CCP Games are very keen to ensure that their name becomes synonymous with high quality virtual reality (VR) experiences, of that there is no doubt. Following the lengthy gestation of EVE Valkyrie came the announcement of a number of new experiences at EVE Fanfest 2015 back in March. One such experiences, formally known as Project Nemesis, has today been re-revealed as Gunjack.
Gunjack is in development for Samsung Gear VR, the mobile VR collaboration with Oculus VR. Set in the EVE Online science-fiction universe and built exclusively for VR, Gunjack is a fast-paced arcade shooting experience in which the player has to fight through waves of enemy ships. VRFocus has been hands-on with Gunjack – then nothing more than a technical demonstration – stating: “Were it not to eventually see release there would be nothing more to say about it than a missed opportunity.”
Gunjack is set to be launched this autumn, alongside the suggested release of the ‘full consumer’ version of the Gear VR head-mounted display (HMD) itself. VRFocus will be meeting with CCP Games at Gamescom, Cologne, this week and will keep you updated with all the latest details on Gunjack.
