New Star Trek DLC For WWTBAM?SE

By Andrew Ogley, 4 years ago
Deep Silver and Doublesix Digital revealed today that their XBLA trivia game, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Editions (EU), will be receiving a new DLC content pack. This latest addition to their previously released packs could well prove to be a popular one as it features questions on one of the most famous sci-fi franchises of all time, Star Trek: The Original Series.

The press release from Deep Silver provides the details of we can expect to see from the upcoming DLC:
The Star Trek: The Original Series - Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Edition features the authentic look & feel of the popular science-fiction television series, as well as 600 questions based on the classic Star Trek universe. The Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? studio is set aboard a Constitution-class starship bridge; the host, audience, lifelines and contestants are all themed around the original Star Trek series. Players can choose from four avatars – Lt. Uhura, a Vulcan officer, a human cadet and an Orion slavegirl. The Phone-A-Friend lifeline also features eight characters from this iconic science-fiction universe.
To give an idea of how this actually looks in-game, Deep Silver have also released a number of screenshots and images featuring the studio set and some of the characters.
