Star Trek game based on 2009 film announced, co-op as Kirk and Spock
Paramount Entertainment has announced Star Trek, and action-adventure co-op experience from Digital Extremes working closely with Bad Robot, K/O Paper Products and Damon Lindelof.
The game allows players to run around for the first time ever in a game as Kirk and Spock in an adventure which continues the one set out on by director and producer J.J. Abrams in the 2009 Star Trek film.
It contains 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.”
Star Trek features an original story by BAFTA award winner and God of War writer, Marianne Krawczyk, in collaboration with the writer and producers of the new Star Trek films, Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman.
It will be made available in 2012 for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
