Star Trek game coming from Darkness 2 dev

Co-op action adventure title casts players as Kirk and Spock

Digital Extremes is developing a new Star Trek game that's set to be shown off for the first time at E3 next week.

Set for release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC next year, it'll feature an original story and an "unprecedented co-op experience" that casts players as Kirk and Spock for the first time in a game.

According to the press release, the game "continues the adventure that director and producer J.J. Abrams envisioned with Star Trek (2009), boasts a stand alone story filled with action-packed combat as Kirk and Spock must work together to stop a legendary enemy race bent on conquering the galaxy".


Paramount Digital Entertainment president Tom Lesinski said: "Star Trek challenges the boundaries of co-op gameplay with a galactic adventure that gamers and fans have never experienced.

"Working closely with the Star Trek filmmaking team throughout development, the game is sure to deliver AAA production values, a wide variety of gameplay and all the action you would expect from the hit franchise. This will be the definitive Star Trek gaming experience."

Digital Extremes has previously worked on or is currently developing Bioshock 2, Unreal Tournament, Dark Sector and The Darkness II.
