Paramount Pictures and Namco Bandai have revealed a brand new villain that will appear in the upcoming Star Trek game – based on J.J. Abrams’ 2009 reboot.
The Gorn are a lizard-like race deeply embedded in Star Trek lore. The co-op storyline features Captain James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock, as they work together to prevent the Gorn from taking over the galaxy.
“The Gorn are among the most iconic villains in the Star Trek universe and their role in this game certainly lives up to that persona,” said Brian Miller, Senior Vice President at Paramount Pictures and Lead Game Producer. “Kirk and Spock find themselves in an incredibly challenging amount of mayhem as they confront the Gorn throughout the game.”
This fearsome foe ranges in both size and abilities. Their main offense is to poison foes with a venom that can cause hallucinations and even kill.
“Great villains give our favorite characters a chance to become heroes in the process of attempting to eliminate a powerful threat, and Star Trek fans have been eagerly anticipating the moment when the antagonists of the game would be revealed,” said Carlson Choi, VP of Marketing at NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. “This is one of those moments and we couldn’t be more excited to give gamers a glimpse at the challenges that lie ahead for Kirk and Spock.”
