Ubisoft’s VR lineup will be hardware agnostic, cross-platform

Whether you have an Oculus Rift, a HTC Vive or a PSVR headset and tracking solution, you'll be able to play all of Ubisoft's upcoming VR games. Thanks to the launch of Oculus Touch in the next few days, all platforms will have motion controls and should play Ubisoft's new VR titles just fine.

Ubisoft has three virtual reality titles in the works right now: Eagle Flight, a game that has you play a bird flying around Paris; Star Trek: Bridge Crew, which looks like a digital version of the Space Cadets board game, and Werewolves Within, a virtual reality recreation of the Werewolves party game. Whichever you play though, you can play it on any hardware and better yet, play against anyone on any hardware.

That means if your friend has a Rift and you have a PSVR, you can play together and the same of any combination of the aforementioned headsets. It's not quite perfect just yet, with Eagle Flight VR not having HTC Vive functionality just yet, but it's coming on 20th December (thanks EG). The other games too aren't quite out yet, with Werewolves Within set to launch on 6th December and Star Trek: Bridge Crew in March 2017.

This move by Ubisoft should guarantee it has a larger audience for all of its games, as well as improve the player bases for each title, since they will have a larger pool of players to draw from.

KitGuru Says: I haven't done much in the way of multiplayer in virtual reality yet, but I could definitely see myself getting behind Werewolves and Bridge Crew. I love those sorts of cooperative, social games on the tabletop.
