Last week, various press popped into Ubisoft’s Guildford office to try upcoming VR title Star Trek Bridge Crew.
This was the first chance most had to get hands-on with the game, so we thought we’d give you a quick round-up the response. GamesRadar+ described the game as “the right kind of virtual reality disaster“, GameReactor called it “the kind of game VR was made for” and TheSixthAxis called it a “fantastically realised virtual reality foray“.
Ellen, Mike, Andy and Captain Luke from Outside Xtra made the following video showing them getting to grips with the PlayStation VR version of the game, then taking on the Kobayashi Maru. For the uninitiated, the Kobayashi Maru is Starfleet Academy’s no-win simulation designed to test the character of cadets (as first seen in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, fact fans.) The video gives a great overview of the game experience – showing a skilled crew working together to get the job done. The job of crashing into asteroids and accidentally shooting things, that is.
Star Trek Bridge Crew comes to PSVR, HTC Vive and Occulus Rift on May 30th – complete with cross-platform multiplayer, and a single-player campaign. For more on the game, check out our previous VR coverage and stay tuned to UbiBlog.
