CCP Games is currently working on a range of virtual reality (VR) projects. The popular developer had previously been thought to simply be creating EVE: Valkyrie, its anticipated multiplayer online combat title. Recently it’s been revealed that isn’t quite the case; CCP Games has announced VR Labs, a set of two teams working on VR experiments. The first team, located in Atlanta, Georgia, has three tech demos in the work. The second team, located in Shanghai, China is working on Project Nemesis.
Project Nemesis is running on Samsung’s smartphone-based head-mounted display (HMD), Gear VR and features players manning a turret on a huge ship. This is more than likely the Gear VR project that CCP Games CEO Hilmar Veigar teased as the 2015 Game Developers Conference (GDC) earlier in the month. CCP Games was quick to state that this experiment is simply that right now and CCP Shanghai won’t be announcing a new VR videogame at this point in time.
For now, EVE: Valkyrie remains CCP Games’ only confirmed VR videogame. The team has made this title a key part of VR’s showings at major events throughout the year. It’s currently due to arrive on the Oculus Rift HMD on PC and Project Morpheus on PlayStation 4. A release date for the title is yet to be revealed.
VRFocus will continue to follow CCP Games’ work in VR, reporting back with the latest updates.
