Klingons Confirmed as PvP Only

Klingons Confirmed as PvP Only -

Star Trek Online Producer Daniel Stahl let slip some disappointing information during a recent podcast interview with the folks at STOked, namely that Klingons would not have any genesis content, nor any episodic content, but most disappointing of all, Klingons will be PvP only.

This information surfaced on the Star Trek Online official forums in a thread started by user Crimson_Shadows, and has now been confirmed by Cryptic Studios' Jack Emmert in a stickied announcement.

Jack Emmert on Klingons in Star Trek Online:

Seems like good ole Dan kicked off Klingon month in STYLE!

First, let me apologize that info has been slow to get out. Believe it or not, December was supposed to "klingon" month. I have zero clue why it's Dec. 15th and still nothing, but I can tell you this WILL change (I just saw the threads yesterday).

Secondly, yes, Klingon gameplay is almost entirely PvP. We are trying to get some PvE in (there's already a tad bit). And, if the players demand it, we'll add more content (like episodes). I want us to be agile as a company and respond to what the customers want.

Third, I'll reiterate my point in the other thread. I'm most excited about playing a Klingon. I love combat in a bird of prey. Klingons are getting attention - from me. It's not as much as I'd want, but we have a foundation that we can grow into. If people like the federation gameplay, we can put that in for the Klingons. If players have a different set of requests for klingons, we can do that instead. We can make STO into the game that YOU want.

I'll close with that. MMORPG's aren't just about release. They're about community and the years of gameplay. Disappointed that there isn't more Klingon gameplay? Play STO, tell us what you'd like and we can deliver that. Every passing day, we can make STO into what the fans want.

So, there you have it. Klingon content could certainly broaden in scope post-launch, but for launch you can expect Klingons to be PvP only. Sorry guys.

On the plus side, we've got a number of new Klingon screenshots to tease you with! You can check them out in our Star Trek Online gallery.
