It's been six years since Star Trek Online, the massive multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMORPG) from Cryptic Studios, brought gamers one step closer to the final frontier with its launch on Windows PCs. The game went free-to-play in 2012, but today, it will boldly go onto two new platforms.
After announcing its plans to do so back in May, Cryptic has now launched Star Trek Online on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Here's a brief overview of what the game offers:
In Star Trek Online, customize your Captain and enjoy your very own Star Trek experience with over 125 episodes through multiple story arcs, featuring content in both space and ground. Explore strange new worlds, in this ever-expanding, completely Free-to-Play online universe. Explore strange new worlds and seek out new life and new civilizations in a vast, expanding universe. Experience a triple-A MMO game for free. Play from level 1 to 60 free of charge.
Star Trek Online has received a considerable graphics overhaul for its console debut, including improved lighting effects and richer textures. Its developers said they'd rewritten the entire back-end, as well as making "improvements to episodic flow and player progression".
In May, the game's executive producer, Stephen Ricossa also spoke about the challenges of redesigning the game's controls - which were designed to use most of a desktop keyboard - for use with a console controller.
