Set your Vives to stun! With the launch of Ubisoft’s Star Trek: Bridge Crew today, we’ve got new bundles that will help you get VR-ready and explore the final frontier.

Starting today each purchase of the HTC Vive will include Star Trek: Bridge Crew as well. In addition, Vive paired with certain graphics cards and PCs will also net special promotional pricing.

Developed specifically for VR, Star Trek: Bridge Crew puts you and your friends in the heart of a starship, where-as officers of the Federation – every action and decision you make together will determine the fate of your ship and your crew.

“Star Trek has always pushed the boundaries of the imagination and the concept of virtual worlds,” said Daniel O’Brien, GM of US, HTC Vive. “Ubisoft and Red Storm have made a huge commitment to bring AAA gaming to virtual reality and the Vive. We couldn’t be more excited to bundle copies of Star Trek: Bridge Crew with Vive purchases to celebrate the launch, and at the same time offer different PC bundles to bring more people into the experience.”

Star Trek: Bridge Crew features single player and up to four player online co-op multiplayer where the Federation dispatches you and your crew to command the new vessel U.S.S. Aegis as part of a critical initiative. With Vive, gamers can use a single set of Lighthouse base stations to enable local multi-player for an entire Bridge Crew.

To expedite your journey to explore uncharted territory, Star Trek: Bridge Crew will be bundled with hardware and graphics cards specials:

Bundle the Vive and a member of the MSI Radeon RX 580 family of graphics cards for a free copy of the game. This bundle will be sold at Amazon , Newegg , Fry’s Electronics and Micro Center.

Build your own Cyberpower PC and bundle with Vive and also receive a free copy of the game. Qualifying purchases from CyberPowerPC must include:

  • Intel® Core™ i7-6800K, i7-6850K, i7-6900K or i7-6950X Extreme Edition on the Intel® X99 chipset
  • AMD GPU RX580 and above or NVIDIA GPU GeForce GTX 1060 and above
  • HTC Vive VR system

In addition, all Vive purchases include everything you need for room-scale VR out of a single box, including two motion controllers and two Lighthouse base stations. In addition to Bridge Crew, new Vive purchasers will also receive Everest VR, Richie’s Plank Experience, and one free month of Viveport Subscription.

We’ll see you in the final frontier.

About This Hardware

VIVE is a first-of-its-kind virtual reality platform developed by HTC and Valve for total immersion in virtual worlds. Using a headset and wireless controllers in each hand, you can now explore and interact with VR experiences, apps and games that blur the line between imagination and reality.

Breathtaking visual experiences are provided by a headset that features a 110° field of view and 32 sensors for precise tracking for total immersion. The 2160 x 1200 resolution and 90 Hz refresh rate deliver detailed graphics and lifelike motion for smooth gameplay and realistic movement. Fluid interaction is provided by two wireless controllers, each with HD haptic feedback, dual-stage triggers, and multi-function trackpads. Each controller features 24 sensors for 360° one-to-one tracking that mirrors hand movements. Room-scale motion tracking is enabled by two base stations that sync wirelessly avoiding the need for additional cords.

Vive’s built-in convenience and safety features are seamlessly integrated for an uninterrupted experience. The Chaperone guidance system alerts you if you approach the boundaries of the play space, while a front-facing camera blends physical elements into the virtual world. These features, working in concert, allow Vive to transport users to worlds that are truly beyond the imagination. Discover Vive today, and see for yourself: THIS IS REAL.

Key features:
  • SteamVR Powered – Enjoy over 1500 games for SteamVR, plus everything you love about Steam, including new releases, automatic game updates and millions of your closest friends.
  • Fully immersive – Precise, 360-degree controller and headset tracking, realistic graphics, directional audio and HD haptic feedback mean realistic movement and actions in the virtual world. It doesn’t get more first-person than this.
  • Up to 15’ x 15’ room-scale stage to explore – Teleport around boundless virtual worlds sitting at your desk, or create a dedicated room-scale play area where you can physically walk around. SteamVR™ Tracking provides the best experience possible, so play the way that works for you – seated, standing or room-scale.
  • Play safer – The Chaperone system warns you about the boundaries of your play area, so you stay immersed in VR without worrying about the real-world. The front-facing camera also gives you a glimpse of the real-world – so you can sit down, grab a drink or carry on a conversation without taking off the headset.
  • Wireless controllers – two wireless, rechargeable controllers with dual stage triggers, trackpad and HD haptic feedback.
  • Phone Services – Answer incoming calls, check your text messages and view calendar event reminders as you play.
