Well, this is cool

EVE Valkyrie has been officially announced at gamescom, as what started as an impressive tech demo has transformed into a full-fledged game. Originally code-named "EVE-VR", the Oculus Rift-powered title puts players in the cockpits of space vehicles as they duke it out with other virtual dogfighters.

Not much is known yet about EVE Valkyrie other than it's expecting a 2014 release date, and that it's being developed by CCP's Newcastle studio in the United Kingdom. When asked by IGN whether there would be any single-player aspects, CCP dodged with an uninformative "we're not ready to talk about that yet."

Hopefully more news comes out of gamescom about Valkyrie. It looks like one of the most promising uses of virtual reality that could be offered to an already huge and established fanbase.
