It's fairly obvious to interested observers that EVE: Valkyrie
is intimately tied to the Oculus Rift
. Its biggest selling point is creating that feel of really piloting a nimble little starfighter yourself, after all. And it looks like that's obvious to the team at Oculus
as well, as the studio behind the VR headset has announced it will be co-publishing EVE: Valkyrie
along with CCP Games
The net result is that Valkyrie
will be an exclusive launch title for the Oculus Rift, making it one of the first AAA titles developed specifically for the device. Oculus is also reaching out to other development studios interested in potentially introducing more titles designed with the VR experience in mind. While there are still no firm details regarding launch dates for the title, expect to see more information
about it as the headset moves toward completion.
