SAN FRANCISCO, CA — October 27, 2023 — On Vulcan we have a saying: Kol-Ut-Shan, or ‘Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations’. By extension, if the purpose of a piece of entertainment is to be experienced by as many life forms as possible, logic dictates that entertainment be delivered across as many diverse platforms as possible.
Accordingly, Dramatic Labs, an independent game development studio composed of Telltale Games veterans, has seen fit to announce the availability of Star Trek: Resurgence in physical format. Game discs may now be acquired through traditional retail channels and are compatible with the PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X, and Xbox One platforms.
In conjunction with this historic event, it is relevant to emphasize an exclusive incentive: for a finite period of time, those who purchase these discs will be granted access to two distinct codes, distributed in collaboration with retail outlets. The first code unlocks the ‘Federation Elite Starter Pack’, a useful collection catering to the requirements of Federation Captains embarking on their voyages within Cryptic Studios’ Star Trek Online. The second code delivers the inaugural issue of the Star Trek: Resurgence comic book series in a digital format, a prelude to the narrative of the interactive game.
Kevin Bruner, founder, and Chief Executive Officer of Dramatic Labs, expresses a curious yet understandable human sentiment, “I find myself emotionally compromised. While the physical release of our game is logical, I must permit myself to feel gratitude to all those who have contributed to this moment, and to all the Star Trek fans who have already joined us aboard the U.S.S. Resolute. We look forward to more fans of Star Trek joining us on our voyage.”
For those who are susceptible to the swings of human emotion, the narrative of this interactive adventure will pull the player in many directions. Some may be so impacted, they will seek the wisdom of Surak, and ultimately purge all emotion through the kolinahr. Regardless, despite our differences, may we together become greater than the sum of both of us.
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 is available on disc now for PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, and Xbox Series X/Xbox One consoles at retail stores, and is available to download on the same platforms, plus Xbox Series S and PC (Epic Games Store).
The U.S.S Resolute is available for Star Trek Online players to claim and keep for free until November 30. This venerable Centaur-class refit, conceived during the Dominion War, has been designated as a scientific exploration vessel, traversing the periphery of Federation space. A highly significant ship, it figures prominently in shaping consequential decisions within Star Trek: Resurgence and as a means of embarking on exhilarating quests within Star Trek Online. The retail pre-order/day-one pack continues to be available from participating retailers for a limited time. Dramatic Labs comprises a team of industry veterans, including Kevin Bruner, the co-founder and former CEO of Telltale Games, along with Andrew Grant, Dan Martin, Kent Mudle, and Brett Tosti. These seasoned professionals have played pivotal roles in the creation of some of the most beloved interactive story games ever conceived. With their profound expertise in interactive storytelling, Dramatic Labs is primed to transport players to strange new worlds and empower them to make decisions that truly matter.
