Outside of the ever-popular Star Trek Online, there’s alarmingly little for Trekkies to dig into on consoles these days. We quite enjoyed the co-operative PSVR title Star Trek: Bridge Crew, but it’s been slim-picking beyond that. Dramatic Labs’ upcoming narrative adventure Star Trek: Resurgence will stir attention, then; it’s coming to the PlayStation 5 and PS4 next year.
For those not familiar with the developer, this is a new team comprised of Telltale Games alumni, and you can certainly see the influence in the release’s debut trailer. As you’d expect, this will be less about action and more about decision making, as you influence the outcome of the story based upon the things you say and the judgment calls you make.
The title’s set shortly after the events of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and stations you aboard the U.S.S. RESOLUTE. “Players will assume the role of two principal characters, First Officer Jara Rydek and Engineering Crewperson Carter Diaz, as they unravel a sinister mystery involving two alien civilisations on the brink of war,” the press release explains.
It continues: “Throughout the game, players will immerse themselves in the Star Trek universe, interacting with new and returning characters through a variety of dialogue and action gameplay to determine the course of the story.” You can check out the debut trailer above, which should give you a good idea of what you can expect come launch.
