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.
At the heart of every Star Trek adventure are two unforgettable heroes: Kirk and Spock – and just as their cooperation drives the story of Star Trek on screen, it needed to form the core of the video-game experience, says Brian Miller, executive producer of Star Trek The Video Game, which will be released April 26.
“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 a new video feature released today by Paramount Pictures, Miller explains more about the creation of Star Trek The Video Game and the co-op play that gamers will experience in it.
Star Trek: The Game will be launched on April 26, 2013, in Europe and Australasia.
