Along with the new release date, Ubisoft also announced today that Star Trek: Bridge Crew will include a playable version of the U.S.S. Enterprise bridge from Star Trek: The Original Series. The U.S.S. Enterprise bridge will be available in the Ongoing Voyages mode, which generates randomized missions.
Red Storm Entertainment Senior Creative Director David Votypka explained why they included the U.S.S. Enterprise bridge:
We felt it was important to include a part of classic Star Trek with this game, especially during Star Trek’s 50th anniversary. The original U.S.S. Enterprise is such an iconic part of the franchise – it’s the ship that started it all. 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.
Votypka also said they’re “appreciative of players’ patience as we finalize work on the game to bring the Star Trek experience we envisioned to life.”
Star Trek: Bridge Crew allows you to command a Starfleet vessel and complete missions either solo as Captain or co-operatively with a crew of up to four. As we learned in November, it will include cross-platform play.
Ubisoft added that they believe “in the strong potential of VR to redefine social gaming with a unique sense of reality.”
