Valkyrie Is Go! ...in 2014

Yes, you'll look this stupid (image from theverge.com)
Finally CCP have seen the light and are releasing EVR as Valkyrie for use, hopefully not exclusively, with the Oculus Rift!

In news that shocked few considering the rapt reviews of the EVR tech demo, and the continued downward plunge of DUST514, CCP are going to develop and release Valkyrie in 2014.

So potentially more than a year away from now.

My hope is the game will not be limited to only owners of the headset, although obviously the Oculus Rift will provide the best experience, providing you don't become motion sick.

My fear is the game will be too much of a "one trick pony", not that this has harmed World of Tanks, War Thunder and others at all.

It will be very interesting to see how CCP integrates Valkyrie into the Eve Online universe, either as a content changing entity or just using the IP.

Watch this space for more info.

Well not this space but a future posts space...obviously.
