In conjunction with the PlayStation VR launch today, CCP is touting the availability of EVE Valkyrie and EVE Gunjack as launch titles for the platform, two of the 50 games expected to be available for the system before the end of the year.
Valkyrie launched for the Oculus Rift back in March, while Gunjack already runs on just about every VR-capable toy out there. In fact, earlier this month, the company announced that Gunjack’s sequel — Gunjack 2: End of Shift — will be an exclusive Google Daydream title coming in November.
CCP has invested heavily into virtual reality with its stable of games, telling convention-goers last month that it’ll have sunk $30 million into VR games by the end of 2016, that it’s hoping to break even in a few months, and that it believes VR will pick up in 2018 and 2019. Other industry vets, like John Carmack, have argued the VR software industry is “coasting on novelty.”
The PSVR retails for $399 US. Anyone rushing out to pick one up?
