Stargate MMO on the way

So cheer up, SG-1 fans.

Just a week after Australian developer Perception cancelled its almost-finished Stargate SG-1 game, a new MMORPG based on the hit TV series has been announced.

Stargate Worlds is being produced by MGM Interactive and Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment for the PC. We're promised lots of exploration and adventure plus a bit of ranged combat, "set in worlds of historical human time periods, alien environments and outer space locations."

You'll join other players to form a team of soldiers and scientists, travelling through the Stargate to forge alliances, set up trade deals and investigate ancient mysteries. Plus you'll be tasked with defending earth from hostile forces such as the Goa'uld and Ori.

"We chose to entrust the franchise to Cheyenne because we are confident in their ability to create a triple A Stargate MMO," said MGM bigwig Travis Rutherford.

"Together we can give both the Stargate fans and gaming enthusiasts what they want by combining a strong brand, cutting edge technology, exceptional art, usability, and a fantastic game playing experience."

A release date for Stargate Worlds has yet to be announced.

It's no Babylon 5 though, is it.
