Star Trek: Spock, Kirk take on the Gorn in this video preview

Star Trek: The Video Game will hit stores two week’s before the film, featuring an evil Benedict Cumberbatch. A video preview to keep you in check until then is below.

During a showing of the game in London, Digital Extremes SVP and game producer Brian Miller and his team gave a 40 minute behind-the-scenes look at the game of five different levels.

“What we wanted to show the crowd tonight was what we planned from the beginning with this game which was to take Star Trek into a game and really bring it up to that triple-A quality – something Star Trek has never had before, “said Miller.

Since it is a third-person shooter, the game will contain all the conventions players are used to: cover, run in stealth, and other tenants. However, the game is more tailored to co-op so while Kirk really wants to rush into battle guns blazing, Spock will advise to take things more stealthy, which will give players experience points to upgrade their weapons should they choose a particular way of handling a situation.

You can find out more about the game through the video.

Star Trek: The Video Game releases on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 April 26.

    I hope not, but this game has failure written all over it. This will be a 75% game at most.

    That doesn’t surprise me at all. I made a point in a past comment that if you just turn your enemies into one-dimensional cannon fodder then you’re not going to have a very good game. Even Star Trek Online did a better job at fleshing out the gorn.

    I really hate this reliance on one-dimensional foes. This isn’t Space Invaders any more, developers can do better. That they’re not trying indicates half-arsedness.
