Eagle Flight launches today for Rift; Next month for PSVR

Eagle Flight, is now available on Oculus Rift, while it will also be available on PlayStation VR from November 8th and HTC Vive from December 20th.

Developed by FunHouse, a division of Ubisoft Montreal, Eagle Flight is set 50 years after humans have disappeared from Earth, where wildlife and nature have taken over Paris. The game lets players explore the city from an entirely new point-of-view, as a bird of prey. As an eagle, players glide past historic landmarks and weave through the narrow streets and secret passages. In single-player mode players refine their flying skills and learn new tricks by competing in challenges, and in multiplayer they can face-off in capture-the-prey dogfights for up to three vs three players.

Eagle Flight, developed specifically for VR, emphasises accessibility and comfort. According to the developer, the game features a breakthrough in VR control technology that provides players with natural and precise movement controls. With this breakthrough players can comfortably hone their flying skills in order to achieve aerial manoeuvres, and experience the true sensation of flight.

“At Ubisoft we care deeply about innovation and new technology, so we’re excited to release Eagle Flight, our first Virtual Reality game,” said Patrick Plourde, VP of FunHouse. “Eagle Flight is a fantastic game for newcomers to VR and experienced players alike. The game is very intuitive, so novice players can simply boot up the game and fly at their own pace with ease. For more seasoned players looking for a more intense experience, they can jump into the single player challenges or into a multiplayer match where they will have to expertly navigate the streets, skies and underground of Paris as they try to capture their prey and defeat their opponents.”

Eagle Flight marks the first virtual reality game launch for Ubisoft, who are also working on Werewolves Within, Star Trek: Bridge Crew and a VR partnership with the film company, SpectreVision.

This looks good and shows potential for a Superman game, and may get to fly through Italy and straighten out the leaning tower of Pisa! Star Trek Bridge Crew is my main VR game to get.
