Star Trek Online: Rise of Discovery Hits Console Today
Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios revealed today that the latest Star Trek Online update hits console! Rise of Discovery is now available on both Playstation 4 and Xbox One and continues the story of the CBS television series, Star Trek: Discovery. Players join the ranks of the U.S.S. Buran and explore the Discovery universe from within, with this new update. The Buran, commanded by Captain Gabriel Lorca (voiced by Jason Isaacs) and Commander Ellen Landry (voiced by Rekha Sharma) will lead Captains through a pair of moving stories, to uncover what happened to these characters before they arrived on the U.S.S. Discovery in the first season of the show. A new reputation also awaits, and perhaps the biggest change, Tier 6 ships now scale to players level and can be used immediately. In addition, on July 2nd, free rewards await for Playstation Plus and Xbox Gold members. The reward packs on each console include a color-variant Tardigrade Combat Pet, a color-variant Assault Drone Vanity Pet, and three Master Keys.
These events take place across brand new missions featured in Rise of Discovery. A full list of new content includes:
Two New Featured Episodes – All of the game’s captains can participate in two brand new playable episodes which take place in the Star Trek: Discovery universe.
“The Plausibility of the Possible” – Players will rescue the U.S.S. Buran, led by Captain Gabriel Lorca and Commander Ellen Landry after the Starfleet ship is attacked by Klingons.
“Impossibility of Reason” – Star Trek Online captains will team up with Landry on an urgent mission to rescue Lorca from a desolate ice moon before he is apprehended by a Klingon search party.
Star Trek: Discovery Characters – Rise of Discovery features original voice acting from Star Trek: Discovery’s very own Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter film series, The Patriot) as Captain Lorca and Rekha Sharma (Battlestar Galactica, Alien vs Predators: Requiem) as Commander Landry.
New Reputation – Console captains can explore a new Tier 6 Reputation, “Discovery Legends,” which allows players to earn exciting new Discovery themed rewards. All of the Discovery Task Force Operations will now feature Advanced and Elite versions that have been converted to support this new reputation and pay out Discovery Legend Marks.
In addition, the Star Trek Online team is heading to Star Trek Las Vegas and Star Trek Night with the San Francisco Giants. A brief synopsis of those events is below.
