Star Trek announcement

Star Trek, a brand new co-op adventure video game under development by Digital Extremes (The Darkness 2), was announced for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PCs for summer 2012. I'm showing great restraint in not leading with "set phasers for fun," but considering the game casts player as Kirk and Spock from the J.J. Abrams Star Trek reboot, I'm very, very giddy to see it at this year's E3 2011.

According to Paramount Digital Entertainment, Star Trek will continue the adventure from the movie, with an original story and "unprecedented co-op experience." The story will revolve around Kirk and Spock working together to stop a legendary enemy race bent on conquering the galaxy. Any bets on which race? I'm going with Tribble, because that would be awesome.

"Star Trek challenges the boundaries of co-op gameplay with a galactic adventure that gamers and fans have never experienced," said Tom Lesinski, President of Paramount Digital Entertainment. "Working closely with the Star Trek filmmaking team throughout development, the game is sure to deliver AAA production values, a wide variety of gameplay and all the action you would expect from the hit franchise. This will be the definitive Star Trek gaming experience."

God of War writer and BAFTA award winner, Marianne Krawczyk, will craft the story for the game, in collaboration with Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the writer/producers of the new Star Trek movies. In a similar spirit, Digital Extremes will be working closely with Bad Robot, K/O Paper Products and Damon Lindelof to insure the game meets a higher standard of Star Trek game than say...err..  this one.

Star Trek is coming for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PCs in summer 2012.
