Star Trek Online Season 13 – Escalation Launches on April 25
New Update Tasks Captains with Saving New Kentar from the Tzenkethi
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – March 29, 2017 – Today, Perfect World Entertainment Inc., a leading publisher of free-to-play MMORPGs, and Cryptic Studios announced Star Trek Online Season 13 – Escalation. The journey continues for the 100% free-to-play MMORPG based on the classic Star Trek franchise. The new season will begin when the game launches its next update on PC April 25 and on consoles at a later date. Star Trek Online Season 13 – Escalation sends players on a mission with the Lukari to help them rediscover their ancient origins. However, they also deal with an imminent threat by the Tzenkethi. The newest update to Star Trek Online Season 13 continues the epic Tzenkethi War story arc. It marks the debut of the brand new War Games system, which pits teams of players against each other in competitive PvE scenarios.
About Star Trek Online Season 13 – Escalation
Star Trek Online Season 13 – Escalation takes the player on a journey to discover where the previously isolationist Lukari came from. Once they begin to understand their previous place in the galaxy, a Tzenkethi fleet arrives. This presents an immediate threat. In addition to these exciting events, players can also participate in the War Games system. This new type of queue allows two five-person teams to battle head-to-head in competitive PvE scenarios.
And to keep players on an even playing field, a new Player Potential system has been introduced. It will match players of similar skill in the same matches. Furthermore, the War Game system will also have a new reputation tied to it. This includes for the first time ever, class specific-ship and captain gear. Captains can mix and match new gear they earn from any class and also have the option to specialize. To support the new War Games system, a full rebalance pass has been made to ground and space combat. Hence this ensures that no matter what choice captains make when outfitting their skills or ship, it isn’t a wrong one.
