  • Play Real Pool – Delight your senses with an immersive and accurate representation of the sport using motion control and real pool physics (be careful not to lean on the table, it’s not really there).
  • No Consequences – Enjoy the pleasure of throwing a bottle at your opponent or breaking one against the wall. We won’t make you clean-up in VR.

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.

Eagle Flight will be released on Oculus Rift beginning October 18, PlayStation®VR beginning November 8 and HTC Vive beginning December 20.

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.
