Courtesy of Multiverse, a Firefly MMO will soon be born. For all those fans who have spent the last few years emo over having no more of the beloved space western to whet their appetites, it’ll be time to saddle up in front of your computers soon enough. The first questions that pop into my mind are: can we play as the characters? If so, who can we play? Will it be set in 2517 again or a different time? Can we fly the Serenity? Can we go to Inara to have our health “refilled”?
Realistically, this could be fantastic if Joss Whedon is behind the creation of it. There’s no mention of it in the article, so we’ll just have to hope. Regardless of whether he’s on for the ride or not, the mere announcement of this game is enough to inspire instantaneous neural aneurysms in the geek community. We’ll be watching close for further updates on this one.
