Players will now be able to play aboard two different Starfleet vessels when the game launches on May 30.
Ubisoft has revealed that the iconic U.S.S. Enterprise bridge from “Star Trek” will be playable in its upcoming virtual reality game “Star Trek: Bridge Crew.”
Under license from CBS Consumer Products, and announced last June, the new game will allow players to command a Starfleet vessel and complete missions that will determine the fate of their ship and crew. Users will also have the option to command the original U.S.S. Enterprise in the Ongoing Voyages mode or the U.S.S. Aegis, a brand-new ship created for the game.
“Star Trek: Bridge Crew” will be available for PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive on May 30.
“We felt it was important to include a part of classic ‘Star Trek’ with this game, especially during ‘Star Trek’s’ 50th anniversary,” says David Votypka, senior creative director, Red Storm Entertainment, a Ubisoft studio. “The original U.S.S. Enterprise is such an iconic part of the franchise–it’s the ship that started it all. 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. We’re very excited to see player reactions when they step onto the U.S.S. Enterprise original bridge for the first time, and experience ‘Star Trek: Bridge Crew’ in a whole new way. We’re also appreciative of players’ patience as we finalize work on the game to bring the ‘Star Trek’ experience we envisioned to life.”
