GVK: Will players be able to pilot shuttles in the game and use transporters? If so, how will this work?
CZ: Most of the time, you and your away team will use the transporters. You’ll be beaming all over the place! There will be some content that you need a shuttle to reach, but you won’t be manually flying the shuttle through the atmosphere and landing on the surface of a planet.
I hope they are literal when they say beaming all over the place. I would love to see total control of the transporter locations so I can beam anything or anyone with freedom.
I'm a bit sad about the shuttle info since that seemed like it would've been a fun concept. I noticed they specifically said atmosphere to landing. Maybe they still might add shuttles but just not in that scenario.
