The new Star Trek game is set to be released in early 2013, just in time for the May 17 release of the new Star Trek film. Paramount will be working with Namco Bandai, who will be co-publishing the game.
The game, which was revealed at last year’s E3, has an original story, which is being scripted by the writers and producers of the film, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, working with BAFTA award winner and God of War writer Marianne Krawczyk. Players will play cooperatively as Kirk and Spock in the same prequel universe created by J.J. Abrams 2009 film.
Star Trek is being developed by Digital Extremes and will be released on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. A Wii U version might also be in the cards as the press release also referenced the game’s release on “major consoles.”
