Simon Pegg, best-known to Star Trek fans as the new Scotty, will be voicing a character in Spare Parts, a new game developed by EA Bright Light for Xbox and PlayStation.
Pegg will be voicing the voice of supercomputer guide and companion Con-rad in the game, which focuses on two courageous robots.
According to the press release, “Spare Parts tells the story of courageous robots Mar-T and Chip, who find themselves dumped out with the rubbish on a strange planet. Working together in co-op mode (either local or online), and guided by Con-rad, the mechanical duo must find a way to repair an abandoned space ship and escape the planet before evil Lord Krung can dispatch his henchmen to destroy them. Searching the hostile environments for ship parts and currency, Mar-T and Chip will also collect upgradable action parts – such as Rocket Boots – to unlock new abilities that will aid them as they rescue other stranded robots, and battle countless enemies including the relentless Krofax troopers, hostile spider monkeys and even a Super Huge Mega Laser!”
Spare Parts will launch this winter.
