According to the game’s website, the primary thrust will be narrative-based, featuring “dialogue options, relationship building, and exploration.” Different choices made in the game will affect the paths your characters take, as in the Telltale games “The Wolf Of Us” or “The Walking Dead”. The developers are also promising additional game modes, including a shuttle experience, shooting, easy-to-use tricorder, and more. The gameplay will be mostly third-person, while role-playing elements will be presented in a more cinematic format with playable options.
The game follows two main characters, First Officer Jara Rayddick and engineering crew Carter Diaz, who are stationed aboard the USS Resolut. You’ll be able to switch between the two characters as they “reveal a sinister mystery concerning two alien civilizations on the brink of war.” “Star Trek: Resurgence” takes place in the year 2380, around the same time as the first season of “Star Trek: The Lower Decks.” This means that the Dominion War is over and the events of “Star Trek: Nemesis” have already taken place, but “Star Trek: Picard” is still almost two decades away, since that series began in the year 2399.
The game’s website promises that while the heroes and ship in “Resurgence” are brand new, there will be some familiar faces. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) appears in the trailer and given the sheer number of characters still alive during this time period of the franchise, the possibilities are endless.
