Star Trek: Bridge Crew was a VR game many fans of the franchise have been waiting for. While not a groundbreaking game or anything like that, it let fans live their dream of being in control of a Federation spaceship with friends. It turns out fans who don't have VR hardware can enjoy the game now too, thanks to a new update from Ubisoft.
According to a news post from Ubisoft, players will now be able to play the game whether they have VR hardware or not. We don't always see other developers make VR games playable on regular systems, so this is a great treat for fans of the franchise. Overall, fans should have a good time now that anyone can play it.
Here is the full post from Ubisoft:
Star Trek: Bridge Crew challenges four players to work together to pilot a Federation starship through dangerous missions, but until now, it's only been playable through VR hardware. That changes with the latest Star Trek: Bridge Crew free update, which removes the requirement for a headset and opens the door for non-VR players to join in and boldly go where no one has gone before.
Using a controller or a mouse and keyboard, players with and without VR headsets can be seamlessly matched together to pilot the U.S.S. Aegis (or U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701) as Starfleetofficers,or play alone as captain. The update also includes enhanced Windows Mixed Reality support, adding more options for players to explore uncharted space.
Fans can purchase Star Trek: Bridge Crew now on PS4 and PC.
