Star Trek Online Launches On Consoles
Today, Perfect World Entertainment Inc., a leading publisher of free-to-play MMORPGs, and Cryptic Studios announced Star Trek Online: Agents of Yesterday is now available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The third official expansion for the 100% free-to-play MMORPG based on the iconic Star Trek universe sends players back in time to create a new captain from Star Trek: The Original Series. Captains will participate in new task force missions, fly classic era-appropriate Starships and explore episodic story content inspired by the television series that started it all.
All Star Trek’s timelines and universes collide when enemies threaten to destroy the past during Agents of Yesterday, calling for the recruitment of Star Trek Online’s bravest to become Temporal Agents and protect the Federation. After creating a new captain from Star Trek: The Original Series, players can command one of several 23rd Century Starships and explore nostalgic locations taken directly from the television show that gave way to one of the most popular science-fiction franchises of all time. The expansion also features an exciting cast of characters voiced by beloved Star Trek actors, including Chekov (Walter Koenig), Scotty (Chris Doohan, son of James Doohan), Temporal Agent Daniels (Matt Winston), Admiral Leeta (Chase Masterson) and Cyborg Crewman 0718 (Joseph Gatt).
