If you have seen every episode of Stargate ever made and know which Goa'uld is still alive, where the Asgards come from, what the Ancients really want and are eagerly anticipating Stargate Universe, then you should read on. If you're even mildly interested in any of the Stargate mythos then you should read on. If you're at work and have nothing better to do, yes, you too should read on. Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment will give fans a sneak peek of Stargate Worlds, their new MMORPG - when the first trailer debuts Jan. 4, 2008, with the mid-season premiere of Stargate Atlantis on the SciFi Channel. Stargate Atlantis returns on Jan. 4 at 10/9 p.m. EST/CST.

That's TODAY 

 

Starting Jan. 18, 2008, viewers can enter for a chance to win an opportunity to have their name or likeness incorporated into Stargate Worlds in the Unlock the Gate Sweepstakes.* Viewers are invited to watch Stargate Atlantis each Friday starting on Jan. 18, 2008 at 10/9c on SciFi to retrieve a unique code to enter the sweepstakes.

“We have spent years looking for a quality gaming partner to extend the Stargate franchise beyond television and DVDs,” said Travis J. Rutherford, executive vice president, MGM Consumer Products and Location Based Entertainment. “This trailer is an exciting preview of that extension, and we are proud to have the opportunity to debut it as part of the Stargate Atlantis return. Our fans will jump at the chance to have their likeness incorporated in the MMORPG and become a part of Stargate history.”

Based on MGM's Stargate franchise, Stargate Worlds features tactical modern combat vs. science-fiction weapons and instant travel across the galaxy in a story-driven MMORPG.

In Stargate Worlds, gamers will explore new worlds and encounter ancient, alien cultures across an evolving galaxy. While staying true to the spirit of the Stargate franchise to which its fans have become familiar, Stargate Worlds will also introduce new worlds, characters and action to the Stargate universe that are far beyond the scale that can be shown on television.

“Stargate Worlds is about instant adventure in an epic, evolving universe,” said Stargate Worlds studio head Dan Elggren. “That’s what fans and gamers are going to see in this trailer.”

Stargate Worlds is based on Stargate SG-1 and the show’s spin off Stargate Atlantis. Stargate SG-1 is the longest-running science fiction series in US television history, airing 213 episodes over 10 years.
