Sky News has featured the Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) headset during its Sky News Sunrise segment this morning, 7th March 2014, running CCP Games’ EVE: Valkyrie. Presenter Stephen Dixon tested the headset out live, playing the dog-fighting space simulator ahead of its fan showcase event in London this evening.
As shown in the video above, Dixon played roughly 5 minutes of the title and was clearly very impressed with what he experienced. EVE: Valkyrie puts players inside the cockpit of a space ship from the EVE franchise and pits them in multiplayer battles against opponents.
CCP will be showing off EVE: Valkyrie to fans at an event in London tonight. Starting at 6pm at the Goodman’s Field pub near the Tower of London. A number of developers on the title will be on hand, including Lead Designer CCP Duchess. VRFocus will be bring a full preview of the title in the near future as well as additional coverage.
