Namco Bandai and Paramount Pictures have announced that the videogame adaptation of the current cinematic version of Star Trek starring Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto as Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock will be released on the 23rd April 2013. The game is being developed by Digital Extremes.

The game will be preceding the second Star Trek film, Star Trek: Into Darkness, which enters theaters in the 17th May 2013.

The publishers also announced the preorder bonuses for the game. It will include special access to the "Elite Officer Pack," which includes "exclusive items" and "unique uniforms" for Kirk and Spock ranging from a Starfleet Type IV Stealth Sniper Rifle to a Vulcan Science Academy costume for Spock.

Strategy Informer checked out Star Trek twice, once by Jonah Falcon, the other by Joe Robinson.

I missed both the previews for some reason or perhaps I just forgot to comment on them.

Anyway, even a Trekkie that I am I'll still wait for the reviews and in case of the game being bad a very massive sale. Bad or not it's still Trek, can't afford to be picky unfortunately :(.

Of course it will be bad, that a given but will ride the wave of the undoubted movie success. The last one had "Star Trek D-A-C" which I actually sunk quite a few hours into. Time for "Starfleet Command 4" methinks.

That would be great, loved the one with Chang.
A bit unlikely though considering that we already have STO filling a similar spot.

One can but dream, but you're right Geisha-girl "STO" does foot the bill these days. "Nexus - The Jupiter Incident" mod "Star Trek: Enhanced Space Conflict" also includes many iconic space battles from the films. Fought the Battle For Earth last night, trying to hold off a Borg Cube with the fleet from "Star Trek: First Contact". What an arse whipping.

Just watched a video of it and one from the Babylon mod and I have to say that I am interested :)

It's basically Star Trek meets Uncharted.

With a slight touch of Mass effect.
It doesn't sound bad at all but we're yet to see how it plays.

Should be given away free with every DVD or Blu-ray purchase.
