EVE: Valkyrie (2016), the space dogfighter originally developed by CCP Games, just opened up its free weekend, which gives anyone with an Oculus Rift an all-access pass to play for the next few days.
The free weekend is already in effect, and will continue until February 19th at 12:00 AM PST (local time here).
The game, which recently passed hands to Sumo Digital due to CCP shelving its VR-producing branches back in October last year, has been an early VR stalwart since we first saw it in 2014 when it carried the moniker EVE-VR. The game has since seen a number of substantial updates which saw several maps and game mode types added, and eventually resulted in the refocusing of the game’s ships to be more in line with first-person shooters, offering several distinct classes to anyone regardless of playtime or in-game achievement.
EVE: Valkyrie also supports crossplay for all of its supported platforms which include HTC Vive (via Steam) and PSVR, and more recently players on PC and PS4. Console and PC support came alongside the game’s largest and most recent update Warzone, which aimed to revitalize the online multiplayer with the promise of more players.
