Cutting edge virtual reality technology is set to bring cutting edge 1960s special effects technology back to life in Star Trek: Bridge Crew, an upcoming virtual reality game coming out for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Playstation 4 VR. The game allows 1-4 players to explore a stunning HD recreation of the set from the classic 1996 series that was originally broadcast to television sets that weight 1000 pounds, had a screen the size of a walnut, and resolution of three and a half pixels. As if that weren’t dazzling enough, the game will feature an “Ongoing Voyages” mode where infinite randomized missions will be generated to take place in the single room of the spaceship.

The bridge of the USS Aegis, otherwise known as that ship no one plays Bridge Crew as now that they can play as the Enterprise.

Star Trek: Bridge Crew was originally scheduled to hit stores in March, and was meant to only have the bridge of a new ship designed for the game, the USS Aegis, but the addition of the Enterprise and its crew was added this week and the release date pushed back to May 30, which really might as well be June. You’re not fooling anyone, Ubisoft.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
