Well, well, well... Oculus VR has secured itself a major Oculus Rift exclusive title: EVE: Valkyrie. EVE: Valkyrie started off as an Oculus Rift tech demo built by a small team over at CCP, but turned into a full blown space VR experience.

It took multiple awards at E3 2013, and is now being developed by CCP's Newcastle, UK-based studio. CCP CEO, Hilmar Veigar P├ętursson, said during his DICE 2014 talk: "The core purpose of CCP is to make virtual worlds more meaningful than real life". He expressed how excited the team at CCP is over Oculus Rift, too.

In regards to the implementation of Oculus Rift, the CCP CEO said: "It is much easier for people to accept as reality. It's a much shorter leap of faith to really accept that we really have the ability to create virtual worlds more meaningful than real life". I'm just excited to see Oculus racking up a serious game for the Rift when it launches, hopefully later this year.
