Bringing together the original cast members from Voyager, Deep Space Nine and Discovery, Stormfall is Star Trek Online’s next chapter – and today it becomes available on both Xbox and PlayStation, as console folk join their PC cousins for some Andorian action.
In the the latest update for the free-to-play Star Trek Online, players learn that Captain Killy (Mary Wiseman) and her Terran forces plan to summon a dangerous adversary from their past. It’ll be up to the Captains to team up with Marshal Janeway (Kate Mulgrew), Admiral Leeta (Chase Masterson) and an Andorian rebel named “Rae-Yeet” (Noah Averbach-Katz) to stop the Terran Empire from taking over.
If that wasn’t exciting enough, Stormfall also introduces a host of exciting gameplay content to consoles for the first time, including:
- Two Featured Episodes – Captains hailing from all of the game’s various factions can explore two brand new episodes, “Blueshift” and “The Calling.” Captains will team up with Admiral Leeta and Terran Marshal Janeway to rescue Ilia and stop Terran forces from summoning a powerful new nemesis.
- Remastered Starfleet Tutorial – The tutorial for the main Starfleet faction has received a major upgrade. This new introduction will not only provide aspiring Captains with a smoother starting experience, but also adds new upgraded environments and even more interaction with the Borg and Admiral Janeway.
- TFO Rebuild – “Forged in Fire” is a complete rebuild of a fan favorite, “The Assault on Terok Nor.” In this five-player ground Task Force Operation, players will assemble an assault team to stop Admiral Leeta, who now has the power of the Pah-wraith, non-corporeal beings once native to the Bajoran wormhole.
- “Heart of the Storm” Special Event – Captains who play through numerous episodes and TFOs associated with Mirror Universe can unlock an exciting new reward, the Kuumarke Visionary Ground Set.
Further to all that, the upcoming Lohlunat Festival is also on the horizon. It’s here where Summer has officially returned to Risa, which means it’s time for Star Trek Online’s annual Lohlunat Festival. Running June 30th through to July 30th, Captains can travel to the tropical planet of Risa to participate in a series of summer games and earn this year’s coveted prize, the all-new Cnidarian Defender [T6].
This special ship has been based on the first alien beings encountered on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and can be flown in both saucer and jellyfish modes. Festivities for this year’s event, all of which progress players towards the new ship, include Powerboard Races, the Biathlon, Horga’hn Hunting, Scavenging with Sovak and the coolest Dance Party this side of the galaxy. Players can also earn credits towards hot new items available in the Summer Event Store, including baseball uniforms, floaters and powerboards based on the Andorian Blue Bores baseball team, and new Andorian themed modules, kit frames, Tribbles and Caracals to make sure it’s a cool summer.
You’ll find the 2022 Lohlunat Festival will be available on all of the game’s platforms (PC via Steam, Arc Games and Epic Games, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4 and PS5) ensuring that all Captains can join in on the fun.
Get involved in the usual manner, mostly by downloading Star Trek Online on the format of your choice and taking it from there. For Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S players, the Xbox Store will suit.
