As Star Trek: Into Darkness inches towards its May release date, we've got an update on something else more than a little Trek...

Paramount Pictures has entered into an unprecedented partnership with NAMCOBandaiGames to develop an all new property for Star Trek The Videogame.

Drawing on elements of the new mythology created by JJ Abrams for his 2009 feature, Star Trek The Videogame will feature the voices and likenesses of both Zachary Quinto as Spock and Chris Pine as Kirk for a co-operative adventure which spans the original story right up to the events which take place in Into Darkness.

Now, NAMCOBandai has confirmed that the game will debut on consoles on the 26th of April in Europe, bringing an original adventure to gamers weeks before the crew hit cinema screens for the movie sequel.

In addition, the preorder campaign for Star Trek The Videogame is already underway, with early adopters picking up the 'Elite Officer Pack.' This contains exclusive items and unique uniforms for the playable characters. Check out the pack details below.

- Stealth Pack – Kirk and Spock stealth uniforms, plus Starfleet Type IV Stealth Sniper Rifle and extra ammo
- Brawler Pack – Kirk leather jacket costume and Spock Vulcan Science Academy costume
- Kelvin Pack – Kirk and Spock U.S.S. Kelvin uniforms, plus U.S.S. Kelvin Hand Phaser
- Academy Pack – Kirk Academy Uniform, Spock Officer Dress Uniform, plus Academy Phaser
- Kobayashi Maru Pack – Kirk and Spock Kobayashi Maru uniforms
