EVE: Valkyrie to be an Oculus Rift-exclusive launch title

EVE: Valkyrie

By on February 7, 2014 at 9:02 am

Big news in the world of the Oculus Rift today, with the company announcing that EVE: Valkyrie — the totally wicked-looking space dogfighting game set in the EVE universe — will launch as an Oculus Rift exclusive title when the hardware finally releases.

Oculus are also releasing their latency tester hardware, including the firmware, the board layout, documentation, and STL’s of a 3D-printable enclosure, as an open source project. This means that anybody is free to download all the information and start to tear it apart and improve it, or even sell their creations. Oculus hope that this transparency will “ultimately accelerate and improve virtual reality technology for everyone.”

Take a look at the launch trailer for Valkyrie below, or look at this blog post on the Oculus site for more info.

Looks Tasty!
Hopefully will be a good filler while we wait for Star Citizen!

Now all we need is a release date for the consumer version of the Oculus so we can pre-order! (yes I know pre-order is a bad word these days…)

 

looks like my 6950s could be getting replaced sometime this year

 

Day one purchase without a doubt!

 

Not quite day 1 release for me…need Oculus Rift first don’t I chaps? Might take a little to scrape up the pennies for one of those first. (yes I want one)

 

vcatkiller,

you make it sound like its a bit taboo to want one, i cant wait for the 1080p version, porn/ gaming in full 3d; im not ashamed to admit im excited, and so are my pants!

 

spike4379,

Wasn’t quite the direction I was going with the post, now I reread…ewww… :D
