Kirk and Spock will be bringing co-op gameplay for an original Star Trek story written by God of War writer Marianne Krawczyk in collaboration with the writers and producers of the JJ Abrams reboot of the franchise, which will see the iconic pair battle against a legendary enemy race intent on taking over the galaxy.

“Star Trek challenges the boundaries of co-op gameplay with a galactic adventure that gamers and fans have never experienced,” said Tom Lesinski, President of Paramount Digital Entertainment. “Working closely with the Star Trek filmmaking team throughout development, the game is sure to deliver AAA production values, a wide variety of gameplay and all the action you would expect from the hit franchise. This will be the definitive Star Trek gaming experience.”

Working closely with Abrams' Bad Robot production company, developer Digital Extremes (The Darkness II, Dark Sector, BioShock 2's multiplayer) will be releasing Star Trek based upon the 2009 blockbuster movie in summer 2012. Check out the first screen below, which shows Kirk's malfunctioning sunbed.

Looks good. Will have to keep an eye out for this.

Hopefully it won't be like most film games where they add additional crap that no 1 particulaly likes

This game could be either really good or really bad. Unfortunately most Star Trek games haven't been very good. This one will hopefully change that like Arkham Asylum did for Batman games.

The last Star Trek film sucked badly so any game based on that will also suck.

@3 The new movie wasnt that bad, I ripped it apart before seeing it and I was surprised that it wasnt too bad, I know and agree, Shatner, Nemoy and all the rest cannot be replaced, but still the movie was decent, as for the game, I look forward to seeing and hearing more about it.

It would have been better if it was set in original or TNG 'universe'.

Also, is that a Halo plasma rifle in that picture?!

i thought that thinking of the star trek movie as a different franchise as though it had nothing to do with star trek made the movie more enjoyable. Not that ive ever been a fan of ST but a if the game is like Mass Effect it would be interesting.

I'm waiting for a developer to finally come out with a ST-themed game that does it justice. Could this be it? I really hope so.

I'm already cringing how bad this is going to be. ST games don't have a great track record.

I swear every single post I've seen from you has been negative. Do you honestly never have anything positive to say? The last Star Trek film was awesome, J.J brought us something that appealed to the fanbase without isolating anyone who wasn't a Trekkie before the film.

I've seen previous Star Trek games and they don't like that good so here's hoping the new one can repair ST's reputation in the games industry. (I reckon the enemy their talking about in the quote is the klingon)

Also something I've just noticed is that this is the guy who wrote for God Of War. Trekkies should proberly know that this game will most likely have a Mary Sue character who's gonna kill every major ST character.
