Star Trek Online is coming to consoles. The six year old PC free-to-play MMO is being ported to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this year. Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios are reworking the user interface and interactions to work better with controllers, adjusting player progression and episodic story flow, and implementing a new lighting engine for the console platforms. The game will remain free-to-play.
Over our storied history we’ve seen a new faction, two level cap increases, more episodes than any 5 seasons of any Star Trek series, the creation of over 100,000 player generated missions, and celebrity voice work from every era of Star Trek.
That’s a lot of red shirts getting killed. The console version of Star Trek Online will launch simultaneously on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in the fall.
