Paramount Digital Entertainment has announced that Star Trek™ will be coming to the Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 and PC in summer 2012. The new video game will feature an original story, unprecedented co-op experience, and will cast players as Kirk and Spock for the first time ever.
The game, which continues the adventure that director J.J. Abrams envisioned with the recent ‘Star Trek’ (2009) film, boasts a stand alone story filled with action-packed combat as Kirk and Spock must work together to stop a legendary enemy race bent on conquering the galaxy.
“Star Trek challenges the boundaries of co-op gameplay with a galactic adventure that gamers and fans have never experienced,” said Tom Lesinski, President of Paramount Digital Entertainment. “Working closely with the Star Trek filmmaking team throughout development, the game is sure to deliver AAA production values, a wide variety of gameplay and all the action you would expect from the hit franchise. This will be the definitive Star Trek gaming experience.”
The game is under development by acclaimed developers Digital Extremes (‘Bioshock 2′, ‘Unreal
Tournament’, ‘Dark Sector’, ‘The Darkness II’), and will be available in stores in 2012.
