By Kevin Tavore, 5 months ago
Perfect World Entertainment announced today that Cryptic Studios, the developers of Neverwinter, will be bringing their PC MMORPG Star Trek Online to consoles later this year. At launch, the game will offer six years worth of content, including 130 episodes over 11 seasons and two expansions.

Players will choose one of three factions and design their character using 32 different species. If you're interested in where you'll fit into the Star Trek lore, here's what the publisher has to say about the game:

Star Trek Online is a free-to-play massively multiplayer online game where players can pioneer their own destiny as Captain of a Federation starship, become a Klingon Warrior and champion the Empire through the far reaches of the galaxy, or rebuild the Romulan legacy as the commander of a Romulan Republic Warbird. Its last expansion, Star Trek Online: Delta Rising, brought players into the Delta Quadrant and reintroduced them to iconic members from the Star Trek: Voyager cast including Seven of Nine, The Doctor, Harry Kim, Neelix and Tuvok. In Star Trek Online, players have the opportunity to visit iconic locations from the popular Star Trek universe, reach out to unexplored star systems and make contact with new alien species....

While playing through content in Star Trek Online, players will be able to visit iconic locations including Vulcan, Deep Space Nine, Earth Space Dock and more. Fly through the galaxy of Star Trek Online, with hundreds of classic Star Trek ships available, and engage in ship-to-ship combat. Players will be able to play through the game’s story content and reach the level 60 cap, all for free.
Perfect World Entertainment also released a console announcement trailer that shows off what the game is all about.

Star Trek Online will be available free on Xbox One sometime this Fall.
