Yeah, looks like a Gears clone. But probably worse. Whatever - it's been so long since we've even had a Trek game that could be considered CLOSE to competent I'll still buy it out of hopefulness. Who knows, maybe the story will even be serviceable.

Seriously thought, what's the last good Trek game to come out? Judgement Rites in 93?

Oh yeah! I forgot about those. They were pretty decent. So, that was 2003. Apparently we get a good Trek game every 10 years. So we're due again in 2013!

The fact that it's a shooter makes me more excited.

I'm okay with the shooter aspect too - as long as it's fun to play.

Bridge Commander was okay but a little stale and a little dull all around. Not what I would consider one of the greats.

The mod community turned it into a great game.

Early 2013 is all we've got so far. My guess is they'll drop it around movie time.

It'll probably be released at least a month or two before the movie. March is a likely release window.

Pre-order Bonuses Detailed:

NAMCO Bandai Games revealed the release date for STAR TREK: The Video Game. The game will release in North America on April 23, 2013 and Europe and Austrailia on April 26, 2013. The company also confirmed the pre-order bonuses that will be starting soon with participating retailers. The game is scheduled to be released on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

All pre-orders for the game will include access to the “Elite Officer Pack,” which features exclusive items and unique uniforms for legendary characters Kirk and Spock, who play front and center in a completely new story created especially for STAR TREK: The Video Game which was written by BAFTA award winner Marianne Krawczyk.

The exclusive “Elite Officer Pack” will include:

  • Stealth Pack – Kirk and Spock stealth uniforms, plus Starfleet Type IV Stealth Sniper Rifle and extra ammo
  • Brawler Pack – Kirk leather jacket costume and Spock Vulcan Science Academy costume
  • Kelvin Pack – Kirk and Spock U.S.S. Kelvin uniforms, plus U.S.S. Kelvin Hand Phaser
  • Academy Pack – Kirk Academy Uniform, Spock Officer Dress Uniform, plus Academy Phaser
  • Kobayashi Maru Pack – Kirk and Spock Kobayashi Maru uniforms
Here's the weird thing - I see no sign of any preorders existing for PC players. Are they gonna get screwed?

PC Gamer almost always get screwed for multi-platform releases, either by late release dates, shoddy ports or both.

I'll be buying for the PS3 on release day. The only way I'd buy the PC version is if there's a strong Mod community that crops up around the game.
