Those who pre-order the Oculus Rift will get space shooter Eve: Valkyrie for free.
All Rift pre-orders will be bundled with CCP’s space combat game. The title is debuting on Oculus Rift, before coming to PlayStation VR at a later point.
Of course, that’s not all that will be coming with the Oculus Rift on Day One – every headset is also coming with an Xbox One controller.
EVE: Valkyrie is being co-published by Oculus and has a cast that includes Battlestar Galactica alumnus Katee Sackhoff, who played Kara ‘Starbuck’ Thrace in the critically acclaimed drama.
EVE: Valkyrie is one of the most anticipated virtual reality games, and one of the first true VR games to go into development,” Oculus founder Palmer Luckey said.
It perfectly captures the promise of immersive gaming, shooting you into a sci-fi adventure as you pilot a spaceship in search of combat. Battling your friends (and enemies) in multiplayer space dogfights is the ultimate VR thrill, and we’re excited to partner with CCP to bring this experience to Rift owners everywhere."
