We’re all trekies at heart, right? Right. Now that we’ve got that clear, let’s talk about Star Trek: The Video Game.
Three years ago, shortly after the massive worldwide success of the re-imagined film version of Star Trek, the creators of the upcoming Star Trek The Video Game began their journey to bring an entirely new adventure to gamers.
“Kirk is this brash cowboy character, whereas Spock is the exact opposite – and when you break down Star Trek to those elements, you had to make a co-op game,” Miller says. “There was no other game we could possibly make.”
In the video below, Miller explains more about the creation of the game, and the co-op gameplay that gamers will experience in it.
Star Trek The Video Game is scheduled to launch April 26th on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.
