Star Trek gaming plans will be pleased to know there will soon be a MMORPG available – well a Beta version anyway!
Atari and Cryptic Studios announced today that players can now sign up for a chance to participate in the closed beta test for Star Trek Online- a massively multi-player online role-playing game (MMORPG) that is set in the celebrated Star Trek universe and is the first MMORPG to offer both space and ground game play.
Players and fans can apply for beta test access by visiting www.startrekonline.com. A select number of closed beta keys will be given away through the website. Players who take part in the beta are able to experience the game early, but also report bugs and provide feedback to producers during development.
“Closed beta registration is an important step in bringing Star Trek Online to the public,” said Craig Zinkievich, Executive Producer on Star Trek Online. “We are looking toward the launch of our first-of-a-kind MMORPG with anticipation and excitement and we expect Star Trek Online to explode onto the scene, giving fans and gamers a Star Trek experience like no other.”
Missions will take players into the depths of space, across exotic planets, and inside starships. As the Captain of your very own ship, it’s up to you to lead your crew on missions that span a number of locations.
