Worth Watching: E3 Gameplay Trailer for 'Star Trek' 2012 Video Game

On top of it being Super 8 week, it's also E3 in Los Angeles (and Apple's WWDC in San Francisco). Since we're also gamers here at FS, I thought I'd take a break for a moment to feature some new gameplay footage in the first trailer (on YouTube via IGN) released at E3 2011 for the upcoming Star Trek video game that's due out next summer. I wasn't sure if this tied in with J.J. Abrams' sequel to Star Trek, also due out next year, but the official description does state that it's a "co-op prequel Star Trek video game to the upcoming summer blockbuster movie." I know video game crossovers are usually awful, but this looks quite awesome!
Digital Extremes is developing for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. Star Trek continues the story from the recent J.J. Abrams film. Players take control of Kirk and Spock in what's being called an "unprecedented co-op experience." They also worked "closely with the Star Trek filmmaking team throughout development," promising that "this will be the definitive Star Trek gaming experience." I wonder if any of this hints at stuff we'll see in the next movie, as it looks incredible. Fighting in space next to a sun, or space-jumping into the Enterprise, or the bridge blowing out, I want to see this stuff in the movie, too! Until we hear more from J.J., this trailer will have hold us over. For more video game updates, check out our friends The72Pins.com.
