Star Trek: Resurgence
Dramatic Labs announced the game arrives May 23 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. Originally set for a Spring 2022 release, Dramatic Labs is confident now to set a specific date. This is the first game from the publisher formed by a team of industry veterans, including twenty former Telltale developers that have worked on critically acclaimed narrative games such as The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series, and The Wolf Among Us.
Resurgence is set shortly after the events of Star Trek Nemesis and it is set on board the USS Resolute. It tells an original story with players assuming the role of two principal characters, First Officer Jara Rydek and Engineering Crewperson Carter Diaz. Here is the official game synopsis:
A worker uprising threatens the tenuous peace between two alien civilizations, and Starfleet is forced to intervene. Players experience the conflict and larger mystery from two key perspectives. The U.S.S. RESOLUTE’s First Officer Jara Rydek is part of the diplomatic envoy led by Ambassador Spock that’s tasked with finding a resolution – and uncovering the ultimate source of this tense situation. Engineering Crewperson Carter Diaz highlights how the mission plays out from the lower decks, caught up in the events in his own unique way. Throughout the gripping story, players can interact with the Star Trek universe like never before, with moments of authentic action and critical decisions that shape the broader narrative in subtle and unexpected ways.
Throughout the game, players will immerse themselves in the Star Trek universe, interacting with new and returning characters through a variety of dialogue and action gameplay to determine the course of the story. One of the key features of the game is players making choices that have important consequences for how the story progresses.
One of the familiar characters included in Star Trek: Resurgence is Ambassador Spock. You can see 7 minutes of early gameplay below featuring Spock (via IGN).
Star Trek: Resurgence is launching on May 23, 2023 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 gaming consoles, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and exclusively on the Epic Games Store for PCs.
