Still beaming (get it?!... *sigh*) from the critical and consumer acclaim bestowed upon Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Bethesda has announced its new project for the Xbox 360 - a real-time strategy game based on the Star Trek licence, entitled Star Trek: Legacy.
Enlisted as an Admiral (bloody hell that was a quick rise up the ranks) you must command a fleet of war ships through a series of escalating real time battles, which offer all the recognisable starships from the numerous incarnations of the television series - including the tribble infested Enterprise of the Kirk and Spock era, right the way through to the battle hardened version of Jean-Luc Picard's reign. But for the rebel in you, there is relief away from the rules and regulations of the Federation, with the chance to pilot the powerful fleets of Klingon, Romulan, and Borg races too.
Developed by Mad Doc Software, creator of Star Trek Armada II, the game is due out this September for PC and Xbox 360, but won't be the last title we see from the Star Trek universe, due to Bethesda acquiring the rights from CBS Consumer Products to publish a series of games across all gaming consoles, an agreement that has the company looking forward to the challenge ahead...
"Being able to work with the entire universe of this beloved series is an incredibly exciting opportunity for us," said Todd Vaughn, vice president of development for Bethesda Softworks. "We have some great ideas about where we want to go with this license and having the exclusive right to develop and publish Star Trek games across all platforms ensures that every Star Trek game will be a quality game worthy of its name."
The game will also boast a full multiplayer campaign, from small-scale engagements to all-out war involving multiple star systems. Matchmaking, stat tracking, and player rankings on Xbox Live are set to be included, so you can check your progression from Kirk to a Kahn (or visa versa) easily.
