PC Star Trek: D-A-C Plans

Paramount Digital Entertainment officially announces Star Trek: D-A-C, which turns out to be headed to Windows as well as consoles, with the PC release to follow "shortly" after the console editions. Here are some screenshots, and here's the announcement:

LOS ANGELES – April 23, 2009 – Paramount Digital Entertainment, Bad Robot Interactive, CBS and Naked Sky Entertainment today announced the launch of Star Trek®: D-A-C, coming to Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft this May, and to PlayStation®Network and Windows PC shortly thereafter. Inspired by the upcoming “Star Trek” movie from Paramount Pictures, Star Trek: D-A-C is a fast-paced, top-down space shooter where players take the captain’s chair and engage in intense online multi-player or co-op battles. Pick up and play, then lead your team to victory.

“The upcoming ‘Star Trek’ film has ignited interest among a new generation of fans as well as longtime fans of the original,” said Tom Lesinski, President Paramount Pictures Digital Entertainment. “With that same goal in mind, Star Trek: D-A-C was designed to appeal to ‘Star Trek’ fans and gamers alike. The pick up and play arcade-style game play lets fans take the command and boldly go!”

Star Trek: D-A-C allows fans to directly control a variety of ships and pitch battles between Starfleet and the Romulan Empire. Up to 12 players can compete in thrilling team combat. There are three game play modes - single player, online multiplayer and online co-op. For each mode, there are three different game types - Team DeathMatch, Assault and Conquest. Players can choose from three ship types for each faction, including the new U.S.S. Enterprise featured in the “Star Trek” film. Each ship – the powerful Flagship, the nimble Fighter and the devastating Bomber – offers its own unique capabilities for players to master and manipulate as they fight for victory. In addition to featuring the new U.S.S. Enterprise, Star Trek: D-A-C incorporates music and signature sounds taken directly from the new “Star Trek” film.

Star Trek: D-A-C is scheduled to launch May 2009 for the Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360, and for the PlayStation Network and Windows PC shortly thereafter. It is rated “E” by the ESRB.

Reasons I don't like EF much:
that's just what you get when raven designs a game, though evidentally some people have a taste for inept design.

it's hard to track down anymore but if you can find a copy of it, elite force 2 is far superior. it was designed by ritual, who shifted it away from voyager onto enterprise. it had a more entertaining storyline presented with better aptitude, with less linearity and interesting puzzles.

not ritual's masterwork but a great game for anyone who likes to gun things down, trek fans especially i'm sure. ritual was really good at what they did, it's a shame the company fell apart and tried to go casual. christ, that's like valve going console exclusive.
