If you are a hardcore Star Trek fan, this might not come as big surprise as this news has been released earlier this year. But I had the opportunity to talk with a represent from Perfect World Entertainment about Star Trek Online.
Star Trek Online will follow Star Trek: Discovery into the binary star system with the multi-part adventure, Age of Discovery.
“Starting this fall, the PC version of the free-to-play MMORPG based on the iconic Star Trek universe will release the first installment of a continuing saga centered on the popular CBS All Access television series. For the first time, Star Trek Online players will be able to create a Federation Captain from Star Trek: Discovery and join forces with Starfleet Academy Cadet Sylvia Tilly, voiced by Mary Wiseman. Age of Discovery’s first installment will also introduce a new Discovery era tutorial, two episodes, new Reputation Tiers, a new queue (now referred to as a Task Force Operation) and several other new gameplay features.” – Perfect World
Age of Discovery opens up in the year 2256, just after the battle at the binary stars.
It will also feature a brand-new starting experience, allowing you to create a character from the Discovery era, a new Task Force Operation to defend Starbase 1, expansion to the game’s reputation system to Tier 6 that will unlock powerful new rewards. This first installment for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will be announced later this year, so be on the look out.
Star Trek Online is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online game that allows players to explore the Star Trek universe from within. Players can forge their own destiny as Captain of a Federation starship, champion the Empire through the far reaches of the galaxy as a Klingon Warrior, rebuild the Romulan legacy as the commander of a Romulan Republic Warbird or carry out daring missions on behalf of the Dominion as a Jem’Hadar soldier. Captains can also explore iconic locations from the Star Trek universe, make contact with new alien species and battle alongside other players in customizable starships. Star Trek Online is currently available on PC, PlayStation4 and Xbox One.
