Dramatic Labs and Paramount Consumer Products Launch
Star Trek: Resurgence
New Third-Person Narrative Adventure Game set within the Star Trek Universe
SAN RAFAEL, CA — May 23, 2023 — Dramatic Labs, an independent game developer composed of Telltale Games veterans, in collaboration with Paramount Consumer Products, today revealed Star Trek: Resurgence, a new third-person choice-driven adventure game set within the iconic sci-fi universe. Star Trek: Resurgence is out now for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4 gaming consoles, (and will be playable on PlayStation 5 via backwards comparability) and exclusively on the Epic Games Store for PCs.
Star Trek: Resurgence is a bold interactive narrative game set shortly after Star Trek: The Next Generation’s timeline. A worker uprising threatens the tenuous peace between two alien civilizations, and Starfleet is forced to intervene. Players experience the conflict and larger mystery from two key perspectives. The U.S.S. Resolute’s First Officer Jara Rydek is part of the diplomatic envoy led by Ambassador Spock that’s tasked with finding a resolution – and uncovering the ultimate source of this tense situation. Engineering Crewperson Carter Diaz highlights how the mission plays out from the lower decks, caught up in the events in his own unique way.
