During the VR section of Ubisoft’s press conference they showed off a new Star Trek game, Star Trek Bridge Crew. Star Trek Bridge Crew is a co-op game where you and friends take control of different characters on the bridge in order to complete tasks and keep the ship going. Ubisoft showed a bunch of actors from the show playing the game which can be seen below.
In an on stage interview Lavar Burton was incredibly enthusiastic about the game, and while I’m sure he’s being being paid, I have to say I believed him. While it’s tough to show VR this is one of those few times where it didn’t completely go over my head. The one big issue I see with Star Trek Bridge Crew is the need to play with friends because let’s face it most people don’t have VR yet. Either way it feels like a good idea, and Star Trek Bridge Crew is out this fall on all major VR systems.
