'EVE Online', meet Oculus Rift
Now, I love me some TIE Fighter, but I must admit, sailing back and forth across the blank of space to mine asteroids would be an absolute bore unless you were able to share a ship with a party. What CCP showed off at the ongoing EVE Fan Fest in Reykjavik, Iceland was merely a primitive demo, but it's a mere taste of what they have in store for us in the coming years. Playing with an Xbox 360 controller, players are pulling off space sorties against enemy pilots. It's arcade-y, built in Unity and not hooked directly to Tranquilty – EVE Online's massive server shard – but who knows? Maybe EVE Online will get steered in a whole new direction with some virtual reality love.
