Earlier in the week, VRFocus took a look ahead to PAX Prime 2014, which runs on 29th – 31st August. The show, which takes place in Seattle, Washington, is set to feature a range of virtual reality (VR) compatible titles, including the likes of anticipated indie experiences such as Darknet. We also speculated that CCP Games’ EVE: Valkyrie would also be appearing at the show. Now it’s been confirmed that the title will make an appearance.
EVE: Valkyrie will be playable at the Oculus VR booth, using the Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD). This isn’t too surprising, given that the title has proved to be something of a mainstay at booths for both Oculus VR and Sony Computer Entertainment’s (SCE) Project Morpheus on PlayStation 4. It’s proven to be the ideal showcase for VR technology, offering an immersive cockpit view as players take part in space battles.
EVE: Valkyrie is hoping to arrive with both the Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus, though neither device has yet received a release date. The title is being developed using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4. VRFocus will continue to follow both the title and the headsets moving forward, reporting back with any further updates.
