EVE: Valkyrie Brings Virtual Reality in 2014

Ever wonder what it would be like to hop into the cockpit of a spaceship and dogfight your way across the cosmos able to look every which way without using a controller? EVE: Valkyrie from CCP will let you do just that.

 

EVE: Valkyrie began as a passion project between a small group of friends within EVE Online developer CCP. Using the Oculus Rift, a set of virtual reality goggles that have yet to hit the market, the team created a basic multiplayer game pitting two players against each other in a virtual space. They showed it off at the MMO's Fanfest event to give dedicated EVE players a chance to feel what it would be like to pilot space fighters into combat. The higher-ups in the company caught wind of the project and were so impressed by the game and the reaction from fans that they green lit a fully-fledged release title.

 

 

So, in case you didn't quite catch it: We are getting a virtual reality space combat simulator (aka the thing everyone has wanted to do since seeing Star Wars for the first time). We. Get. To. Play. That.
