Star Trek Online + Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising News

  • Mystic Feat Tree has a new developer journal up today to start your week off.

    Some times Mystics and their squads of loyal minions need a little extra help in overcoming a particularly nasty rival, which is when their summoning spells are most effective. When the knocks get a bit too hot, they can use "Lethian Bones" to summon a corpse from its grave and distract their opponent, who will direct all of their hatred at the re-animated sack of bones long enough for the Mystic to plan their next move. For that next move, they might decide to use "Summon Snakes," which summons a serpent to fight at their side. Or perhaps they could use "Summon Shade," which calls a vengeful soul back from Hades to wield the fury of the other side of the grave against their foes.

    As mentioned, Soldiers are capable of withstanding assaults that would devastate any other warrior.

  • Fansite Gets Development Update was given an exclusive development update! Keep reading to learn where things stand withthis upcoming game.

    It’s been a long time (too long) since I’ve given the community an update on how things are going for the Star Trek Online team and with today marking Trek’s 40th (happy birthday Trek!), I thought it would be a great time to do some catching up. I’d like to start off by giving everyone a sense of what to expect going forward. Star Trek Online was announced about a year before development began in earnest. And as a result, we had some catching up to do in order to reassure the fans that we were treating the license with respect and demonstrate our commitment to developing a high quality game. We’ve also really enjoyed the opportunity to share some of our design ideas with the community and get feedback. As you might imagine, our first year of development involved a lot of brainstorming on paper while the foundation for our new client engine and toolset was being built. It was a perfect time for us to bounce ideas out to the community. And the feedback we received had a very valuable effect on our decisions and thought process.
