Star Trek Online is launching on consoles this fall

The big announcements for Star Trek Online keep arriving. Last week it was the reveal of the Agents of Yesterday expansion; this week it’s the news that Cryptic is bringing the game to consoles in fall 2016.

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.”

You can watch the console announcement trailer after the break!

Estranged A Dad Supreme BalsBigBrother Armsbend I’ve tried to get into this on PC on a few occasions but there are so many other options out there that I never stick with it. I agree with Estranged that having less MMO options on console is a plus. I will give this a whirl on my PS4 for sure.

Nice timing, now when we got remote play on PS4 I won’t have to fight for “TV rights” where it’s connected. If I read it right we will get controller support on PC too which may suit it better that classic kbd/mouse combo.

If developer’s from Warframe can do it,carry pc versions accounts over to the Xbox One console versions…..they have no excuses at all lol!!! its just people being totally lazy and careless toward the hardcover gamers who kept them a float and put in good amount of $$$ and time to keep them noticed they existed.

I saw no hint of these improvements. The game was never overly attractive but they’re gonna drop this ugly thing on a console? Did they fix the crew mwmber that wig out and run to the beginning of the map. Is there actually exploration?
