Oculus VR is doing quite well right now, all without having any consumer hardware on the market, and no sign of such a thing until at least the second half of 2014. This hasn't stopped game developers from jumping on board the truly next-generation of gaming.




CCP, the developer behind the huge title 'EVE Online' has just announced a multiplayer space combat spin-off dubbed EVE: Valkyrie. EVE: Valkyrie has been molded around a tech demo that CCP called EVR that saw EVE: Online ooze into the virtual reality goodness that is Oculus Rift. At the moment, details are skimp, and it's unknown if EVE: Valkyrie will work without Oculus Rift.


The developer decided to make EVE: Valkyrie thanks to the huge fan reaction to EVR, with CCP chief executive Hilmar Veigar Pétursson saying: "From the moment this year's Fanfest attendees first got their hands on EVE-VR, the question has been, "When can I have this? What started as a passion project by a small, incredibly talented group of CCP developers became one of the most highly anticipated games of the year, before we even announced it."


EVE: Valkyrie will reach PCs in 2014 and is under development at CCP's Newcastle-based studio.
