You can currently go the your Bridge, using the map options. However, you cannot do anything on the bridge as of yet, which does make the commercial seem misleading. Hopefully it will be added to the game at some point in the near future however, don't get your hopes up.
I've heard in interviews the Dev's talking about wanting to do more with the bridge feature. It is not something they were planning on having ready for launch, but just happened to get the basics done early. I'm not sure exactly what all will be done, but as of now you can just access your bridge and walk around. (some button by your mini-map radar)
the way i look at it... Im sitting in My chair... giving the orders to do all the stuff.. I am the captian,, Im giving orders... my crew is doing what i say..
Just cause i dont see an animated version of myself doesnt mean im doing it any less..
that doesnt mean i dont want co-op bridge play with freinds on a ship... Im just saying.. what the commerical says you do... You pretty much do.
You ARE captian of a ship and you do give all those orders..
Seriously though.. 90% of game commericals out there are friggin animated trailers.. and not even game play footage.. atleast this commercial uses basically all ingame footage outside of the captain in the chair yelling fire.. (but i get to do that inreal life !)
I supose they could of used a picture of a real person sitting in the chair, But im sure that was a creative decision. To me it's not misleading.. But it does look neat. the way they did it.
