The development team at Cryptic Studios and publisher Perfect World announce the launch of the Season 7 update for the MMO, which will introduce the Romulans to the game.
Daniel Stahl, the executive producer working on the game, states, “This is the first time Star Trek fans will have a chance to participate in the story of rebuilding the Romulan Empire. Star Trek Online players will experience first-hand the plight of the Romulus survivors as they uncover mysteries surrounding their new home world.”
Players in Star Trek Online will have to use their skills, both on planets and when using their starship, in order to gain the allegiance of the Romulan Empire.
Star Trek Online is free to play and the developers are making money from the sale of items via microtransactions to the player base.
