Microsoft has announced that Star Trek DAC will be up on Xbox Live Arcade tomorrow.The top-down multiplayer shooter with the mysterious acronym will soon begin its five-year mission to explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilisations, and then blast them to pieces, for the price of 800 Microsoft Points.DAC is joined tomorrow by Texas Cheat ‘Em, an eight-player game of Texas Hold ‘Em which allows players to play minigames when waiting for their opponents. These minigames grant the ability to cheat, with x-ray vision, chip-stealing, and card-swapping on offer. This, too, is 800 Microsoft Points.Texas Cheat ‘Em will also be up on PSN on Thursday, but PlayStation and PC owners will have to wait longer for DAC, with releasesfor these other platforms.Hopefully this means we’ll find out what DAC actually stands for. Chillingly, we’ve realised that it may be a terrifying warning: Don’t Anger Clowns. Wise words indeed, as you should never trust anyone who smiles that much. Some have claimed it’s Deathmatch Assault Conquest – the names of the three game modes – but that’s much too simple an explanation.
