Star Trek Online: Season 13 – Escalation is now available on PC


Season 13 – Escalation is now available on PC for Star Trek Online and will launch at a later date on PS4 and Xbox One. This season introduces “a new featured episode continuing the Tzenkethi War story arc, improvements to matchmaking, class-specific set gear and the new War Games system, which allows players to team up in competitive PvE scenarios.”

Players can also celebrate this release by entering a contest to win a six-day cruise across the Atlantic. You can participate until May 5 and the winner will receive an ocean-view cabin for two on Star Trek: The Cruise II, a six-day voyage hosted by George Takei and other Star Trek actors. In addition, the winner will be granted every starship currently available in the C-Store of Star Trek Online’s PC version. You can see the details here and learn that George Takei will be the host, with some other stars also in the cruise.

Here is what Season 13 brings:

• New Featured Episode – In the new episode, “Mirrors and Smoke,” captains will travel with the Lukari to New Kentar and defend the planet from the Tzenkethi.
• War Games System – Season 13 marks the debut of War Games, new competitive PvE scenarios which pit two teams of five players against each other for rewards.
– “Core Assault” – A space-based 5v5 Convergence-class scenario, where two flights of captains compete to cross the finish line in a space station based in the Adelphous System.
– “Binary Circuit” – A ground-based 5v5 Gauntlet-class scenario where captains will solve puzzles and complete various challenges in a Borg Co-operative Cube.
• Rebalance Pass – A full rebalance pass has been made to ground and space combat to ensure that no matter what choice captains make when outfitting their skills or ship, it isn’t a wrong one.
• Player Potential System – Matchmaking for Star Trek Online has been improved with the new Player Potential System, which evaluates players based on various factors, such as their characters’ equipment, specialization and participation in competitive matches.
• New Reputation – Captains who participate in Season 13’s War Games queues will be rewarded with new Competitive Marks and Assessed Stratagems. The marquee rewards from this set feature class-specific set gear for the first time ever in Star Trek Online. Captains can choose to equip any of these three sets for their starships, and mix and match the individual sets as they see fit.
