We will continue to support the BSGO browser version but recommend the use of the client version if applicable.

The estimated game downtime is less than 60 minutes.

New Game ContentEdit

  • BSGO standalone client can be downloaded on the BSGO login page (web browser support will continue)

  • Top three videos from the 2016 video contest can now be viewed in the video gallery of the login page.

  • Fixed an issue where Strike ships that respawned in a carrier did not fully repair after having used the repair function
  • Fixed an issue that in some cases caused defense platforms to not respawn after having been killed
  • Fixed bugged explosion animation of capital ships
  • Fixed a name inconsistency in the Cylon line ship defense turret nomenclature
  • Fixed a bug that caused a cloud of stardust animation to stay behind (being active) after the animation gets switched off
  • Fixed a bug that caused the leaderboards to stop updating
  • Leaderboards: “delta” category has been renamed to “monthly variation”
  • Leaderboards: added a “+” sign in front of values that changed to the positive
  • Fixed an issue that could cause player respawning to not work under certain conditions
