Star Trek Online is about to find some Common Ground

by: Ben Berry -
One thing can be said for Crytic, they're pushing content like mad for Star Trek Online like nobodys business. They've got a bunch of stuff coming. Their Common Ground update is kind of a hodge podge of changes. Several new missions, a new PvP map, and a bunch of other customization options for both Federation and Klingons. They still haven't included a wider range of external ship customizations, which is strange considering how much of the game you spend staring at the ourside of your ship. Hit the jump for the rest of the deets on this update.
