Apparently you really can’t take the Starfleet training out of Star Trek actors.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew impressed Star Trek actors
Of all the games announced during E3, perhaps the most exciting for sci-fi fans is Star Trek: Bridge Crew. This VR game puts co-operative team directly on a Starfleet ship as officers, where they must work together to complete various missions. But perhaps no one was more impressed than Levar Burton, Karl Urban, and Jeri Ryan – all Star Trek actors who tried the game for Ubisofts Bridge Crew reveal video.
“When I walked in, I wasn’t really sure what I was actually walking into,” Burton said. “If I could’ve imagined what I would’ve wanted the Star Trek VR game to be, this is it! This is what we’ve been waiting for.”
It’s a sentiment that was absolutely echoed by Burton’s fellow Star Trek actors. “That was an extraordinary experience,” Urban said, “to be fully encompassed in a world.”
“You’re talking to each other, taking orders from the captain,” Jeri Ryan explained. “It’s really cool.”
Star Trek: Bridge Crew provides four ship stations that have to coordinate with each other to complete Starfleet missions – Captain, Helm, Tactical, and Engineering. Despite having straightforward responsibilities at each post, the player interactions allow for additional mechanical depth as you attempt to complete randomly-generated missions.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew is expected to launch for the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR in Fall 2016.
