The release date for the Star Trek video game has been announced.
Although players will have to wait until springtime to get their copy of the game, pre-orders for Star Trek have already begun.
NAMCO Bandai Games and Paramount Pictures have announced an April 23, 2013 release date for the Star Trek game for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and digital download for both PC and PlayStation 3.
Star Trek features a story written by Marianne Krawczyk, in collaboration with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, in which “players control both Kirk and Spock in a sweeping journey of epic proportions across unexplored planets and enemy battleships with the latest 23rd century weapons and gear.”
In Star Trek, Kirk and crew will face the Gorn, seen in the original series’ Arena.
Actors Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, John Cho and Anton Yelchin voiced the characters which they played in 2009’s Star Trek movie.
Those pre-ordering the game will be able to access an “Elite Officer Pack” which features “unique uniforms and exclusive items for Kirk and Spock.” The Elite Officer Pack consists of five packs: The Brawler Pack (Kirk leather jacket costume and Spock Vulcan Science Academy costume), The Academy Pack (Kirk Academy Uniform and Spock Officer Dress Uniform, plus an Academy Phaser), the Kobayashi Maru Pack (Kirk and Spock Kobayashi Maru uniforms), the Stealth Pack (Kirk and Spock stealth uniforms, plus Starfleet Type IV Stealth Sniper Rifle and extra ammo), and the Kelvin Pack (Kirk and Spock U.S.S. Kelvin uniforms and a U.S.S. Kelvin Hand Phaser).
