Star Trek: The Video Game due April 23
Digital Extremes' licensed third-person shooter landing in first half of next year; PS3 version to be available digitally through PSN.
Spock and Captain Kirk will team up again April 23, 2013, when Star Trek: The Video Game comes to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Publisher Namco Bandai and Paramount Pictures announced the game's release date today. The game was first targeted to launch in 2012, but was delayed to 2013 in February.
Star Trek: The Video Game will be available for Xbox 360 and PS3 at traditional retail outlets, while the PC version will only be sold through digital channels. What's more, gamers will not need to trek to a brick-and-mortar store to buy the PS3 version, as it will also be available digitally through PlayStation Network.
All preorders for Star Trek: The Video game will include access to an "Elite Officer Pack." This includes "exclusive items" and "unique uniforms" for protagonists Kirk and Spock ranging from a Starfleet Type IV Stealth Sniper Rifle to a Vulcan Science Academy costume for Spock.
Star Trek: The Video Game is in development at Digital Extremes (BioShock 2 multiplayer, The Darkness II) with assistance from director J.J. Abrams' development company Bad Robot and the other producers. The game features an original story penned by Marianne Krawczyk, whose previous credits include God of War and Shank.
Star Trek: The Video Game will release three weeks before Star Trek: Into Darkness hits theaters on May 17, 2013. That film stars Chris Pine as Captain Kirk and Zachary Quinto as Spock. It is a sequel to 2009's Star Trek and sees the Enterprise crew return home to find an evil force besieging earth.
