Watch a massive VR space battle in the latest Eve Valkyrie trailer

New, 25 comments

Virtual reality headsets like the Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus are almost here, but they still need games: and the upcoming Eve Valkyrie is shaping up to be one of the platform's first blockbuster hits. The spaceship sim is a spinoff of the massively multiplayer universe Eve Online, and the latest trailer, revealed at Eve's fanfest event in Iceland, shows just how intense piloting a ship in VR can be. Eve's infamously huge space battles look a whole lot different from the cockpit of a fighter — though there's no word yet on when you'll be able to strap a virtual spaceship to your face. The game is due to hit both the Rift and Morpheus sometime in the future.
