A new four player co-op VR Star Trek game called Star Trek Bridge Crew has been revealed ahead of the UbiSoft conference on Monday
Earlier this month, previous cast members of the Star Trek TV series took part in filming for an E3 reveal video which included Karl Urban (Bones Into Darkness, Beyond), Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine, Voyager) and LeVar Burton (Geordi La Forge, TNG).
In the game, which is set on the Aegis, up to four players are placed on a virtual Star Trek bridge where they will use controllers to help carry out orders from their chairs such as activating warp drive, scanning, firing torpedoes and other typical Star Trek bridge tasks.
The game is set in JJ Abram’s Star Trek universe and players will have to explore a sector of space called The Trench in search of a new planet for the inhabitants of Vulcan. Players will have to work together to succeed in the game’s story driven missions.
While it’s not quite the Holodeck yet, it’s at least one step closer. The game is being developed by Red Storm (Farcry 4, Ghost Recon) and we’ll find out more about the game next week but we do know it’s coming to the Oculus and Vive.
