Paramount, Digital Extremes announce Star Trek

A cooperative Star Trek adventure — where players take on the roles of Kirk and Spock — will make its debut at E3 next week. The title’s scheduled for a summer 2012 retail release for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

In development by Digital Extremes (Dark Sector, The Darkness II), the game will act as a sequel to the 2009 J.J. Abrams film. The game’s script is being written by Marianne Krawczyk, a BAFTA award winner best known for her work on God of War and last year’s Shank.

We don’t know much about Star Trek‘s gameplay yet, but we’ll find out more next week at E3 when the game makes it debut.
