Some of the big videogame publishers have been fairly hesitant in supporting virtual reality (VR), unsure of how popular the technology will actually be. Ubisoft on the other hand has four titles that are either out or coming out for the major head-mounted displays (HMD), and today the company has released a brand new trailer showcasing them all.
The four videogames are Trackmania Turbo, Eagle Flight, Werewolves Within and Star Trek: Bridge Crew, all of which will support the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR headsets.
Trackmania Turbo was the earliest title to be confirmed for VR but has yet to receive a release date for the HMDs, even though it launched on Steam earlier this year. It’s an extreme, gravity defying racer featuring 200 tracks split over five difficulty levels, across 4 different environments: Rollercoaster Lagoon, International Stadium, Canyon Grand Drift and Valley Down & Dirty.
Eagle Flight is a single and multiplayer experience in which players control eagles flying through the streets and skies of a deserted Paris. The videogame has already launched on Oculus Rift, with the PlayStation VR version arriving on 8th November and the HTC Vive version on 20th, December 2016.
Werewolves Within has been the quietest of the bunch, a multiplayer title for 5 to eight people, in which players have to deduce which of the group is actually a werewolf. The videogames release date is currently listed on Ubisoft’s website as 6th, December 2016 for all three HMDs.
The last VR title on the list is probably the biggest, Star Trek: Bridge Crew. This was announced just prior to E3 2016, with a trailer featuring Star Trek characters old and new playing the title using Oculus Touch. Another multiplayer, players have to work as a team to fly the U.S.S. Aegis into uncharted space. Star Trek: Bridge Crew recently had a launch delay, it’ll be arriving for Oculus Touch, PlayStation VR and HTC Vive on 14th, March 2016.
