In December last year, I wrote about Beyond the Red Line, a Battlestar Galactica sim built on the FS2Open engine. The much-anticipated first demo has now been released and is available for Windows and Mac OS X, with a Linux build coming very soon.

BSG: Beyond the Red Line

I just installed it and played the training mission, and I think they've done a frakin' awesome job so far. :) The opening menu, missions, ships, weapons and planet models have all been completely redesigned, making it almost feel like a brand new game, but with the same, familiar Freespace 2 controls. There's also an online multiplayer mode, which I haven't had a chance to try yet, but I bet that's going to be a blast.

If you're a BSG fan, go check this out. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go sharpen up my Viper pilot skillz and kick some toaster-ass. ;)
