Wil Wheaton has joined the cast of the Firefly Online Game.
The Firefly Online Game (FFO) is a “multi-user strategic roleplaying game set in the universe of Joss Whedon‘s cult classic TV show, Firefly.”
In Firefly Online, “players take on the role of a ship captain as they hire a crew and lead missions, while trading with and competing against millions of other players like themselves. Much like the crew of Serenity, the Firefly-class transport ship featured in the original show, players must do whatever it takes to survive in the Verse: find a crew, find a job and keep flying.”
From Firefly Online HR: “Wil Wheaton has joined the FFO voiceover team and will be playing the part of you – that is, he will be giving voice to the male player character. We couldn’t be more excited that Wil is taking on this huge part. (There’s lots of Chinese cursing too!)”
“I am so excited to be part of this,” said Wheaton, “and not just because it means I get to finally be part of the best universe in the ‘verse.”
“I’m recording my dialog in a couple of weeks,” Wheaton added, “and when the game is released in Spring, I’ll be there with you as we pilot our own ships, interact with our favorite brown coats, evade the alliance, and, of course, aim to misbehave.”
