Oculus to co-publish EVE Valkyrie

Virtual reality specialist Oculus has announced its first official publishing partnership – EVE Valkyrie.

The former demo-turned-game is a space combat title set in the EVE universe. Think of an X-Wing simulator in a virtual reality machine and you’re on the right track.

The CCP title has now been confirmed as an Oculus Rift launch title and is described as one of the first AAA games designed exclusively for the Rift”.

We strongly believe the best VR experiences are going to be the ones built from the ground up for VR, and we’ve kept that in mind whilst developing Valkyrie,” a dev team statement said.

We wanted people to really feel like they were there – to sense the vastness of space, feel the confined area of the cockpit and get that adrenaline rush as you see an exploding fighter whizz past your head.

In a very short amount of time this passion project became a full fledged CCP project which we’re now working on in Newcastle. It’s hard to believe how far we’ve come in a year.”
