Release dates for Ubisoft’s VR titles – Eagle Flight, Star Trek: Bridge Crew and Werewolves Within

Ubisoft VR release dates

Ubisoft are doing Gamescom in bursts this go round. Yesterday they released twenty trailers at once, because why not, and today is a release date bonanza. Their first batch of VR games will be getting public releases October, November and December, depending on game and platform. These are the Eagle Flight bird-simulator, the nerd-happiness-maker Star Trek: Bridge Crew and social game Werewolves Within.

We talked to one of the Oculus founders about turning around Oculus Rift’s launch.

Strap in, here’s the info:

  • Eagle Flight
    • Oculus Rift – October 18
    • PSVR – November 8
    • HTC Vive – December 20
  • Star Trek: Bridge Crew
    • All platforms – November 29
  • Werewolves Within
    • All platforms – December 6

So if you’re VR-laden, you’re going to have a busy December. Of these three, the one I haven’t seen much of is Werewolves Within, which brings the popular social game Werewolf into VR. It essentially involves a group of people acting as an easily misinformed lynch mob, trying to work out which of their number are the werewolves, while the werewolves try to get everyone else killed. I will have you know I was a champion at it in my teenage drama group. Here’s a trailer:

Any of these take your fancy, or seem good enough to be worth picking up a VR machine for? If you’re less keen, here’s Phil’s piece on exactly why VR will fail.
