Star Trek Online is dropping 32-bit support in July

Time marches on, and it seems only appropriate that you cannot spend your time playing a futurist-looking science fiction series like Star Trek Online on the same technology forever. The title has announced that as of July 21st, support for 32-bit computers will be dropped; you’ll need to use a 64-bit computer past that date. As 64-bit versions of games and software have become increasingly common over the past several years, this will likely come as no real shock to most users, but those with older computers will need to upgrade in the next couple of months.

Meanwhile, the game has come down for maintenance today to apply a patch with various balance tweaks and bug fixes; that’s not related to client support, but it should make the game a bit smoother for players. Considering that players are also being tasked with fighting back against the Borg for a weekend event, smoother is always better.

They’ve also announced that Neverwinter will drop 32-bit Windows support at the same time.

And as usual, they haven’t announced a bloody thing in the Champions forums.

They’re also announcing mega-extended maintenance across all Cryptic titles on May 29th, so make sure to factor that in to your plans, fans!

The expansion that featured TOS content as a ‘throwback’ was some of the most fun I’ve had playing MMOs. It made me realize that was what I really wanted – a Star Trek MMO in that timeline. The film grain effect was amazing.

The Agents of Yesterday expansion brought me back to the game after five years.

It could had been even better if it featured most episodes, had arcs for Romulands and Klingons of TOS era and didnt have TOS era bridges with npcs burried to the floor or sitting on the floor due to misplacement.

But yes lots good things were added by it – liked it overal too

I personally like what they’ve done with Discovery content… I guess we all have our favorites.

They have a lot of good story content really. For people who play a lot they’ll get through it too fast probably. For casual users who want 30 minutes to an hour of story content entertainment to play once and a while it will last a really long time.

I doubt there will be much grumbling over this decision.

Mostly just confusion with some people over if their OS is 32 or 64 bit. 98% end up finding out it’s 64 bit, though there are those 2%! I imagine the game for them isn’t playing that swimmingly anyway considering the RAM limitations of 32 bit but who knows.
