Oculus VR Is Co-Publishing EVE: Valkyrie With CCP
Oculus VR, the crazy kids behind that virtual reality headset everyone’s been talking about, is getting into the game publishing business.
From the Oculus VR blog:
“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.
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!”
– CCP EVE Valkyrie team members Robert Clarke, Programmer, and Sigurður Gunnarsson, Senior Programmer
Oculus says they’ll be publishing other games, too, and we’re expecting any included works to be exclusive to the Oculus Rift, or very much favor using the company’s VR hardware.
