EVR, a 6v6 space dogfighting game set in the EVE universe and built for Oculus Rift, has been announced by CCP.

According to PCgameN, a group at CCP has been working on the title in their spare time for just seven weeks now, and Fanfest attendees were able to try it out.

The game is running in Unity and features art assets from EVE Online, and the report notes it may not be widely available outside of the Fanfest event.

In it, are part of a squad of fighters for either the Amarr or the Minmatar which have battleships stationed in an asteroid field. Players have three minutes of flight time which PCgameN found more than ample.

One of the cooler features mentioned in the preview, is that when you turn your head, your target finder moves with you so it’s easier to lock onto a target instead of using the controller.

It sounds rather cool, yet vomit inducing to me. I can’t play VR games without my stomach acting up.
