Hey what's up everyone this is Jay coming back to you with another fun filled game that will have your thumbs numb and your controller begging to be put down for a rest.
As many of you may or may not know Xbox one and PlayStation 4 has released Star Trek online back in September. When it first came out it was only for the PC but with the success of it and the outcry from gamers like us they finally ported it over to the Xbox and PlayStation, but there's a catch...oh wait there is none it's a free download. Yes a popular game that's still being played by countless people and they release it for free. Now for those that have played it on the computer but your friends couldn't play cause they only play Xbox or PlayStation you can import your character from the PC to which ever device you wish to play with your friends or make new friends.
The Federation and Klingons have once again started fighting with each other. The Romulans don't really have a home anymore. Their home world was destroyed by a super nova as explained in the 2009 Star Trek reboot film. Because of that the Romulans can side with either side the player wants. Then it takes you into a whole different set of missions.
You can make five characters...i currently have two a human and a Romulan playing on the Federation side. I have not started a Klingon character yet but that will change soon. Now with that being said you don't have to necessarily make your characters the standard human, Romulan or Klingon races. You can completely customize him or her. From eye color, ears, head, everything. You can also make your own uniforms, and yes you guessed it customize your own ship as well. Options for that a slightly limited but it's still a very cool option.
Ok so we've covered the basics let's get to the fun part. As you do missions you rank up like any other game. Once you get to level 10 you can join a fleet. Either you can make your own or join a friends or simply join one that you've been invited to cause your awesome.
Once in the fleet you can help with fleet missions as a whole. You can build up your very own star base, build new resources, and basically build your fleet up in every way possible.
Oh by the way did i mention that in this game on most missions you can have up to five other friends or strangers join your team. That's a nice feature for people that like co op play.
There's two main areas of fighting. Ground battles just like any other game, and of course space battles where you captain your own star ship into battle, but don't worry even if you get destroyed you have something the TV shows and films don't...RESPAWN.
I don't want to give much more cause then i run the risk of giving out spoilers and i want you to experience it for yourself. If you have any questions about it please send out an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or if you want look me up on Xbox One: Mr Chaos97
Take care and keep gaming.
