EVE: Valkyrie is a multiplayer dogfighting shooter game set in the EVE Online universe that is designed to use virtual reality headset technology. Originally launched for Microsoft Windows for use with the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, CCP Games has announced they plan to enable cross-platform play between the three major VR systems: the Oculus Rift, the HTC Vive, and the PlayStation VR. Released in March 2016, the game has two game mode options: Chronicles can be played in single player, while Combat allows eight by eight combat PvP (player versus player) missions. Reviews generally criticised the limited plot and limitations of single player mode, although the described "arcade experience" was praised for having intuitive controls and "exhilarating" dogfighting features, with PC Powerplay dubbing it "arguably the best VR experience currently available for the [Oculus Rift] platform." == Development == During development, it was called EVE-VR while still a tech demo. EVE: Valkyrie was initially a demo put together by several CCP developers as a side project in their free time, with the demo then shown at EVE Fanfest in late April 2013. While the game was undergoing early development in October 2013, CCP asserted they were "thinking about" adding a single-player campaign to EVE: Valkyrie. At the time, the demo was only multiplayer and focused largely on dogfighting.
