Star Trek Pc Games

Boldly going where no game has gone before? It certainly seems to be that way. Perpetual Entertainment, a San Francisco based developer is busy working on what is shaping up to be the must play MMO of 2008.


Over the past few months they have slowly been letting fans in on what they have been working on for over a year now. They are about to launch the teaser site for Star Trek Online and have been talking fan sites about what's being happening.


So what's so special about Star Trek Online? Well, for a start, it's the first online game based in the Star Trek universe. It will potentially have hundreds of thousands of players that sign up just because of the fact that it's based of the long running TV series.


But what about the rest of us? It is just going to be another Star Wars Galaxies? It will be great fun to run around in familiar worlds for a while but it'll fail to keep you interest for more than a few weeks? I'm fairly certain the answer is no. This game is being designed not just to appeal to trekkies but general MMORPG fans. This is one of the main reasons I believe the game will be a success.


So how are Perpetual going to achieve this? The most important thing they are doing is creating a unique style of game-play. The basic idea is that in Star Trek Online you will be given an individual character just like in most MMORPGs, you train it up at the Starfleet academy, then you will be free to do what you want. The big difference with STO is that as soon as you go through initial training you will be given you own personal ship. You will be able to level this up and gain new abilities by upgrading just like you would with your main character.


This opens up huge possibilities for Star Trek Online. Perpetual have the abilities and license to create an unlimited amount of content for their new expanded Star Trek universe. They have plans to implement huge space battles and give the players the opportunity to explore and battle on many familiar planet surfaces. You will be able to for the first time explore the full interior of ships like the Enterprise-E.
