Paramount Digital Entertainment confirmed that it will publish a Star Trek game under a license from CBS Consumer Products for Xbox 360, PlayStation3 and Windows PC next year.
The game is under development by acclaimed Ontario-based developers Digital Extremes, working closely with Bad Robot, K/O Paper Products and Damon Lindelof. Based on the 2009 Star Trek film, the game casts players as Kirk and Spock must work together to stop a legendary enemy race bent on conquering the galaxy.
"Star Trek challenges the boundaries of co-op gameplay with a galactic adventure that gamers and fans have never experienced," says Tom Lesinski, president of Paramount Digital Entertainment. "Working closely with the Star Trek filmmaking team throughout development, the game is sure to deliver AAA production values, a wide variety of gameplay and all the action you would expect from the hit franchise. This will be the definitive Star Trek gaming experience."
