Ready to dive into the next life? Developer CCP Games has rolled out the launch trailer for hotly-anticipated dogfighting simulator EVE: Valkyrie, which can now be picked up on Oculus Rift.
Held up as an early poster child to this new generation of virtual reality, Valkyrie takes place in the sprawling universe of genre-defining MMO EVE Online – but Dust 514 this is not. In a post outlining the game’s launch plans, CCP touched base on creating the “best competitive multiplayer game on the VR platform.”
It’s not just that you can see the world through someone else’s eyes – it’s that you can see other worlds through your own eyes. You are there. In an age where we are always doing multiple things at once this is pure and total immersion. There is nothing else. You are the Valkyrie pilot. All that matters is the guy in front of you – and the guy behind you.
CCP’s support is set to continue long after release, too, with the studio publishing a Trello board detailing some of the new content and community events headed to EVE: Valkyrie in the weeks and months to come.
EVE: Valkyrie launched in tandem with Oculus Rift earlier this week, and those who pre-ordered the VR device will be entitled to the Valkyrie Founder’s Pack. It’ll also be available to pick up on HTC Vive and Sony’s PlayStation VR later in 2016.
