Fun House, the Ubisoft development arm founded to create more quirky titles, has revealed its first full game.

Led by Child of Light creative director Patrick Plourde, Fun House was created as a spin-off of Ubisoft Montreal earlier this year in August and initially revealed Eagle’s Flight, an air-bound tech demo for virtual reality headsets.

Now the game has been slightly renamed, becoming Eagle Flight, and bumped up to a full release set for launch next year.

Staying true to its moniker, the game allows players to become an eagle and fly over Paris’ landmarks half a century after humans have left the city.

Designed specifically for VR, Eagle Flight will be coming to Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR, and features a mysterious ‘Ubisoft-developed VR control technology breakthrough’ which the developer claims ‘greatly reduces chances of motion sickness’.
