Another major update has been brought into the free-to-play MMORPG Star Trek Online and we believe there’s no better way to celebrate the arrival of the Age of Discovery content than by giving away free stuff. So, we’ve teamed up with Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios to do just that. Now, who wants a code for a Verdant Tardigrade pet and a nifty new title on Xbox One?
Star Trek Online is a hugely popular MMORPG on Xbox One – as well as PlayStation 4 and PC – that doesn’t cost a penny to get involved with, and the Age of Discovery is now available for all to enjoy. The update marks the beginning of a multi-part adventure based on the Star Trek: Discovery TV series and the first instalment makes it possible to create a Federation Captain as you embark upon a new voyage of discovery. With two fresh episodes to play through, extra Reputation Tiers, a new Task Force Operation and more, this latest chapter of the Star Trek Online is on you shouldn’t miss out on.
Season One of Star Trek: Discovery introduced the world to Tardigrades, which are multi-dimensional creatures whose genetic makeup granted access to the mycelial network. In Star Trek Online, Captains can order these highly evolved beasts to accompany them on ground missions featured in Age of Discovery and beyond. The appropriately coloured Verdant Tardigrade is a non-combat pet, exclusive to Star Trek Online players on the Xbox One platform. Once claimed, it can be granted to all characters on a single account and isn’t restricted by faction. Each code also grants players the new title of “Spore Engineer.”
