Battlestar Galactica Deadlock is finally available to digitally pre-order on the Xbox One console and has been given the release date of December 8th.
The new game is based on the reimagined Battlestar Galactica TV series and is an action-strategy title set during the First Cylon War. Players will get to command classic BSG vehicles and meet famous characters from the series while also getting the chance to compete in online multiplayer battles.
The credited cast so far includes Jordan Byrne Jordan Byrne as Markus Thoon, Bennett Cousins as Lucinda Cain, Bonnie Gordon as Samantha Agathon and Erika Ishii as Helena Agathon. So there’s a few names you might recognize, Lucinda Cain is probably linked in someway to Admiral Helena Cain (played by Michelle Forbes in the TV series) and Samantha and Helena Agathon are more than likely linked to Lt. Karl ‘Helo’ Agathon (played by Tahmoh Penikett).
