Star Trek: DAC Details Released + 4 Screenshots!
« on: 25 March 2009 06:30 PM »
[img align=right]http://hailingfrequency.co.uk/images/news/gaming-news.png[/img] After a period of speculation, details of the next Star Trek Game - "Star Trek D.A.C" have started to come to light.

Naked Sky, the developers of the game, updated their website yesterday with some details on the game (which have since been removed) however a trigger happy community member was able to screencap the site and then send the information on to us:

Star Trek: D·A·C is a fast-paced, top-down action shooter inspired by the new J.J. Abrams’ motion picture. This pick-up and play game allows you and your friends to choose starships and battle it out via online versus or co-op modes.

    • 12-player online play – feat. 3 game modes and stat tracking
    • 3 classes of vessels per faction: Flagship, Bomber and Fighter feat. the new USS Enterprise from the film
    • Variety of power-ups special pickups
    • Music from the motion picture
    • Powered by Naked Sky’s NimbusEngine

Choose your side, fire your weapons, boldly go!


In addition, Joystiq were able to get some information on the game:

J.J. Abrams has been involved with the game during development, and has given notes aplenty, including the directive to “include more SFX from the movie!” Red alert sound? We hope so.

It’s a top-down 3D space shooter that doesn’t require a lot of hardcore gameplay experience to jump into, but it features a large amount of strategic gameplay that’ll please hardcore gamers.

The game is arcade style, and not narrative-based. There are no voices from the movie in the game. According to Hoyt, “I think it’s a mistake that most movie games try to emulate the plot of the movie.”

The game will be available “near” the launch of the movie on May 8 for XBLA, and the PSN version will follow soon after. Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, but it should be in line with other DLC titles. There will be a free demo available on both platforms.


Finally - IGN have released 4 screenshots from the game which have been added into our brand new Star Trek DAC gallery section.  Here they are:

 So I am going to have to break down and upgrade to a PS3? Or an X-Box 360 even? Dang!

I guess so!  Looks like a pretty neat game though!
