GoG.com has added two more classic Star Trek games to its storefront. The DRM-free digital games store added six old-school Star Trek games to its library on Star Trek Day in September, making them playable on modern systems for the first time. Now it has followed through on its promise to release the real-time strategy games Star Trek: Armada and Star Trek: Armada II as well. Both games are now available to purchase sale on GoG.com, and the previously added Star Trek games are on sale for 20% off to celebrate. This is a prime opportunity for anyone itching for Star Trek video game goodness while they wait for the recently announced Star Trek: Resurgence to release.
Per the game's GoG.com store page, in Star Trek: Armada, "War rages across the Alpha Quadrant. You command four powerful races in a strategic struggle for survival. Who will live? Who will be assimilated? The future depends on your every decisions."
In Star Trek: Armada II, "The Borg are back with an insidious new weapon that threatens the very fabric of the galaxy. Meanwhile, a spatial rift has the mysterious Species 8472 flooding into Federation space. Battle in intense competition over TCP/IP LAN, where the outcome of every encounter depends on your ability to manage your fleets across the galaxy. All-new ship classes, weapons and intense tactical challenges collide in epic 3-D battles."
GoG.com's collection of eight classic Star Trek games now includes genres spanning from real-time strategy to first-person shooter. Here are the other six games:
- Star Trek: Voyager – Elite Force – One blast from destruction, the U.S.S. Voyager is mysteriously transported into a hull space infested with danger. As part of Voyager's elite Hazard Team, you must defend it from a host of scavenging aliens, then infiltrate a Borg Cube and derelict vessels to eradicate your deadly foes. The Quake III Arena™ engine powers the dynamic gameplay as you fight for survival through 40 ultra-intense single-player missions and 16 multiplayer arenas. It's first-person shooter action that won't quit. But, be prepared-if Voyager is destroyed, humanity won't be far behind...
- Star Trek: Elite Force II – The alien invaders show no mercy, and neither should you. Hack, blast and vaporize your way into the heart of galactic evil with devastating firepower. Battle through the ravaged hulk of a massive starship, protect an alien colony under siege, face the unknown on a treacherous volcanic planetoid and assault a host of insidious alien strongholds. Where diplomacy fails, the Hazard Team thrives.
- Star Trek: Hidden Evil – Prepare to engage… the hidden evil. Plunged into the wake of the events following Star Trek: Insurrection, you find yourself embroiled in an enemy plot to harness the incredibly destructive powers of a coveted genetic seed. You must engage alien forces and outwit your adversaries in a series of challenging missions...or else the Federation will fall victim to its ruthless archenemy.
- Star Trek: Away Team – Sensitive situations call for discreet operations. Deadlocked in a desperate war, the Federation creates a covert team of specialists trained to eliminate problems Starfleet can't officially touch. Their identity is undocumented; their purpose is essential. Beneath a veil of secrecy, your team await its orders… Medical, Engineering, Security, Science and Command experts form your Away Team accordingly to your specific mission objectives. Complex alien surroundings are the setting for your stealth missions, including Romulan outposts, Borg cubes, and unpredictable foreign landscapes.
- Star Trek: Starfleet Command III – Sometimes, the only way to restore peace is to wage war. The alliance between the Klingons and the United Federation of Planets has never been stronger. Together, they begin construction of a starbase with the ability to detect cloaked ships in the neutral zone. The only things standing in their way: the Romulans. Play three sides of an epic conflict for control of the galaxy. Although the challenges are many, the goal is one – command your starship to victory for your empire.
- Star Trek: Bridge Commander – Command from the captain's chair, interacting with your 3-D crew and overseeing the bridge from a first-person perspective. Prepare to face the consequences of your decisions as you issue orders affecting the course of the game.
