(Redwood City, CA) July 12, 2012 - Perfect World Entertainment Inc. today announced the release of?Star Trek Online Season 6: Under Siege. This latest major update to?Star Trek Online?introduces the?Fleet (Guild) Advancement System, which allows Fleet members to construct, level-up and defend their own Starbase. Alongside new Fleet events and additional end-game content for max level players, with?Season 6: Under Siege, the free-to-play MMO sees its first major Foundry update since launch.
"Our primary focus with?Season 6?is to have fleets become a more central and fundamental part of the?Star Trek Online?experience," said Dan Stahl, Executive Producer of?Star Trek Online, Cryptic Studios. "Fleets may now work to improve their Starbase category, unlocking additional functionality and increasing the size and grandeur of the Starbase itself.""
Star Trek Online Season 6: Under Siege?key features include:
Fleet (Guild) Advancement System Fleets construct their own Fleet Holdings with Starbases. Fleet Officers assign specific Fleet Projects for members to carry out in order to build their Starbase and master three specialization tracks: Military, Engineering, and Science.
Fleets can also improve Starbase specialization through five tiers of design, unlocking new Fleet Projects to earn more Fleet experience points and rewards. Functionality items to Starbases include Transwarp gates that allow for rapid access to different sectors.
Fleet Starbase Defense Missions New missions and events that call upon Fleets to defend their Starbases include a five-man Starbase Alert, two five-man Fleet Sorties, and a 20-man Fleet Action. Some of these will be available at all ranks, while others will only be available to Vice Admirals (Federation Faction) and Lieutenant Generals (Klingon Faction).
Foundry Updates New features to the Foundry,?Star Trek Online's?popular user-content creation tool, include an improved user interface, which makes it easier for players to identify items prior to map placement.
Players will also be able to find additional items such as vivid backdrops, as well as new ground and space maps in the content library.
Fleet Rewards Unlock the new Starbase Exterior and Interior options as your Fleet advances in the aggregate Starbase track. In the other tracks, stores that sell ultra-rare Fleet Rewards, such as new high-end gear, starships, costumes, materials and various tactical assets, can be unlocked.
Fleet UI Redesign Expect a new Fleet Home Page and Fleet Holdings Page, which has been created to provide information on Fleet Status, Projects and Contribution Leaderboards.
