CCP announced today that EVE: Valkyrie will support the PlayStation VR and the HTC Vive later this year.

CCP, the developers of EVE: Online, announced today on Twitter that their latest title EVE: Valkyrie will support the upcoming VR headsets, PlayStation VR and HTC Vive.

What is EVE: Valkyrie?

EVE: Valkyrie is a multiplayer dogfighting shooter, set in the EVE: Online universe. It is the launch title of Facebook's VR headset, the Oculus Rift. The player takes on the role of an elite space fighter pilot who is a member of a pirate faction.

The player has to fight against other pirate factions for wealth, supremacy, and notoriety. The game features single player PVE modes, skill-based character progression, ships upgrades, competitive social multiplayer action, and a deep story based on the EVE Universe.

The ultimate dogfighting experience

CCP is aiming to deliver the ultimate space dogfighting experience with EVE: Valkyrie. It uses the most technologically advanced video game technology along with VR to further enhance the experience.

If you were thinking of playing EVE: Valkyrie but were not looking to invest in the Oculus Rift, you soon will be able to. Playstation VR is due for release in October. A date for compatibility with EVE: Valkyrie for the HTC Vive is yet to be announced but estimated to be this year.
