William Shatner Brings His Voice to Elite: Dangerous
You can pretend like your ship AI is Captain Kirk (for a price).
A new voicepack is on the way for space game Elite: Dangerous, and it features a performance by the man responsible for Star Trek's iconic Captain Kirk, William Shatner.
Known as Orion, the voice pack features more than 1,300 phrases, according to a listing on HCS VoicePacks. You can hear a sampling of these in the videos above and below.
Orion is due out on April 8 for 10 GBP (about $14), but you can preorder it now through the HCS website, which enters you to win various prizes. These include photos signed by Shatner, signed copies of his book about Leonard Nimoy, and exclusive artwork from developer Frontier.
In order to make use of the voice pack, you'll need a copy of both Elite and the VoiceAttack software, which costs $8.
Elite will be a launch game for Oculus Rift when it's released later this month, Frontier recently announced. The Rift-enabled version will be available to current owners of the game for free.
