Ubisoft Announces Release Dates for Virtual Reality Titles
Today at Gamescom, Ubisoft® announced the release dates for Virtual Reality titles Eagle Flight, Werewolves Within, and Star Trek™: Bridge Crew. All three titles will be coming to PlayStation®VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive starting this October.
Eagle Flight, developed by FunHouse, a division of Ubisoft Montreal, sends players to the skies of Paris where as an eagle they will soar over the historic city and its iconic landmarks. Playable in single player and in the heart-pumping multiplayer “Capture the Prey” mode, players will feel the true sensation and exhilaration of flight. Eagle Flight will be released on Oculus Rift beginning October 18, PlayStation®VR beginning November 8 and HTC Vive beginning December 20.
Ascend to the stars, where no one has gone before in virtual reality, with Star Trek™: Bridge Crew. Developed by Red Storm Entertainment, players will be beamed right into the action of a Starfleet ship as a member of the Federation, exploring space with a crew or solo as Captain. Star Trek™: Bridge Crew was designed exclusively for VR, capitalizing on the powerful sense of social presence possible through virtual reality. It will be available on all three platforms beginning November 29.
Players will be transported to the medieval village of Gallowston in Werewolves Within, a game of social deduction that brings the competitive fun of game night with friends to virtual reality. Developed by Red Storm Entertainment, a Ubisoft Studio, uncover the werewolves that have been terrorizing the townsfolk through fast-paced games with five to eight players. No two games are the same–one round you could be a villager, pleading your case for innocence, and the next round you could be a werewolf, lying your way to a win. Werewolves Within will be released on all major VR platforms beginning December 6.
Virtual reality will also be introduced into the arcade-racing universe of TrackMania Turbo. Thanks to a free patch, players will be able to enjoy the game on PlayStation®VR beginning November 8.
With its lineup of VR titles set for release this fall, Ubisoft believes in the strong potential of Virtual reality to redefine social gaming with a unique sense of reality. Star Trek™: Bridge Crew, Werewolves Within and Eagle Flight Ubisoft’s recent partnership with VR film company, SpectreVision, are its latest ventures in the emerging technology.
