This single-player action game with cooperative gameplay elements allows two people to control Kirk and Spock, however, players can’t switch between Kirk and Spock during a chapter. It will allow for fellow players to “drop-in” to play alongside co-operatively.
The two characters are intended to show different gameplay techniques, with Kirk being the more typical shooter while Spock has stealth techniques and can use both the Vulcan nerve pinch and mind meld. Each are armed with weapons to reflect their gameplay style, with Kirk armed with a phaser equipped with a stun setting, while Spock’s weapon is quieter and freezes enemies instead. The Gorn are set to be the enemies of the game, attacking the New Vulcan colony. Word is you can take Gornography at UCLA.
