Spock takes the spotlight in the first Star Trek: Resurgence gameplay trailer

Star Trek: Resurgence, premiered at the Game Awards 2021.

Is a “narrative adventure game with dialogue choice, relationship building, and exploration” set in the year 2380. In the era immediately after the Star Trek: The Next Generation films. Now kindly IGNWe’s got our debut gameplay trailer, and it’s got just about everything you’d expect from a classic five-year mission. The intractable conflict between alien races, brutal morale, a significant directive, ion storms, and, of course, Spock.

Resurgence is being developed by Dramatic Labs

The studio stood established by former Tellgame Games CEO Kevin Bruner and other Telltale veterans. This trailer looks a lot like a Telltale game: in over seven minutes of gameplay. There aren’t any less than six ABC variants in the video that either otherwise direct the conversation. Presumably leading to somewhat different outcomes at different stages of the journey. Resurgence will have two playable characters whose gameplay will switch between them as the game progresses. Still, it will differ from the Telltale games in one particular way: it will not be episodic but will be released as a single significant story.


It will be exciting to see how it works. Telltale closed very abruptly in 2018 after what seemed to be several years of steady success but profound¬†edge. Shortly before its closure, a report to the studio indicated that crunch and mismanagement were standard. Several sources stated that much of the studio’s problems stemmed from Bruner himself. Bruner, who co-founded the studio and took over as CEO in early 2015, stepped down from the board in March 2017. And effectively sued the company in June 2018 for effectively freezing him. And voting to remove him from the board.

How Bruner will manage the new studio is a big question mark.

But such is the nature of Star Trek Resurgence itself. Telltale Games have been big business thanks to a string of lucrative licenses over the years. Including Batman, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and Guardians of the Galaxy, but that formula has come a long way. One source, commenting on Bruner’s departure for a 2018 Verge report. Said the studio “needs to break out of the Telltale formula. Do something different, surprise and delight people.” Based on this video, Star Trek: Resurgence might appeal to people. At least Star Trek fans – but the chances of something different and surprising don’t look good.

Meanwhile, Telltale itself came back to life in 2019 under new ownership and management and is now making its own game based on the sci-fi TV show The Expanse.

Star Trek: Resurgence is expected to release later this year and be available on PC via the Epic Games Store. More information about the game can be found at StarTrek-resurgence.com
