “Battlestar Galactica” comes to
Xbox LIVE Arcade. Inspired by the hit television series of the same name,
“Battlestar Galactica” lets players choose their own path – be the hero and
defend Galactica or join the dark side with the ruthless Cylons. In the
thrilling puzzle action game, “Exit,” players will need to think fast to
save lives as the heroic Mr. ESC. Both games will be available on Xbox LIVE
Arcade this Wednesday, October 24, 2007 at 9:00 a.m. GMT (2:00 a.m. PDT).

 

“Battlestar
Galactica,
” developed by Australian-based Auran Games, involves intense
space battles as players choose to side with either the Humans or Cylon
forces. Piloting iconic ships from the Viper II to the Heavy Raider, players
lead a squadron through fast-action multiplayer space combat or can play
through the intense single-player campaign based on memorable episodes from
the TV series, including the riveting first episode of the continuing
series, “33,” and the 2007 Emmy Award-winning episode, “Exodus.” “Battlestar
Galactica” features both single and multi-player modes for up to eight
players, skill-based matchmaking and leaderboards. The game will be
available worldwide, with the exception of Korea, for 800 Microsoft Points
and is rated E10+.
