Star Trek Online's PS4 and Xbox One Version Passes 1 Million Players
Free-to-play MMO reaches new heights on consoles.
Star Trek Online's console version launched in September and it's been a big hit, apparently. Developer Cryptic Studios has announced that the game has reached 1.1 million players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
In an infographic, the developer also revealed that 59 percent of people are playing as Command officers, with 22 percent playing as Engineers, and 19 percent as Science officers (via XboxAchievements). Starfleet was far and away the most popular faction, with 68 percent of players (752,000) siding with them; 20 percent (220,000) signed up with the Klingon faction, while 12 percent (132,000) went with Romulan.
The most-used ships on PS4 were the Negh'Var Heavy Battlecruiser, the Malem Light Warbird, and the Tactical Escort. On Xbox One, the most popular ships were the Negh'Var Heavy Battlecruiser, the Scimitar Dreadnaught, and the Eclipse Intel Cruiser.
