SAN RAFAEL, CA -- October 10, 2023 -- Dramatic Labs, an independent game developer formed by Telltale Games veterans, is thrilled to announce an exclusive pre-order/day-one bonus pack for the physical versions of Star Trek: Resurgence.
Released as a digital download earlier this year, Star Trek: Resurgence will beam down to retail stores on October 27, and for a limited time, pre-order and Day-One customers will receive two free codes from participating retailers. Code one unlocks Star Trek Online’s ‘Federation Elite Starter Pack’ for consoles, a pack that will prepare a new Federation Captain to begin their adventures in Star Trek Online, while code two allows a download of the first issue of the Star Trek: Resurgence comic book series, a prequel to the story told in the game.
Furthermore, players of Star Trek Online will soon leave Space Dock in the captain’s chair of the U.S.S. Resolute, the hero ship of Star Trek: Resurgence! Star Trek Online captains can get this beloved starship for free in Star Trek Online from October 12 to November 30. The Resolute, a Centaur-class refit born during the Dominion War, serves as a science vessel on the frontier of Federation space. As any seasoned Star Trek fan knows, the ship is at the core of every extraordinary adventure, whether making meaningful decisions in Star Trek: Resurgence or embarking on exciting quests in Star Trek Online.
Kevin Bruner, the founder and CEO of Dramatic Labs, expressed his excitement, saying, "There's nothing quite like donning your away-team uniform and embarking on an adventure with friends. That's why we're absolutely thrilled to partner with Cryptic Studios and IDW Publishing to offer this incredible digital pack with our retail release. IDW’s comic series weaves an incredible story that seamlessly leads into our game, and seeing the Resolute in action in Star Trek Online is simply mind-blowing!"
Justin Laird, Producer of Cryptic Studios’ long running and acclaimed Star Trek MMORPG, Star Trek Online, shared how special this partnership is for Cryptic Studios, saying, “The entire Star Trek Online team is thrilled to partner with Dramatic Labs and have the incredible opportunity to bring the Star Trek: Resurgence hero ship, the U.S.S. Resolute, into Star Trek Online. We can’t wait for captains to experience it. Whether players are new to Star Trek Online or have been exploring its vast universe for years, the ‘Federation Elite Starter Pack’ included in the retail release of Star Trek: Resurgence will help jumpstart your adventure in Star Trek Online!”
Star Trek: Resurgence propels players into a gripping narrative-driven adventure set in the aftermath of Star Trek: The Next Generation. This immersive experience reintroduces fan-favorite characters like Captain William T. Riker (voiced by the legendary Jonathan Frakes) and Ambassador Spock (voiced with uncanny accuracy by the remarkably talented Piotr Michael). Celebrated for its commitment to authenticity, Star Trek: Resurgence will be available for PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, and Xbox Series X/Xbox One consoles at retail stores, starting October 27, 2023. And for those eager to dive in even sooner, the game is available to download now on the same platforms, as well as Xbox Series S and PC (Epic Games Store).
The U.S.S Resolute will be available for Star Trek Online players to claim and keep between October 12 to November 30. The retail pre-order/day-one pack will be available from participating retailers for a limited time.
