Bethesda just released the following trailer for Star Trek Conquest.
Bethesda have recently released about a dozen new screenshots for the game, here are just a few with links to more…
In the last couple of weeks there have been two informative interviews with Frank Arnot, producer of Conquest. Here a a couple of interesting tidbits about the game:
Armchair General: A great number of titles are adopting the turn-based/real-time strategy hybrid. How doesConquest differentiate from that trend?
Frank Arnot: I think what differentiates Conquest is that it is more of pick-up-and-play game. It’s a strategy-lite product with the option to simulate or take part in intense arcade battles. This should appeal to strategy gamers who don’t always have the time or desire to embark on epic campaigns, as well as arcade junkies who want a little more reason to be shooting everything in sight.
Star Trek Gamers: Since the Wii uses a rather unique control interface it will be obvious that control differences between the 2 games will be…well..different. What about the base features of the game, will the Wii and Playstation 2 versions be virtually the same game but only with control differences to cater for the entirely different control schemes?
Frank Arnot: In terms of game features, the Wii and PS2 versions are identical. The Wii control system does make a huge difference in the feel of the game, with it targeting, maneuvering, and firing. Additionally, the Wii runs at 60 FPS as opposed to 30 FPS on the PS2, and uses its extra memory for larger and greater bit-depth textures making it visually more appealing.
