Stark Trek Online Content Update
As listeners to the GodisaGeek podcast will know we are fans of the recently launched MMORPG, Star Trek Online. The game only went gold last week and already Cryptic are preparing content updates.
Apparently a lot of gamers have already reached high levels (due to early access and some hard core leveling!) and Cryptic don’t want to give these guys a chance to get bored. There are three special ‘Episodes’ on the way.
These Episodes are Borg-themed and explain what has occurred within the Borg civilization in the time between Star Trek: Nemesis and 2409, the year in which Star Trek Online occurs.
Previously, the Borg were thought to be severely weakened by the actions the USS Voyager, as fans of the show will remember. But in 2409, the Borg have regained and surpassed much of their old strength, and Episodes in the Borg Update will add more substance to that portion of STO’s story. Players will eventually face off against the Borg Queen, the leader of the Collective, but the road to her lair is a very dangerous path.
Some upcoming Episodes include:
· The Cure – A planet has been completely taken over by the Borg. Fight them for control of the planet.
· Khitomer Accord – Travel back in time and uncover and participate in the events that led to the release of old Borg you encountered in the Tutorial Episode.
· Into the Hive – Track down a missing Starfleet captain and come face to face with the new Borg Queen.
The Borg content is designed for high level players (level 43). Work your way up through the ranks and even you can challenge the Borg Queen.
This just backs up our opinion that Cryptic have created a Star Trek title for Star Trek fans. If they keep up the content updates and storyline events, STO could go a long way.
We have a full review of STO on the way. If you’d like to join us in the Star Trek Universe, send a message in-game to ‘elsk@elsk’ or ‘Imre Bergamasc@Tafari’.
