Update 52.5 Image

Hello Battlestar Galactica Online fans,

We are deploying a new version of Battlestar Galactica Online on the live servers on Monday, November 23rd at 12:00 PM (noon) CET. This release will exclusively feature an update to BSGOs game engine. Besides it’s Graphics Engine “Unity” the actual game engine is based on the programming language “Erlang” and we have just updated it to the latest version.

Amongst other things “Erlang 18” features optimizations regarding the timestamp handling in the game code which means that it can handle these a lot faster than its predecessors. We therefore expect a decent reduction in CPU load on our side which will potentially lead to higher performance for all BSGO players. Please expect a server downtime of 30 minutes.


  • Update of backend game engine from “Erlang 16” to “Erlang 18”.

You can discuss this update in this feedback thread although there are no new features for you to discover apart from potentially better game performance. The actual Feature Update 53 is almost complete and will be released soon after this update.

Best regards,
The Battlestar Galactica Online team
