Star Trek: Bridge Crew Scraps VR Requirement, Lets All Players Engage Together


Hey nerds, have you always dreamed of stepping aboard the bridge of a Starfleet cruiser, but don’t want to shell out for a VR headset to play Star Trek: Bridge Crew? Well, you’re in luck, as Ubisoft has released a new patch which removes the game’s VR requirements. Now everybody can blast a few Klingons with friends! You can check out a dev diary dedicated to the VR-scrapping patch, below.

Ghost Recon Frontline Testing Delayed Indefinitely Following Harshly Negative Fan Reaction

“More players can now live out their Star Trek fantasies as they take command of the USS Aegis and USS Enterprise NCC-1701 using a mouse and keyboard, or a controller. Players can join matches with both VR and non-VR players seamlessly across all platforms.

Developed by Ubisoft Red Storm, Star Trek: Bridge Crew transports fans into the Star Trek universe where they assume the role of a Starfleet officer and complete missions that will determine the fate of their ship and crew. Playable cooperatively online with a crew, or solo as Captain, Star Trek: Bridge Crew puts players directly onto the bridge of a new starship, the USS Aegis, and dispatches them to explore an uncharted sector of space.”

Star Trek: Bridge Crew isn’t abandoning VR by any means – in fact, the non-VR patch also adds support for Microsoft mixed-reality headsets. Regardless of how you may choose to play, Bridge crew lets everybody join games together.

Wccf’s Kai Powell found Star Trek: Bridge Crew to be a top-notch co-op experience in his review:

“There have been a few multiplayer experiences I’ve enjoyed on the PlayStation VR, but none capture the magic of cooperation in the same way that this game has.  If you can find some like-minded friends to join your adventures fresh out of Starfleet, Star Trek: Bridge Crew makes for a great social experience. Those that opt for a more single player experience might find themselves missing out on the magic.”

Star Trek: Bridge Crew is available on PC and PS4.
