EVE: Gunjack launches on Samsung Gear VR

    
24

Not every inhabitant of the EVE Online universe is some fancy hotshot pilot with a billion-ISK warship under his or her seat. As CCP is out to prove with today’s release of Gunjack, there are more roles to the war than just spaceship captaining.

Gunjack is a VR title for the Samsung Galaxy Gear that places players in the role of a gun turret operator on a gigantic mining ship. By accessing the trigger-happy core that resides in all of us, the player will defend the ship from pirates and other bandits looking for an easy score.

This game is a “first step” for CCP into virtual reality and a self-proclaimed showcase title for the Galaxy Gear VR. It will be followed up by Valkyrie for the Oculus Rift in the future. You can check out Gunjack’s trailer after the break!

Why can’t my mining barges have their own turrets with gunners?

I feel like if CCP just made a Guns of Icarus style game set in the EVE Universe it would do pretty well, even if it ends up being lobby based.

Huxys Not to mention all the guns are managed by the pod pilot. There is no such thing as a gunjack.
