For those Star Trek gamers who have not yet played Star Trek: Online, now is the time with the news that the game is now free-to-play.
Star Trek: Online went free-to-play yesterday, and those wishing to play need only to download the game to get started.
“We couldn’t be more excited,” said Cryptic Studios CSO Jack Emmert. “Updating Star Trek Online to the popular free-to-play model removes those barriers of entry that previously kept fans and casual gamers away. Anyone can download and play Star Trek Online at no cost. There’s no better way to see how sitting in the captain’s chair feels.”
There are now two types of members; Gold members, who pay $14.99 for extra perks, and the free Silver members. To see what is available for Gold members, head to the link located here.
An in-game store also offers the opportunity to purchase premium content and gameplay updates.
Star Trek: Online takes place in 2409.
