Game of Thrones Ascent developer Disruptor Beam has announced its new partnership with CBS Consumer Products, which will see the developer producing a new Star Trek strategy roleplaying game for mobile and web platforms. The game, Star Trek Timelines, will bring players into the Star Trek multiverse as they interact with characters from all eras of the franchise.
Star Trek Timelines will offer a story-driven experience, as players explore the galaxy and build their dream crew to go on missions with Captain Kirk, Spock, Captain Picard, Data and many others. The game will offer a focus on more than just combat, as users will need to research scientific technologies and also engage in diplomatic relations with other cultures and races. The game will feature original artwork and 3D graphics.
“We want to create a new generation of strategy game for tablet and mobile devices and one that is as large and deep as the Star Trek universe itself,” said Jon Radoff, CEO of Disruptor Beam. “I grew up watching the franchise and have always felt that the best episodes were those that went beyond the coolness of the technology or vastness of space; the ones which told the story of characters making important decisions that had an impact on others, on civilizations, planets, and technology.
“Star Trek Timelines will encompass all of these concepts, allowing you to explore the vastness of space along with your friends—letting you live out the ‘where no man has gone before’ mantra we all love—but will also allow you to make decisions that impact your future, your friends and even the fate of the Galaxy.”
Star Trek Timelines will release on the web, iOS and Android, but a specific release date hasn’t been revealed. For now, fans are encouraged to follow the game’s Facebook fan page to be the first to know more.
