Paramount Digital Entertainment has announced that a new Star Trek game will be coming to PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sometime in Summer 2012, and will take place after the events of the JJ Abrams film, and developed by Digital Extremes.
The only information regarding the plot is that Kirk and Spock must work together to stop a legendary enemy race bent on conquering the galaxy. The story is an original story by Marianne Krawczyk, a BAFTA award winner and the author of the God of War games, in collaboration with the writer/producers of the new Star Trek films, Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman.
Tom Lesinski, President of Paramount Digital Entertainment stated:
“Star Trek challenges the boundaries of co-op gameplay with a galactic adventure that gamers and fans have never experienced. 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.”
The game will be shown off at E3 2011.
