Elite Force Add-on Announced
10:32 AM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

Raven Software has announced that they will release an add-on pack for their Star Trek-based shooter Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force for the PC version this spring. With two new solo adventures, new multiplayer game types, and a "tour" mode that will allow you to explore 15 decks of the Voyager, this is an add-on for serious Trek fans. There is currently no word on a Mac version of this add-on, but we have contacted Aspyr Media to determine if this is indeed a possibility. While we are awaiting their reply, here are some details:

Santa Monica, CA - February 28, 2001 -Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) and Raven Software are offering players another tour of duty with the crew of the U.S.S. Voyager by announcing the official add-on pack for the highly acclaimed PC game, Star Trek: Voyager® Elite Force™. In the add-on pack, players will reprise their role as commander of the Hazard Team, a specially trained security detail designed to combat the perils of the Delta Quadrant.

"The original game set new standards for action games and is considered by many as the best translation to date of the Star Trek® license into a game," said, Larry Goldberg, executive vice president, Activision Worldwide Studios. "In the add-on pack Raven Software is bringing an array of compelling single and multiplayer experiences to the winning Star Trek: Voyager Elite Force mix that fans are sure to love."

The official Star Trek: Voyager Elite Force add-on pack will offer players a variety of diverse gameplay experiences. For the first time ever, trekkers will be able to explore an interactive 3D recreation of Voyager's interior in Tour Mode. Once aboard, players will have unrestricted access to 15 decks of the ship, including the bridge, officer quarters, holodecks, the transporter room, Hazard Team crew quarters, sickbay, astrometrics, the shuttlebay and engineering. Additionally, many of the ship's systems and all of the crew will be interactive. Players can perform complex tasks like initiating Voyager's self-destruct sequence or shutting down the warp core, along with finding secret items hidden objectives, and mini-games. Once players finish touring the ship, they can hone their Hazard Team skills in two new single player campaigns - a Captain Proton holo-novel and an assault on a Klingon compound.

Multiplayer also benefits from the new add-on pack with 17 additional multiplayer maps and 12 new models. The Star Trek: Voyager Elite Force add-on will also feature two new game mods. In a new class-based team game, players will be able to select a character class (i.e. security, medical, engineering…) with unique skill bonuses to complement their style of play. Additionally, in the assimilate mode, a group of players have to neutralize a lone Borg invader before they become assimilated.

Westlake Interactive originally ported Elite Force to Mac; Aspyr Media was the publisher. Make sure to come back later for an update. An Elite Force demo can be found over at MacGameFiles, and we have also published a review of this title.
