Boldly go in VR.
A new Star Trek VR game is coming in the form of Star Trek Discovery Away Mission, CBS recently announced.
Developed by Sandbox VR, CBS calls the title “the first Star Trek Holodeck VR experience based on Star Trek: Discovery.” It will launch later this year at Sandbox VR’s Hong Kong- and San Francisco-based locations, with “worldwide availability to follow by early 2020,” StarTrek.com reports.
Though the site suggests “worldwide” locations, only USA-based cities have been confirmed, including Los Angeles, New York, Austin, San Diego and Chicago.
“The Star Trek: Discovery Away Mission is a free-roam VR experience that warps you and your friends – the crew – aboard the U.S.S. Discovery where you’ll be guided by fan-favorite Sylvia Tilly (played by Mary Wiseman),” Sandbox VR said of its upcoming title.
“Gear up on an authentic ‘away mission’ with phasers and tricorders, explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations, and boldly go where no one has gone before.”
