The new Star Trek made by Digital Extremes (The Darkness 2) now has a firm release date: 26th April 2013.

This was announced yesterday but I missed it because of mince pies.

If you really can't wait and want to place a pre-order then you'll be rewarded with an Elite Office Pack. Stuffed in are extra costumes for Kirk and Spock as well as a couple of weapons: a Starfleet Type 4 Stealth Sniper Rifle and an Academy Phaser.

The Star Trek video game has promise. We've seen it a couple of times - most recently at E3 - and the signs are good. The game won't ape the new Into Darkness film either; it's designed to fill a story-hole between Star Trek (2009) and its sequel.

I found a video of it!
