The UK based online publication and community Alltern8 announced that starting December 18th, gamers will have the opportunity to win one of fifty exclusive Closed Beta Keys for Star Trek Online. This promotion will go on for only two weeks, from December 18th to January 4th, 2010.
Star Trek Online is a massively multiplayer online game developed by Cryptic studios, of Champions Online fame. Players will have the opportunity to captain a Federation star ship of their own, or expand the Empire via heavy PvP as a Klingon warlord. Of course, visiting the ever popular worlds and locales of the Star Trek universe, and exploring the strange galaxies, unknown worlds and alien civilizations has enormous appeal of it’s own.
Star Trek Online features “Episode Missions”, which gives players the sensation of experiencing a brand-new episode of the acclaimed series while taking players across all corners of deep space. Also, because Star Trek Online is set in the distant year of 2409 everything in the game is new, but still based on the beloved Star Trek mythos. Star Trek Online offers quite a bit of customization, from you’re avatars appearance and race to the design of your ship and bridge crew.
Star Trek Online is slated for release on February 2th, 2010 in North America, and February 5th in Europe and Australia.
