The Trekkies have had a busy weekend. Rumors started floating around about a possible Star Trek MMORPG and the fan base went speculating, while pros and cons were exchanged.
Today won't be any less busy as Perpetual Entertainment announced that the rumors were indeed founded as it has secured the exclusive worldwide rights from Viacom to develop and publish a massively multiplayer online game based on Paramount Pictures' Star Trek franchise.
The obtained license covers all live-action motion pictures and television series including, Star Trek, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise.
"The scope of the content license is extraordinary for a game of this kind, giving us the opportunity to immerse fans and players in the incredibly rich, diverse and exciting universe of Star Trek," said Joe Keene, CEO of Perpetual Entertainment.
Star Trek Online will deliver action, adventure and combat mechanics unique to persistent world games. Its design will include a rich array of solo and multiplayer missions set in space, on planets and in starbases throughout the universe. At launch, it will take place during the 24th century timeline in the series with other aspects of the Star Trek universe to be interwoven and added through expansions.
"Players will encounter characters, places, and situations from their favorite Star Trek movies and television series; will explore incredible new worlds; and will cooperate with or battle friendly and hostile races throughout the game," said Chris McKibbin, President of Perpetual Entertainment.
"Fans of Star Trek have been longing for a game that lets them participate in and explore the Star Trek universe," said Terri Helton, Executive Vice President of Viacom Consumer Products. "We have been searching for the right partnership for our time-honored Star Trek to create a game that not only appeals to fans but a broader audience as well. Perpetual's experience, technology and vision for this game make them the clear choice."
Star Trek Online is expected to enter public beta testing in 2006 and to launch by early 2007.
Ha ezt tényleg így megcsinálják, hát annak hatalmas sikert jósolok
