Star Trek game based on 2009 film announced, co-op as Kirk and Spock

Friday, 3rd June 2011 16:47 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

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.

    Aside from the developer which has never really had a hit by themselves (but when they left the UT games those games suffered) I am quite excited for this. The last Star Trek film was amazing and I loved the take on the universe.

    Action-adventure isnt really a genre i’d associate with Star Trek, not even the new movie. Not that they cant have action, but i’d see something very Mass Effect-like work best. Star Trek needs dialogue and management, not running around shooting a stuff.

    Cautiously optimistic… ?

    a Mass Effect like game would really work well for Star Trek.
    obviously the universe is there with so much back story from decades of star trek history, so theres enough of that.
    the shooting part on the other hand known from ME wouldnt quite be associated with Star Trek, but it would definitely attract more buyers.
