It was once just a demo. Then a full-blown game. Now EVE Valkyrie is the first title to be co-published by Oculus Rift themselves, making it an exclusive, and I couldn’t be happier.
Oculus made the announcement today, saying that the game is now a joint deal between EVE creators CCP and Oculus’ own internal team.
A space combat game based in the EVE Online universe, Valkyrie is what I dreamed the future of video games would look like when I was stuck playing X-Wing and Wing Commander on a 486 computer with a bad CRT monitor. The speed, the visuals, but most importantly the immersion. It’s been a long wait – around 20 years – but hey, looks like we’re almost there, space combat fans.
It’s weird to see that dream coming true – at least on paper, I haven’t played it – but also exciting.
