New Trek games license

Gameforge, a German company, have recently announced they have taken out a new video games license from CBS to produce browser based Star Trek games around the classic Trek series and films (ie everything but the new film). They plan to start with two games in 2011, one in the TOS era and one TNG/DS9 era. According to a TrekMovie article, the two games will have different styles; with one taking on a more RPG-like take on exploration and combat, while the other will be a more light-hearted and social experience.

Gameforge's business model means the games will be entirely free to play, with optional extras available to purchase to allow customisation.Press release at TrekWeb and TrekToday, and interview on TrekMovie.
