Interview with new STO Exec Producer Daniel Stahl – talks additional playable factions
The latest STOked podcast talks to STO’s newly promoted executive producer Daniel Stahl who addresses concerns about turnover at Cryptic and gives some updates on the upcoming Season 2 release, including the introduction of a new race. One of the interesting bits of news is that the Cryptic team are focused on increasing the content for the Klingon faction, including PvE (player vs. environment), and this focus on the Klingons means that additional factions like the Romulans is farther down the road.
