Star Trek Online - Release date confirmed

12th, November 2009
Ok, so this news is 'old-hat' now, but I wanted to put out there not only the happiness this means, but also the anticipation. Let me explain, for a MMO to be developed from start to end takes YEARS, and because the gaming company who is making this game (Cryptic) specialise in making online games they have already got an online engine to put to it. STO has only been in development for barely 2 years which means it’s still in early stages of Dev.

Now the BETA has only just been released but this seems to be more of a way to get people interested and excited about the actual release which is in just over 2 months.

So, the game is getting released quite early for a game but with the advantages of making a MMO is that it’s online which means you can constantly release updates (which with games like Star Wars Online was weekly). With this in mind, more content will be added easily once it’s released and will [hopefully] ensure an income to continue development which results in us having a better game in the end.

One of the things that’s bumming me out is the original press release video make last august, which stated loads of things that will be in the game like working on peoples Ships, economy, exploration etc... But this release is barely going to scratch the surface of this. From recent rumours YOU CANT EVEN WALK AROUND YOUR OWN SHIP - I mean that’s just crazy.

Now I want to play this game, and I resent waiting another year for it but I’m scared when it does come out its going to be 'Half Cooked' and many people are going to be put off this.

In the end this doesn’t really matter as I can’t do anything until I get my STUPID INTERNET - honestly avoid Virgin Media at all costs!
