Today Cryptic Studios released a much anticipated beta patch for Star Trek Online. The patch has addressed over 150 issues and updates, with mission bugs being summarized simply as fixed for nearly every mission. The most notable change is the removal of level restrictions. Players can now reach the level of admiral and fully experience the game as intended. Players will also notice an improved user interface and map system. Cryptic still lists 24 known issues and states that they are working to address those soon. Star Trek Online open-beta will run through January 26th, with a launch date of February 2nd.
