Ubisoft is working on a Star Trek game for the virtual reality headset. Its called Star Trek: Bridge Crew and Ubisoft have confirmed on Twitter that it’ll be showcased on Monday, June 13th, during its E3 briefing.
The Ubisoft studio responsible for several Tom Clancy games, Red Storm Entertainment, is leading development for Bridge Crew. According to an Associated Press story, the game is an ‘Interactive four-player experience’ set in JJ Abrams Star Trek universe where you board the Aegis starship as a tactical, helm, or engineering officer, or the captain.
Missions will be both story-focused and “randomly generated.” While in virtual reality, players can do things like scan objects in space, activate the warp drive, and display important information onto a “viewscreen” within the game.
Red Storm Creative Director David Votypka says:
“It’s up to you if you want to try the Kirk approach or be more methodical,” “The game is more about how you and your crew approach situations. It’s not binary. Is it more important to save the Vulcan scientists or rescue everyone on the planet? It might be too difficult to do both. It’s just like the show. There’s not any one right answer.”
Bridge Crew will launch this fall for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR. Stay tuned to Gearnuke as we’ll report back with more details from E3 as they are made available.
