Eve: Valkyrie is a multiplayer dog-fighting shooter game, whose action is set in the Eve Online universe. This game is using the virtual reality headset technology and it was already released for the Oculus Rift. The game is also expected to be released for the PlayStation VR in October 2016, but it’s not sure yet when exactly it will be released for the HTC Vive.
We remind you that this game was named EVE-VR during the development process and it was announced by CCP Games, the developer of the game, back on December 9, 2015. Back then, the developer has announced that the game will be released as a bundle with every pre-ordered Oculus Rift headset (a device that has been released on March 28, 2016).
This month, CCP Games has confirmed that EVE: Valkyrie will be also available for HTC Vive, later this year, but it didn’t give out an exact date or month when this will happen.
Well, we have some good news for the VR fans, as this game will support cross-platform on the mentioned headsets. With other words, you will be able to play Eve: Valkyrie with your friends even if they own a HTC Vive headset and you own a PlayStation VR one.
We agree that cross-platform gameplay should be expanded even more and, hopefully, the game’s and consoles’ developers will agree about this in the near future. Currently, we can clearly see that the new video games have more gamers on PlayStation 4, while the Xbox One is closely nearby.
However, if Microsoft and Sony will agree to bring cross-platform support to its Xbox One and PlayStation 4, we’re pretty sure that the game developers and these two console manufacturers will benefit from this. After all, we’re pretty sure that you have at least a few friends that own a different console than yours, which stops you from playing online games with them.
Unfortunately, CCP hasn’t announced when exactly the cross-platform will be released, but it is good to know that no matter which headset you will decide to purchase (between the three ones we’ve mentioned above), there will be a good amount of people who will play this awesome game.
