The Star Trek: Resurgence release date has arrived! The new game is launching today, with fans of the long-running sci-fi series sure to be watching the incoming reviews with great interest as they contemplate whether it's worth paying the price themselves.
If you're wondering what the game actually is, Star Trek: Resurgence is described as "an epic narrative adventure featuring dialogue-driven role playing and rich branching storylines, [where] you will also engage with the Star Trek universe in a variety of ways, including shuttle piloting, phaser fights, tricorder scanning, stealth, and more."
If you're looking for a pre-order deal on the game, CD Keys will currently sell you a digital code for £29.09. That's a saving of 13 per cent, when you compare it to the official Star Trek: Resurgence price.
In terms of when the game takes place on the timeline, Star Trek: Resurgence is set one year after the Star Trek: Nemesis film. A single-player game split into 40 short episodes, it has two playable characters (First Officer Jara Rydek and Petty Officer Carter Diaz, both crew of the USS Resolute).

Star Trek: Resurgence review round-up
The Star Trek: Resurgence reviews are now starting to appear. We haven't had a chance to play the game ourselves, so we've pulled together some of the key opinions for you below.
Will Borger for IGN gave Star Trek: Resurgence a 7/10 score, classifying it as "good". Borger said in closing, "The story of Star Trek: Resurgence does an excellent job of capturing what makes Star Trek work by presenting strong characters and tough decisions. Some storylines lack closure and it doesn’t always run smoothly, but its heart is in the right place."
Jason Faulkner at ComingSoon.net gave a 6/10 score, which counts as "decent". Faulkner said, "As a fan of the franchise, I appreciate the attention to detail and the effort required to bottle the nostalgia of 90s Trek. However, despite being an enjoyable experience on its own, I have to wonder how much of my perception of the game was colored by my love for TNG, DS9, and Voyager."
James Whitbrook of Gizmodo said, "Resurgence will very much give you a solid Trek tale populated with compelling characters and interesting leads that perhaps comes closest to making you feel like you’re taking part in a classic Star Trek narrative—certainly more than many other games have attempted in decades. But that success is often in spite of itself, a not-quite diamond in the very-much rough of its clumsy, awkward mechanics."
For TrekMovie, Anthony Pascale wrote: "Resurgence isn’t at the level of a AAA game like the recently released Star Wars: Jedi Survivor or Bethesda’s highly anticipated sci-fi game Starfield, but it is the most ambitious and impressive Star Trek game since 2019’s Star Trek: Bridge Crew. The strength of the game and why it is highly recommended to any fan is for the fascinating story that it allows you to participate in, populated with interesting well-played characters, all inhabiting a familiar Star Trek universe that also expands the lore."
