Exciting news everyone, Ubisoft have just revealed the release dates for their three virtual reality games! The future is almost here!
I think we should also take a moment to appreciate the fine work PR teams do at this time of year, rushed off their feet at conferences, arranging interviews and producing expertly crafted press releases. I think you all deserve to see the glorious, hard work from Ubisofts PR so here is the text from the press release in all it’s glory.
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 18th, PlayStation®VR beginning November 8th and HTC Vive beginning December 20th.
Ascend to the stars, where no one has gone before in virtual reality, with Star Trek™: Bridge Crew. Developed by Red Storm Entertainment, a Ubisoft Studio, players will be beamed right into the action as a member of the Federation serving aboard a Starfleet ship, exploring space with a crew or solo as the Captain. Star Trek™: Bridge Crew was designed exclusively for VR, capitalising on the powerful sense of social presence possible through virtual reality. It will be available on all three platforms beginning November 29th.
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 terrorising 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 6th.
Eagle Flight and Star Trek Bridge Crew will be available on PlayStation®VR as retail versions a week after their digital releases. 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 8th.
Is it not a thing of beauty? And certainly not an excuse for me not bother writing it up myself, no sirree.
