Previously set for launch at the end of November, Star Trek: Bridge Crew is now releasing on March 14, 2017 for PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive, Ubisoft announced today.
“In order to deliver the best game experience possible at launch, we have decided to push the release of Star Trek: Bridge Crew to March 14, 2017,” Ubisoft said in the delay message. “Star Trek: Bridge Crew is designed exclusively for VR and we want to offer a compelling and engaging experience. Command of the USS Aegis is right around the corner!”
Priced at $59.99 USD, Star Trek: Bridge Crew lets you command the U.S.S. Aegis as you explore an uncharted sector of space called The Trench:
Star Trek: Bridge Crew puts you and your friends in the heart of a starship, where – as officers of the Federation – every action and decision you make together will determine the fate of your ship and crew. Developed specifically for VR, Star Trek: Bridge Crew is the only game to offer a true-to-life level of immersion in the Star Trek universe.
In Star Trek: Bridge Crew, the Federation dispatches you and your crew to command the new vessel U.S.S. Aegis as part of a critical initiative. Your mission: explore a largely uncharted sector of space known as The Trench, in hopes of locating a suitable new home world for the decimated Vulcan populace. The Trench contains stunning beauty and undiscovered wonders, but also strange anomalies and dangers yet unknown. The Klingon Empire is also active in the region, and their purpose is undoubtedly a threat to the Federation’s plans. It’s up to you and your crew to chart the sector to determine the Klingons’ aims, and to secure a peaceful Federation presence.
Two of Ubisoft’s other PlayStation VR games, Eagle Flight and Werewolves Within, are still releasing on November 8 and December 6, respectively. Eagle Flight (with PS4 Pro support) is priced at $39.99 USD, while Werewolves Within (online connection required) is $29.99 USD.
