Despite not being a big Trek fan myself, one of the more interesting games shown at E3 this year was Ubisoft’s VR title – Star Trek Bridge Crew, a team based VR game which puts you as the crew of a Federation vessel working together to complete an objective.
Developed by Red Storm Entertainment and originally set to launch later this year, the game has now been pushed back by Ubisoft for a 2017 release date. “In order to deliver the best game experience possible at launch, we have decided to push the release of Star Trek: Bridge Crew to March 14, 2017,” Ubisoft said. “Star Trek: Bridge Crew is designed exclusively for VR and we want to offer a compelling and engaging experience. Command of the USS Aegis is right around the corner!”
The Ubisoft VR title is set in the new 2009 film continuity and will involve a storyline where players “Explore a largely uncharted sector of space known as The Trench, in hopes of locating a suitable new home world for the decimated Vulcan populace” while confronting the looming Klingon Empire. Bridge Crew is still set for a HTC Vibe, Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR.
