Star Trek VR Game Plans

Ubisoft tweets about plans to show off a Star Trek VR game at E3 (thanks GameInformer). They point to a story on ABC News about the game, which will simulate being on the bridge crew of a starship, with VR allowing the illusion of operating a computer while you are actually merely operating a computer. Word is we'll get a first actual look at this tomorrow, and in the meantime, here's a bit from the article:
"Bridge Crew" utilizes a VR headset and hand-held controllers to boldly mimic seated players' heads and hands on the virtual bridge, providing 360-degree views and the ability to complete such tasks as activating the warp drive, scanning foreign objects in space and broadcasting relevant imagery to the ship's viewscreen. Urban, whose character rarely mashes buttons on the bridge, came away with an appreciation for his cast mates.

"In a funny kind of way, it gave me a new understanding for the reality of what we as actors pretend to do in our jobs," said Urban, who will reprise his role as McCoy on the big screen in "Star Trek Beyond" on July 22. "When you're playing the game, it's almost like you're not pretending. You're actually doing it. In some ways, it's one step closer to the experience."
