San Diego Comic Con always throws up something spectacular for the nerdy among us, and this year is no exception with the official announcement of Firefly Online. Details are pretty vague at the moment, but we do know it's a fully legitimate Firefly title, it's coming to iOS, and it'll be with us some time in 2014. From the official site:

FIREFLY ONLINE is going to be a game unlike any other and 99.9% of that will be due to fans like you who are already making it so incredibly special. As a registered FIREFLY ONLINE player, you will receive exciting news updates and be entitled to future discounts and exclusive offers. You’ll be the first to know when our new website features are unveiled, such as the blog, where you'll be able to track live progress of the game and ask questions of the developers, and the FFO store, which will be absolutely chock-full of shiny virtual loot (and real loot, too).

The announcement is accompanied by this official trailer, which while teasing shows us pretty much nothing at all. The official web page for the game – which is currently getting slammed – is the place to go to register yourself if you want to know the latest as it happens. If it doesn't load the first time, keep trying, you'll get through in the end. Who's excited?
