Ubisoft announced at Gamescom today that three new titles for VR will be coming to players this fall. All three games will be released on the major VR platforms: the PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive.

This new batch of titles includes games developed by Ubisoft’s secondary studios. Eagle Flight, for instance, is a simulation game created by FunHouse, a smaller branch of Ubisoft Montreal. In Eagle Flight, players will have the chance to soar over famous landmarks as an eagle. Players can compete against each other in “Capture the Prey” mode or simply enjoy the experience by themselves.

Red Storm Entertainment, a studio under the Ubisoft umbrella, is responsible for the other two titles — Star Trek: Bridge Crew and Werewolves Within. Star Trek: Bridge Crew puts players into the shoes of a member of the Federation aboard a Starfleet with a mission to explore. Players can choose to either fly solo as the captain or join a small crew. Werewolves Within, on the other hand, is a multiplayer game that requires between five to eight players. In Werewolves Within, the town of Gallowston is being plagued by werewolves, and it’s up to the villagers to figure out which of their number is the beast. Players will be randomly assigned the role of either werewolf or villager, making each gameplay experience unique.

Werewolves Within comes out on all three VR platforms on December 6th. Star Trek: Bridge Crew will be available starting November 29th. Eagle Flight will be released for Oculus Rift first on October 18th, then for PlayStation VR on November 8th and HTC Vive on December 20th.
