The sci-fi title will release simultaneously on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Cryptic has enjoyed significant success with Neverwinter’s transition to the console world, so it makes sense to bring Star Trek Online along for the ride. The studio said that to make this happen, it’s had to streamline the HUD and rewrite the UI (think “radial menus”) to work with controllers. Other changes coming for all versions, including the PC, are lighting improvements and better episodic flow and player progression.
“We invested heavily in our engine and added several modern lighting technologies that significantly improved the visual quality of the game,” said Executive Producer Stephen Ricossa. “These technologies, and the skilled artists that bring them to bear, create an experience that is not only more immersive, but simply put, more beautiful.”
