STAR TREK: Tactical Assault™ for Nintendo DS™ Ships to Retail Stores

Real-Time Strategy Game Set in the Original STAR TREK® Series Universe

Rockville, Maryland - Oct. 26, 2006 - Bethesda Softworks® today announced that STAR TREK: Tactical Assault for the Nintendo DS is now shipping to North American retail stores. STAR TREK: Tactical Assault for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system will follow closely behind, beginning to appear on store shelves the week of November 13th. Both versions feature exciting, real-time spaceship combat set in the universe of the original STAR TREK® series.

STAR TREK: Tactical Assault features two full-length campaigns for the Federation and the Klingon Empire. You take command of a powerful warship and must make split-second decisions under fire, outmaneuver enemy warships, and make calculated assessments about your enemy's weaknesses while protecting your own. With a multitude of paths to choose from in each campaign, you will ultimately decide the direction and outcome of your story.

In addition to the story driven single-player campaigns, STAR TREK: Tactical Assault features high-energy, action-packed one-off battles found in the 'Skirmish' and 'Wireless Multiplayer' modes. The 'Skirmish' mode allows players to test their abilities against the A.I. while the wireless multiplayer action allows them to go head-to-head against a friend. In these special modes players can command ships from the Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Gorn, and Orion fleets.

Developed by Quicksilver Software under the direction of Bethesda Softworks, STAR TREK: Tactical Assault is rated E for Everyone. For more information visit http://startrek.bethsoft.com.

STAR TREK: Tactical Assault is the second title to be released in Bethesda's STAR TREK® lineup following the launch of the highly popular STAR TREK®: Encounters for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system in September. STAR TREK: Legacy is scheduled for a North American release in November for the Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows.
