The growing phenomenon of Virtual Reality gaming received another shot in the arm yesterday. With Ubisoft’s announcement that its VR titles will support cross-platform play between the PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, the Virtual Reality community is brought closer together.
Currently available from the french based developer is Eagle Flight. The game sees you take control of an eagle soaring over the deserted city of Paris, where humanity has left and nature has taken back control. You get to check out its sights and sounds from (literally) a birds-eye-view. Starting today, the title sees the introduction of cross-platform play between the PSVR and Oculus Rift, with the HTC Vive introduction scheduled for December 20th. This will let you team up with friends or foes, to race or explore, with or against other players on any of the three VR headsets.
Ubisoft also confirmed two future games as being cross-platform with their announcement. Werewolves Within and the impressive looking Star Trek: Bridge Crew will both support all three headsets and their respective machines. The Senior Creative Director at Red Storm, a Ubisoft studio, is quoted as saying; “Our games feature a strong multiplayer experience, so letting friends play together regardless of which headset they own will enhance the social nature of our games.”
Werewolves Within is set for release December 6th, with Star Trek: Bridge Crew coming later, March 14th, 2017. Both will support all three headsets upon launch.
