Namco Bandai's upcoming Star Trek The Video Game finally has a release date, as well as some nifty pre-order bonuses.
Fans waiting for new adventures of the Starship Enterprise have two new ways to enjoy more of Kirk and Spock in 2013. The new film, Star Trek: Into Darkness, is set to hit theaters May 17th, and now Namco Bandai has announced Star Trek The Video Game will arrive just ahead of that on April 23rd in the U.S. (or the 26th in Europe).
Star Trek features an all-new story developed by The Darkness 2's Digital Extremes, and allows players to step into the shoes of both Captain Kirk and First Officer Spock. Anyone who pre-orders the game at select retailers will receive a special Elite Officers pack, which includes new costumes and weapons to use in the game. Included therein is the Stealth Pack (Kirk and Spock stealth uniforms, plus Starfleet Type IV Stealth Sniper Rifle and extra ammo), Brawler Pack (Kirk leather jacket costume and Spock Vulcan Science Academy costume), Kelvin Pack (Kirk and Spock U.S.S. Kelvin uniforms, plus U.S.S. Kelvin Hand Phaser), Academy Pack (Kirk Academy Uniform, Spock Officer Dress Uniform, plus Academy Phaser), and the Kobayashi Maru Pack ( Kirk and Spock Kobayashi Maru uniforms).
Star Trek The Video Game will be available on the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
