UBISOFT® ANNOUNCES U.S.S.
ENTERPRISE ORIGINAL BRIDGE FOR VIRTUAL REALITY GAME STAR TREKTM: BRIDGE CREW
London, uk – February 10th,
2017 – Today, Ubisoft® announced that the bridge of the legendary U.S.S. Enterprise
from Star Trek: The Original Series will be playable in Star Trek™: Bridge Crew, the new virtual reality
game where players explore space as a member of Starfleet. Under license by CBS Consumer Products, Star Trek: Bridge Crew
will be available on PlayStation®VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. In addition to the announcement of the original series
bridge aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701, the new launch date on all platforms will be May 30th, 2017.
Developed by Red Storm Entertainment, a Ubisoft Studio, Star Trek fans will be able to live out their Star
Trek dreams as a member of the bridge crew aboard the famed U.S.S. Enterprise and the U.S.S. Aegis,
a brand new ship created for Star Trek: Bridge Crew. Playable co-operatively with a crew of up to four, or solo playing
as the Captain, players will be immersed into the Star Trek universe as they command a Starfleet vessel and complete
missions that will determine the fate of their ship and crew. The original U.S.S. Enterprise bridge will be
playable in the Ongoing Voyages mode, which generates randomised missions for countless hours of solo and co-op adventure.
“We felt it was important to include a part of classic Star Trek with this game, especially during
Star Trek’s 50th anniversary,” said David Votypka, Senior Creative Director at Red Storm Entertainment.
“The original U.S.S. Enterprise is such an iconic part of the franchise - it’s the ship that started
it all. The adventures and relationships that took place on the ship are a special part of Star Trek history,
so we were determined to give players the opportunity to create their own adventures and stories on this classic ship.
We’re very excited to see player reactions when they step onto the U.S.S. Enterprise original bridge for the
first time, and experience Star Trek: Bridge Crew in a whole new way. We’re also appreciative of players’
patience as we finalise work on the game to bring the Star Trek experience we envisioned to life.”
Star Trek: Bridge Crew marks the most recent project in virtual reality for Ubisoft, which believes in the strong
potential of VR to redefine social gaming with a unique sense of reality. Ubisoft recently released the games Werewolves Within™
and Eagle Flight™, and announced a VR partnership with the film company SpectreVision.

02/09/2017 - Bomb Defense on Steam Greenlight
4:38 pm pst
Bomb Defense on Steam
Bomb Defense is
a unique tower defense/puzzle game featuring explosions, physics and rag doll effects.
You get a limited amount
of money to buy traps, bombs, turrets and walls and place them in clever positions to defend against enemies trying to harm
your curious little kitten Mimi who, for some reason, keeps wandering into an array of sinister dungeons and graveyards.
It’s an open-ended game with many ways to win, and even more ways that she can die. Depending on your level
of neglect, a Cyclops may clobber her with a mace, or perhaps she’ll become a Goblin’s breakfast!
best score will be ranked against other players’ best score for each level. So you aren’t just playing alone;
and if your score is good enough you’ll earn a fancy medal and your score might then be the coveted score that other
geniuses scramble to beat.
While similar to tower defense games, this game requires a lot more thinking and
certain puzzle-solving skills to keep your pesky little cat alive. A true test of your IQ if played with a high difficulty
setting. Or a fun strategy game with lower difficulty settings.
Being developed for Windows, Mac, Linux.
Other platforms later.
