First announced last June, Ubisoft’s Star Trek: Bridge Crew virtual reality team-up game was advertised to be set aboard a the USS Aegis – Kelvin Timeline-style starship, designed to resemble the USS Enterprise commanded by Chris Pine’s version of Captain Kirk – and debuted with a Trek-star-filled launch trailer.
Originally expected to release to the public in November 2016, the game was pushed to an early March launch last fall to extend production time and “deliver the best game experience possible at launch.”
Now, Ubisoft has announced an additional rescheduling for the Bridge Crew game, dropping the street date back to May 30 – but adding on a new surprise from Red Storm Entertainment, the developer behind the game.
In addition to the Aegis, the VR adventure will also contain an option to play as a crew member aboard William Shatner’s Enterprise, as the classic Constitution-class bridge has joined the fleet of virtual settings in the Bridge Crew game.
“The original U.S.S. 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.”
While this additional delay is sure to disappoint those of you who have been waiting to beam aboard a Starfleet ship of your own, being able to command the classic Enterprise surely looks to be worth the wait from the first screenshot released from the new set.
Once Star Trek: Bridge Crew debuts, it will be available to play on several VR platforms, including PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift – and you can preorder from our links below to help support TrekCore while launching your (virtual) Starfleet career!
