Paramount Announces Co-op Star Trek Game For 2012
As if a Star Wars MMO isn’t enough to get your sci-fi juices flowing at E3 next week, Paramount Digital Entertainment has just announced that they will be debuting a co-op action game set in the Star Trek universe at E3 next week.
Set in the universe of the recent J.J. Abrams film, the game will cast players as Kirk and Spock trying to “stop a legendary enemy race” (anyone want to bet it’s the Borg?) from taking over the galaxy. This isn’t based on any movie or TV episode. Instead, it will sport an original story penned by God of War writer Marianne Krawczyk, in collaboration with the writers of the new Star Trek films, Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman.
Digital Extremes, who is also working on The Darkness 2, is handling the development duties. Star Trek is slated to hit PC, PS3, and XBox 360 in summer 2012. The game will be shown at E3 next week, so we’ll have more info for you from the show floor.
Maybe it’s just me, but I’m kind of excited about this one. It’s been a while since we had a decent game set in the Star Trek Universe, and if Digital Extremes can put together a solid title, it could be one of next year’s summer blockbusters.
