As well as being built from the ground up for VR, it is also designed to play with friends. The game (whilst can be played with AI) is best played with a group of friends. Form a crew of four to serve in the roles of Captain, Helm, Tactical and Engineer and complete a range of tasks in the universe.

It’s so immersive you may even forget you got a mission to complete! The game isn’t for those looking for hard hitting, fast paced action though. It’s designed to be played sat down at a slow pace, it’s a thinkers game. Teamwork and great communication is required to make the best out of Star Trek Bridge Crew. Each player and their decisions in game are vital to the success as a team within each mission.

Non VR Mode

However, recently, the game has been updated to allow users to play this incredible game without the use of the PSVR. However, we do advise those that do have a PSVR headset to use it!
