VR is going to be part of the games industry for quite some time, that much is pretty clear at this point. Big companies are getting involved, and Ubisoft have just revealed a pretty interesting new title.
They are going out to space to make Star Trek: Bridge Crew, which they will be showing on Monday's E3 Press conference. Red Storm Entertainment are taking it on, and it's a 4 player experience that is set in the Abrams-verse that will allow you to take up the role of Captain or a tactical, engineering, or helm office. It looks to be based a lot on choices and interactive stories.
Creative Director David Votypka said:
It's up to you if you want to try the Kirk approach or be more methodical. The game is more about how you and your crew approach situations. It's not binary. Is it more important to save the Vulcan scientists or rescue everyone on the planet? It might be too difficult to do both. It's just like the show. There's not any one right answer.
This sounds really neat, and I hope it has some lengthy heft to it. As stated, we will be seeing it Monday though. I'll be here at E3 telling you all about it too.
