The narrative adventure game Star Trek: Resurgence released digitally in May is getting a physical media release on October 27 for gaming consoles. The publisher just revealed some special pre-order bonuses and tie-ins with the long-running MMORPG Star Trek Online.
Resurgence and STO team up
The digital release of Star Trek: Resurgence was praised for its immersion and branching storytelling set in the Star Trek: The Next Generation era, including a very positive review here at TrekMovie. With launch bugs and issues now patched the game is ready for a release on physical media for Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One, PlayStation5, and PlayStation4.
Now Dramatic Labs, the independent game developer formed by Telltale Games veterans, has announced an exclusive pre-order/day-one bonus pack for the physical versions of Star Trek: Resurgence. For a limited time, pre-order and day-one (October 27) customers will receive two free codes from participating retailers. Code one unlocks Star Trek Online’s ‘Federation Elite Starter Pack’ for consoles, a pack that will prepare a new Federation Captain to begin their adventures in Star Trek Online, while code two allows a download of the first issue of the Star Trek: Resurgence comic book series, a prequel to the story told in the game.
Kevin Bruner, the founder and CEO of Dramatic Labs, expressed his excitement, saying in a statement, “There’s nothing quite like donning your away-team uniform and embarking on an adventure with friends. That’s why we’re absolutely thrilled to partner with Cryptic Studios and IDW Publishing to offer this incredible digital pack with our retail release. IDW’s comic series weaves an incredible story that seamlessly leads into our game, and seeing the Resolute in action in Star Trek Online is simply mind-blowing!”
Justin Laird, Producer of Cryptic Studios’ Star Trek Online, shared how special this partnership is for Cryptic Studios, saying, “The entire Star Trek Online team is thrilled to partner with Dramatic Labs and have the incredible opportunity to bring the Star Trek: Resurgence hero ship, the U.S.S. Resolute, into Star Trek Online. We can’t wait for captains to experience it. Whether players are new to Star Trek Online or have been exploring its vast universe for years, the ‘Federation Elite Starter Pack’ included in the retail release of Star Trek: Resurgence will help jumpstart your adventure in Star Trek Online!”
Resurgence is still available digitally for Xbox and PlayStation, and exclusively for PC from the Epic Games Store.
Resolute in STO
Players of Star Trek Online are also getting a Resurgence bonus. The U.S.S. Resolute, the hero ship of Star Trek: Resurgence will be available for free in STO from October 12 to November 30. The Resolute is a Centaur-class refit born during the Dominion War and serves as a science vessel on the frontier of Federation space.
