Star Trek: Bridge Crew puts you and your friends in command

Control a star ship with motion controls on the Oculus Rift later this year.

Announced today at E3 by development studio Ubisoft, Star Trek: Bridge Crew promises to let 4 players work together to control their very own star ship.

It sounds like the dream game for many Star Trek fans, with story-based missions as well as randomly generated missions to enjoy. Players take on the roles of captain, tactical officer, engineer or helm office, and use the Oculus Touch controllers to pilot and battle their way through space. Sounds epic.

A promotional video was today released that features actors from multiple Star Trek shows and the recent films. You’ll see Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine), LeVar Burton (Geordi La Forge) and Karl Urban (Bones) all work together to control and star ship and generally gush about the experience (who can blame them?)

That’s all we know about the game for now, but we’ll bring you more about this fascinating multiplayer VR game as further details are released.
