CCP Games has revealed that its upcoming virtual reality (VR) exclusive title EVE: Valkyrie is to be playable on the latest versions of both of its confirmed platforms at this week’s EVE Fanfest event in Reykjavik, Iceland. That includes the second developer kit (DK2) for the Oculus Rift PC headset and the Project Morpheus PlayStation 4 headset. However while attendees will be free to play the title on Oculus VR’s headset as they please, only a ‘limited audience’ with get to experience it on Project Morpheus.
CCP Games revealed as much at its keynote speech for the title. The developer will issue raffle tickets to attendees, with the draw taking place at 1:30 GMT. Those that are successful will get to use the PlayStation 4 headset. Despite the limited option, this marks one of the first public displays for both the DK2 and Project Morpheus. Both devices were revealed at this year’s Game Developers Conference where attendees were given the chance to try them out on the show floor. While Oculus Rift makers Oculus VR have showcased the DK2 at a few other events since that time, Project Morpheus has been kept under wraps at SCE for the most part.
EVE Fanfest runs from 1st – 3rd May 2014 and has packed plenty of events for EVE: Valkyrie within. The title is a space dog fighting experience in which players sit in the cockpit of a Valkyrie ship and square off against other teams, using the headset’s head-tracking technology for missile locking among other features.
VRFocus is at EVE Fanfest and will be bringing you all the latest on EVE: Valkyrie from the event, including interviews and hands-on with the latest build.
