The dream of many a sci-fi fan may finally be realised in Ubisoft’s Star Trek: Bridge Crew, due release later this Spring. It was leaked several days ago that Ubisoft were making a new Star Trek game, but the company formally announced the project during its E3 conference.
Bridge Crew is an exclusively VR title, simulating the experience of manning a Federation starship. Each player on the bridge occupies one of four stations; Captain, Helm, Tactical, or Engineering. Players must then do their part from their respective terminals to complete missions together.
One can see how the choice of Captain could make or break the experience. Revealing untapped leadership potential in some, whilst provoking frustration in others. Also interesting will be people’s reactions to orders they don’t agree with, and the social mutinies that will no doubt be posted on Youtube.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew will be coming later this year PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
