Today Perfect World Entertainment Inc. and Crytpic Studios were excited to announce the next major expansion for their free-to-play MMORPG, titled Star Trek Online: Delta Rising. This new expansion takes all Star Trek captains to the far reaches of the galaxy, known as the Delta Quadrant and will launch this fall.
The expansion is set 30 years after the events of Star Trek: Voyager, and allows you to explore the dangerous Delta Quadrant via a portal recently discovered in a Dyson Sphere. This portal provides a quit route to the region of the galaxy that the U.S.S. Voyager had mapped decades earlier, though what awaits is anybody’s guess.
The expansion keeps with Cryptic Studio’s efforts to capture the true essence of the Star Trek franchise. As a result, the expansion will have Garret Wang reprise his role as Harry Kim, which adds another celebrity actor’s performance to the existing cast in-game.
Finally, the expansion will increase the player level cap to 60, marking the first level cap in four years. Players will be able to acquire completely new tiers of ships, gear, and officers as they level past 50.
