EVE Online News – Valkyrie Coming to PS4 & to Utilize New VR Headset

During this week's GDC, Sony revealed "Project Morpheus", the prototype virtual reality headset that will be compatible with the PlayStation 4. Part of the announcement included the news that EVE: Valkyrie is on the short list of games that will utilize the headset's capabilities from launch.

Our current prototype for Project Morpheus features a head mounted display with 1080p resolution and a 90 degree field of view. Accelerometer and gyroscope sensors built into the head mounted unit as well as PlayStation Camera accurately tracks head orientation and movement, so as your head rotates, the image of the virtual world rotates intuitively in real-time. Project Morpheus also features our new 3D audio technology that re-creates stereoscopic sounds in all directions and changes in real-time depending on your head orientation. In addition to PlayStation Camera, Project Morpheus works with DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller and PlayStation Move to deliver an easy-to-use, plug-and-play VR experience.

Read more about the headset on the Playstation blog.
