Captaining a Federation starship via virtual reality is the dream of many, one you’ll soon be able to realise thanks to Star Trek: Bridge Crew. We might be waiting a while for the holodeck version, but come the end of May, you’ll at least be able to done your VR headset of choice and go where no one has gone before… with the exception of the game’s developers.
According to Ubisoft’s Mikel Reparaz, Star Trek: Bridge Crew will be available on May 30 (probably May 31 locally) for PC and PS4 and will support the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and of course, PS VR.
Reparaz’s post also mentions that along with the USS Aegis, players will be able to helm the Kirk-era USS Enterprise, specifically the original NCC-1701 (not A, B, C, D or E variants):
“The original USS Enterprise is such an iconic part of the franchise,” says David Votypka, senior creative director at Red Storm Entertainment. “The adventures and relationships that took place on the ship are a special part of Star Trek history, so we were determined to give players the opportunity to create their own adventures and stories on this classic ship.”
Seems like the game will be more than open to having additional starships added later on down the line. I’d definitely enjoy some Defiant action.
