In 2013 Trek will return to the world of console gaming with the new "Star Trek" co-op game for XBox 360 and Playstation 3. And today Paramount and Namco/Bandai have released a new teaser trailer and some concept art. Check it out below.
New Teaser for Star Trek co-op console game – not another run and gun Trek
Here is the latest tease for the exciting game coming next year.
The new Star Trek co-op game is set between the 2009 Star Trek movie and the 2013 sequel. The XBox 360 and Playstation 3 co-op game allows you to play as Kirk or Spock and you can play along with a friend (in person or over the network). It will be released in early 2013 by Namco/Bandai.
And for those who are concerned about this being another Star Trek game that is all about shooting, it isn’t according to Sheldon Carter from Digital Extemes (the game’s developer), who tells IGN:
"The question that comes up a lot," Carter told IGN, "is, ‘What’s exploration like in Star Trek? What does it mean to seek out new alien worlds and technologies, and to relate to them in a way that’s not just cover shooting? That’s something that’s been on our minds right from the beginning," Carter said. "This is not just a game where you’re going to run and gun and kill everyone."
The game won a number of accolades at E3, and impressed TrekMovie.com (see TrekMovie first impressions). More details on the game, including the game’s villain (not the same villain as the Star Trek sequel) will be announced at the E3 gaming show this June.
Paramount also provided IGN with some concept art for the game
And if you haven’t seen it, here is the first intro trailer released for E3 last summer.
