Namco Banadi and Paramount Pictures will co-publish the Star Trek game being developed by Digital Extremes. According to the official announcement, the game will set forth into the final frontier during the first quarter of 2013, just before the next installment in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek movie series.

Star Trek the game, first announced at last year’s E3, will feature an in an action-packed stand-alone storyline, where Kirk and Spock combine forces to “stop a legendary enemy race bent on conquering the galaxy.” When we say “combine forces” we mean that two players can take the roles of Kirk and Spock in glorious co-op play. Excited yet? so are we.

Coming Q1 of 2013, Star Trek will boldly go where many games have gone before – the Xbox 360, PS3 and the PC.
