Star Trek: Bridge Crew Out Now

Star Trek: Bridge Crew is finally out and by the sounds of it, people are really enjoying the immersive experience. Check out the trailer and details below for this cross-platform VR game, including the exciting information on the IBM Watson experimental beta coming soon.

Make sure you listen to the upcoming PS Nation podcast for a compelling talk about the game. If it is anything like the fantastic Werewolves Within then I’m sold.

Today, Ubisoft® announced that Star Trek™: Bridge Crew, the virtual reality game where players explore space as a member of Starfleet, is now available for Oculus Rift, PlayStation®VR and HTC Vive. Developed by Red Storm Entertainment, a Ubisoft studio, under license by CBS Consumer Products, Star Trek: Bridge Crew is playable cross-platform.

Star Trek: Bridge Crew immerses fans into the Star Trek universe as they assume the role of a Starfleet officer and complete missions that will determine the fate of their ship and crew. Playable cooperatively online with a crew, or solo as Captain, Star Trek: Bridge Crew puts players and their friends directly onto the bridge of a new starship, the U.S.S. Aegis, as they are dispatched to explore an uncharted sector of space.

In addition to an engaging story campaign, Star Trek: Bridge Crew features an Ongoing Voyages mode featuring randomized missions for countless hours of solo and co-op adventures on board the U.S.S. Aegis or the legendary U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701, authentically recreated from Star Trek: The Original Series.

Created exclusively for VR, Star Trek: Bridge Crew utilizes the powerful sense of social presence possible through virtual reality. Through hand tracking and full-body avatars, including real-time lip-sync, players can live out their Star Trek fantasies as they operate the Starfleet ship as Captain, Engineer, Helm or Tactical. Each role is crucial to the success of the varied missions players face, and only by working together can the crew complete their objectives.

Additionally, Star Trek: Bridge Crew will include IBM Watson interactive speech and cognitive capabilities during an experimental beta period this summer. With IBM Watson, players will be able to use their voice and natural-language commands to interact with their virtual Starfleet crew members.

Star Trek: Bridge Crew marks the most recent project in virtual reality for Ubisoft, which believes in the strong potential of VR to redefine social gaming with a unique sense of reality. Ubisoft recently released Werewolves Within™ and Eagle Flight®, and announced a VR partnership with the film company SpectreVision.
