Activision has announced that 'Star Trek: Invasion', the very first Trek game for Sony's Playstation, is being made available at retail stores throughout the country this week. The game has a suggested retail price of $39.95, or for $39.99 at Amazon.com.
'Invasion' places gamers in control of the Federation's prototype single-pilot ships, in which they have to defend the Federation against alien threats and uncover the mystery that has opened a rift in the Beta Quadrant. The player is guided by Lt. Commander Worf, of course voiced by Michael Dorn. More can be found in the official press release.
In addition, Interplay has announced that their real-time strategy game 'Star Trek: New Worlds' is now also available at retail, but they don't mention a recommended retail price (Amazon.com has it for $39.95). The PC version is out now, the Sega Dreamcast version will be out on the 5th of October.
As previously reported, New Worlds offers ground combat using almost all new vehicles, including the Federation Phaser Tank, the Klingon Mobile Disruptor Battery and the DragonWraith Class Romulan Cloaking Tank, as mentioned in the official press release.
