CCP, the creator of the EVE universe, has been scoring major points with its last few initiatives. First there was the creation of Dust 514, a free-to-play MMO that takes place in the EVE universe, and now CCP has teamed up with Oculus Rift to create EVR, a virtual reality dogfighting demo.
Less than a year ago the Oculus Rift’s prototype won a Best of E3 nomination. Since then, Pamela Horton, along with the rest of the gaming world, has been waiting patiently for the affordable (approximately $300) headset to hit shelves.
“It is seriously one of the funniest and most immersive games I’ve ever played, and it was only a three-minute demo! I cannot even begin to express how fun and immersive this game is. I sincerely hope the Rift consumer version comes out soon with EVR as a full-scale game. I have never had a demo draw me in so fast!”
Unfortunately, the game is still in the demo stage, but with Oculus Rift ready to release in the near future (they still haven’t announced a release date), we’re sure EVR won’t be too far behind.
