Star Trek The Video Game

After some delays, Star Trek The Video Game will finally see a release next year on April 23, 2013 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and on PC. The PlayStation 3 version will be available through a digital download.

Digital Extremes, the studio that helped co-create the Unreal Tournament series, develop the long awaited adaptation of the seminal sci-fi series. In conjunction with Paramount Digital Entertainment, Namco Bandai Games will publish Star Trek The Video Game. The adaptation, which takes inspiration from J.J. Abrams’ 2009 reboot, has won several awards at E3. The game was originally projected for a 2012 release date, but got delayed to its new April 23 release date.

[adsense250itp]Star Trek The Video Game will feature plenty of the stars from the Abrams directed films reprising their roles as voice actors including Chris Pine as Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock, Karl Urban as Bones, Zoe Saldana as Uhura, Simon Pegg as Scott, John Cho as Sulu and Anton Yelchin as Chekov. The new game will take place between the first Star Trek film and the sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness. With an April release date, rabid Star Trek fans can see the crew take on the Gorn in preparation for the new film releasing in May. Handling writing duties on this new title is Marianne Krawczyk, who is a BAFTA award winning writer. Krawczyk has some impressive video game writing credits under her belt including writing on the God of War franchise and Chains of Olympus, in addition to writing on Shank and Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure.

Anyone who pre-orders the game on either PS3, Xbox 360 or PC will automatically get the Elite Officer Pack.
