Originally announced back at E3 2016, Star Trek: Bridge Crew's release date has since gone through a couple of delays. But finally, the highly anticipated VR title is now available on the PC and PlayStation 4 for all Star Trek fans to enjoy.
The game takes place in the new Star Trek universe, founded in the 2009 movie by J. J. Abrams. Up to four players can take the crew roles of the Captain, Engineer, Helm, and Tactical in virtual reality to take part in a host of missions. Two ships are available for players to experience the game: the U.S.S Aegis and the iconic U.S.S Enterprise NCC-1701 from the original series.
The game's story campaign is set after the events in the 2009 movie and has players exploring The Trench, an uncharted sector in space. The feat which players accomplish is discovering a new suitable world for the surviving Vulkans following their world's destruction. The game also features an "Ongoing Voyages" game mode, where players can take part in randomized missions around the universe.
The aforementioned co-op mode is also cross-platform compatible, where PC and PlayStation 4 players can join in on a voyage together.
Moreover, HTC made an announcement over Twitter earlier today, revealing that every new purchase of an HTC Vive will arrive with a free copy of Star Trek: Bridge Crew, a great opportunity for anyone looking to jump into the VR space.
