Star Trek game teaser trailer
Last Friday we reported that Paramount Digital Entertainment announced they were developing a new co-op game (for PC, PS3 and Xbox360) that "continues the adventure of JJ Abrams Star Trek" (see previous article). And on Monday night at the Sony press conference at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles PDE showed the first teaser for the game, featuring pre-alpha gameplay. And here it is (via IGN):
Looks pretty good for a game set for 2012, complete with lens flares, ground combat, space jumps, shuttle flying and more. Hard to tell anything about the story, but it seems to involve some aliens who are doing something bad to a star.
Phaser attachment and prequel announced too
At the press conference Sony and PDE also announced that the PS3 version of the game will include a Phaser attachment for the PlayStation®Move motion controller. They also announced there will be a downloadable "prequel" to the game available before release exclusively on the PlayStation®Network. This prequel will also work with the PlayStation Move.
Star Trek will be coming to the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC in 2012.
TrekMovie.com will be providing updates on this project so stay tuned.
