Star Trek – video game debut at E3
“Damn it Jim, I’m a video game, not a movie!”
Paramount Digital Entertainment (PDE) is going to show off their new Star Trek video game at E3, June 7-9. The game follows in the new storyline from the 2009 movie. It’s not exactly a movie game though, because although it is connected to the new mythos, it has a new standalone storyline written up by Marianne Krawczyk (God of War) together with the writers from the film, Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman. We’ll have to see if it has what it takes to jump away from the movie/video game curse, but they’ve got a good start with the actual writers working on it.
Game is currently still in development by Digital Extremes, Bad Robot, K/O Paper Products and Damon Lindelof with a projected release of summer, 2012. It will be a co-op game where you can take control of either Kirk or Spock in a race to stop a legendary enemy race from conquering the galaxy. Pretty standard fare for these two. It will be released onto the Xbox 360, PS3, as well as Windows for the PC.
