LOS ANGELES – Nov. 1, 2017 – IMAX Corporation (NYSE:IMAX) and Ubisoft® announced today that a new edition of Ubisoft’s critically acclaimed virtual reality game, Star Trek: Bridge Crew is launching for an exclusive run in IMAX VR centres worldwide. The new edition, called Star Trek: Bridge Crew Rescue at Perseph, has been re-designed and optimized for an interactive and multiplayer destination-based IMAX VR experience, which will let up to four players explore space together and complete missions as members of Starfleet.

Star Trek: Bridge Crew Rescue at Perseph immerses fans into the Star Trek universe as they assume the role of Starfleet officers and complete missions that will determine the fate of their ship and crew. Playable with up to four people per pod, Star Trek: Bridge Crew Rescue at Perseph puts players and their friends directly onto the bridge of a new starship, the U.S.S. Aegis, as they are dispatched to explore an uncharted sector of space.

“Star Trek: Bridge Crew Rescue at Perseph is a game-changing destination-based VR experience and one of the most significant pieces of content to come to IMAX VR centres,” said IMAX Corp. Chief Business Development Officer Robert D. Lister. “We’ve worked closely with Ubisoft to adapt this experience specifically for IMAX VR – offering audiences a truly engaging and interactive multiplayer experience you can’t get anywhere else.”

Created for destination-based VR, Star Trek: Bridge Crew Rescue at Perseph utilizes the powerful sense of social presence possible through virtual reality. Through hand-tracking and full-body avatars, including real-time lip-sync, players can live out their Star Trek fantasies as they operate the Starfleet ship as Captain, Engineer, Helm or Tactical. Each role is crucial to the success of the varied missions players face, and only by working together can the crew complete their objectives.

Star Trek: Bridge Crew Rescue at Perseph is now available at the IMAX VR centre in Los Angeles and will be coming soon to its centres in New York and Shanghai. The experience will also be available at its upcoming centres set to open in Toronto, the UK, and other locations worldwide in the coming months.
