Ubisoft have announced the release dates for it’s first three dedicated VR games, ‘Star Trek: Bridge Crew‘, ‘Eagle Flight‘ and ‘Werewolves Within‘.

Ubisoft are one of the first triple-A games studio to throw their weight behind virtual reality in gaming in a concerted way and over the last 12 – 18 months have announced a string of titles build specifically for VR headsets.

First up for launch is the multiplayer title Eagle Flight, which is due to hit Oculus Rift first on October 18th with both HTC Vive and PlayStation VR versions following on December 20th. This is what Road to VR‘s Scott Hayden had to say about the title after his hands on at E3:

Flying at a fast clip around the historical sites in the 7th arrondissement in a human-free gay Paris sounds fun, ma oui? But swooping under bridges, weaving through the trees, alleyways and buildings can be a tricky thing if you don’t approach it right from a locomotion standpoint. Eagle Flight sounds like the sort of game that on paper would make you want to tear off a headset and drink a half-pint of Dramamine, but in practice it’s really one of the most comfortable high-speed games out there.

Next up, we’ll be seeing Star Trek: Bridge Crew, another will get a simultaneous release on all VR platforms on November 29. Another multiplayer title, the game sees different players assuming different crew roles on the bridge of an Enterprise starship. You can see some footage of our time with the game above.

Finally, December 6th will see the launch of Werewolves Within, once again on all VR platforms. A neat virtual version of the well known party game, Road to VR’s Scott Hayden liked what he say after his time with it at GDC in March.

Trackmania Turbo too, a title which is already released for PlayStation 4, will receive a patch to enable support for PlayStation VR support on November 8th.

Thanks VG247 for the heads up.

    I’m looking forward to Eagle Flight. People who I’ve demoed the Vive/Rift to have asked about a game where you can fly, so this would fit the bill nicely.

      You KNOWWWWWWWWW it’ll be arcadey as hell, don’t expect to be able to even move in the Z axis… 0_0

      • Get Schwifty!

        “Arcadey” or not as a platform for cooperative play it’s only a start for games where multiple people coordinate virtually and work together. I’d pick it up just for the experience of that alone, arcade y or not.

        Interested on how much of a bead the 11/29 release of ST:BC gives us on a release date for Touch….

    Is the delay on Eagle Flight for Vive an Oculus exclusivity deal or a technical delay to accommodate a slightly different version of the game for use w/hand controllers?

  • Pistol Pete
