Ubisoft VR Experiences Go Cross-Platform

Ubisoft announced yesterday that all their VR experiences will have cross-platform multiplayer. Eagle Flight, Werewolves Within, and Star Trek: Bridge Crew players will be able to join each other across PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive. 

This multiplayer component for Eagle Flight was updated today, while the other two games will have the feature at launch. The wait won't be too long, though, as Werewolves Within comes out on December 6, while Star Trek: Bridge Crew is slated for March 14.

Our Take
System divides have plagued players for years, forcing friends to pick a side if they wanted to play together. It's good to see Ubisoft shedding this ridiculous notion and all I can hope is that it carries over to their other franchises.
