Trek Industries | January 2015 Update

We have been working on a variety of projects these last few months, including updating our Steam title, ORION: Prelude. On top of this we are starting up additional productions including our next game and a TV show that follows behind the scenes development and world travels.

[ Prelude Version 2.0 ]
We are getting ready to launch v2.0 which will include a significant amount of changes, improvements and optimization. The current expected release date is February 2015. More details about that patch and the community-inspired changes can be found here.


[ Our Next Title - Steam, PS4, Xbox One ]
In addition, we are also in full production on our next official game title which is targeting a 2015 release on Steam, Playstation 4 and Xbox One. We haven’t released *too* many details about this project but we typically post most sneak-peeks on the Facebook page.


[ TV Show ]
Because of this we are doing something large in 2015, which is something new for me personally, especially. We are going to have cameras rolling typically 24/7 and will be doing a TV Show of sorts showing behind the scenes development on these new titles as well as our world travels.


[ Now Hiring + Musicians ]
Most of the developers from around the world are participating in this. Locations include Canada, Australia, UK, Midwest USA, East Coast USA and West Coast USA. We will be working with many musicians so if you’d like to have your music featured within please contact us for paid work. We are hiring for ALL positions.

[ Ending Notes ]
There is no official name yet and early filming has only just commenced, which is what this footage is from. Getting used to the tech and cameras being around and making sure audio levels/video quality is where it needs to be.
