Captains…welcome to the Year of Klingon.
Over the rest of 2020, and part of 2021, we’re going to be putting on a major, multipart, 2411-focused Klingon storyline. We can’t release the details on what that is just yet (although it’s a fair bet that J’Ula and her time traveling cohorts are involved), but as part of this long-planned, face-of-the-game changing story, we’re taking a little time to focus on our most honorable allies. We love our Klingon content – who doesn’t love a story that involves descending into Grethor and fighting a god? – but a lot of it is old, and doesn’t contain the technical improvements we’ve made to the game over the years. So we’re spending time and resources to give these pieces of content visual and gameplay facelifts. Over the next twelve months (maybe more), you’ll see new Klingon character models for some of our classic characters like J’Mpok, updated skins for the classic Klingon ships like the Bird of Prey, new environments and cutscenes to refresh this old but beloved content.
But it’s not going to be all at once. Like how our Age of Discovery expansion came out over the course of most of a year, this refresh will be released in pieces. And we want to show you some of what we’re working on while we’re doing it. Here’s how:
So get your Bat'leths and Bloodwine ready, Captains, it's gonna be an honorable year.
