Console players on XBox One and PS4 have recently been introduced to the Tzenkethi with Season 12: The Reckoning launching earlier this month.

With the console releases coming in thick and fast, but still lagging behind console updates, STO’s Executive Producer Steven Ricossa has been eager to lessen the gap between PC and console releases in the coming months, mentioning;

With the release of Season 12, you’ll notice that content is coming out sooner and sooner on Xbox One and Playstation 4. Soon, you won’t have to wait long at all to enjoy all of the great new content that comes out every month for Star Trek Online. It’s been fantastic to see Star Trek Online grow and change while on Xbox and Playstation consoles, and bringing the console version to content parity with the PC version has been a goal from the start. I’m incredibly excited to see that we’ve achieved that goal, and will continue to bring fresh content and updates into the console space for free.
