It's co-op, so one player is the captain, one tactical, one helm, one engineering, you use VR hand controllers to interact with those LCARS panels... and. You. Fly. The. Freaking. Ship.

(Really charming trailer, too, with some of the Star Trek cast playing the game, and looking genuinely excited not just I'm-being-paid-to-look-excited.)

I saw that on Reddit yesterday and, oh man, it looks ace.

Obviously, the local multiplayer is impractical for most though. I wonder what netplay would be like.

It's VR, by definition I don't care about local multiplayer :) I see no reason netplay won't work.

This will be very popular in our IT dept when it comes out!

Yeah, that looks fucking incredible. Not so sure about the cost to play it, though :)

Do the headsets have built-in microphones?

I'm not convinced "open fire" is going to be the answer to everything.

But only if you don't open fire fast enough.

We had a GTA game once, the two-on-two mode where each pair consists of a driver (in a 60s muscle car, racing the other driver) and a blocker (in a huge armoured truck, trying to stop the other driver and protect their own driver.) It was Grim... (driver) and Cras vs me (driver) and Curio. Grim... was completely irate, screaming at Cras, demanding he be in two places at once, I was laughing so hard I forgot how to breath, tears running down my face. It was great.

Oh shit, son. This suddenly became tempting, on the grounds that I have lots of PSVR people to play with and don't have to wait around for hours for the only other Rift owner in the UK to logon ;)

Sony opened up cross platform play a while back, but I can't think of a single game that supported it until now. Makes obvious sense for a VR co-op game though, given how small even the combined install base is.

I am totally sold on VR presence as an enabler for co-op play. Looking over and seeing Cras pushing buttons (or giving me the finger), and hearing Grim...'s voice barking orders from the captain's chair behind me, worked perfectly.

You should get it and come play with the Yes! Chef!s

warning gaming with the Yes! Chef!s contains 350% of your RDA of petty squabbling and toilet humour

Oh yeah, it makes all the sense in the world; I'm just still at the point of being pleasantly surprised when companies actually implement this sort of positively non-partisan stuff.

In a shock to us all, we're actually getting quite competent at this.

We just managed a stealth mission, for God's sake.

It's not an especially deep game nor a long one, which I think is a point worth stressing. I'm guessing VR's install base is still too small to justify anyone spending the money needed for longer games. Also, we also completely failed two missions last night -- if you fuck up your strategy, the game is going to happily hand your ass to you.

Having said that, we're five or six hours in and we're only good at our own roles right now. We've been sticking to one bridge position each. I have no idea what helm or captain even do, and I'm worse at being engineering than Jacket. If all I get from this is 20 hours of amazing co-op play for £40, I'm down with that.

Also the next campaign mission (four of five, they take 20-30 minutes each) has a description which makes it sound like the difficulty might be about to ramp up.

Oh, and we haven't had a go at flying the TOS Enterprise yet, other than to start it up and laugh and laugh at how difficult it looks to pilot. Instead of elegant touchscreens, you have dozens of abstract, unlabelled, randomly coloured buttons!

Note that getting the cross-platform multiplayer going will involve figuring out the uPlay based matchmaking, so we're gonna have to boldly go where no man has gone before.
