YA Elite Force Preview
6:00 AM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
Yes, yet another preview of Raven Software's upcoming shooter Star Trek: Elite Force has been posted, as beta copies of this game travel around the PC game sites. This article on PCIGN takes a humorous approach to the title, and remarks on both the depth and authenticity of the Trek experience the game has to offer. There are also details on the plot of the game, character interaction, and how you can travel to the Wild West -- via the Holodeck, of course.
Here's an excerpt on the events that set the plot behind this game in motion:
After the Borg skirmish (which has its own surprise, one I'm not going to spoil for you), you'll find yourself in a classic Voyager dilemma. An enemy ship has (gasp!) suddenly appeared out of nowhere and attacked your ship. Janeway, once again tossing the Federation rulebook out of the airlock, blows the offending ship to high heaven, with one little glitch -- its explosion has warped you to an unknown section of space, in what seems to be a massive space junkyard. Once you head to the equipment room, it's time to head off on your first mission -- find out why the hell you've been sucked into the junkyard, and how you're going to get yourself off. As a member of the Elite Force, it's your job to make sure that Janeway's commands, and Tuvok's orders are followed closely.While an official Mac publisher has yet to be announced for this title, Raven already has a Mac port up and running, as they revealed in a recent interview (see related article.) We are certain this game will come to the Mac OS; when the publisher is willing to go public, we will let you know. In the meantime, check out the preview and cross your fingers for a simultaneous release in September.
