Rift, Vive and PSVR players will all be able to fly, and die, together

Eve: Valkyrie was a launch title on the Oculus Rift, and CCP Games has since announced that the game is coming to the HTC Vive. We've known for a while that it will also be a launch title on the PlayStation VR. The company has just announced a new, and very exciting, update to its plans for the game.

"What we haven't said before, and will for the first time here on stage is cross-platform play." Eve: Valkyrie executive producer Owen O'Brien told the cheering crowd at Fanfest in Reykjavik, Iceland.

"Valkyrie from the outset was made as a VR game, and we want people irrespective of the platform they're playing on to be able to flight together and die together." he said. "So that's a big important thing for us. That everyone can play together and we break down the barriers."

So if you have a Vive, you'll be able to squad up with people on the PlayStation VR as well as the Oculus Rift. This is great news for people who were worried the player bases of the game would be limited to its own platform. Not to mention it will also help people on each platform find games with other players when the currently available VR hardware is shipping in limited amounts.
