Scopely and CBS Interactive Combine Forces to Create Star Trek Fleet Command
Scopely, an interactive entertainment company and mobile games publisher, together with CBS Interactive, today announced the launch of Star Trek Fleet Command, a multiplayer real-time strategy and role-play mobile game that brings an entire galaxy of characters and ships to life for the ultimate Star Trek gaming experience.
Based on the 2009, 2013 and 2016 cinematic Star Trek universe, Star Trek Fleet Command is the first free-roaming multiplayer Star Trek experience to combine role-playing game style progression and real-time battles with enemy ships on mobile devices. Players have the opportunity to build dream teams made up of their favorite characters including Captain Kirk, Spock and Uhura as well as from different factions such as the Federation, Klingons and Romulans as they determine their place in the cosmos. Star Trek Fleet Command also boasts augmented reality (AR) features, bringing a football field-sized USS Enterprise into the real world for the first time. Players can use their mobile camera to hover their ship over their home or local park, allowing them to capture screenshots to share with friends.
Steve Huff, General Manager of Product at Scopely added, “Star Trek has cultivated one of the most devoted and passionate fan bases in entertainment and we sought to stay true to the franchise when creating Star Trek Fleet Command -offering players one of the most aesthetically, narratively and mechanically immersive Star Trek experiences to date. Our teams have been working with tremendous passion to deliver the ultimate gaming experience for fans around the globe.”
Star Trek Fleet Command offers players the ability to customize their gameplay experience through various narrative paths across hundreds of available missions. How players interact with other deep-space denizens and utilize the different factions’ unique officers, ships and technologies will further tailor each user experience, making the amount of personalization offered in Star Trek: Fleet Command about as limitless as the universe.
To celebrate the launch of the game, YouTube star Typical Gamer hosted a roundtable discussion about all things Star Trek with franchise star John Cho and superfans actress Megan Fox, musician Steve Aoki and athlete Hunter Pence. The first Star Trek talk premieres today on Typical Gamer’s YouTube channel with an additional episode forthcoming December 1. Published by Scopely, Star Trek Fleet Command was created and developed in partnership with DIGIT Game Studios.
Star Trek Fleet Command 1.7.2 is Free (With In-App Purchases) and available worldwide through the App Store in the Games category. There is also an Android version available on Google Play.
