Today, Ubisoft announced that its first virtual reality game, Eagle Flight, is now available on Oculus Rift. Eagle Flight will also be available on PlayStation VR beginning 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 one of the most visited cities on the planet 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 heart-pounding capture-the-prey dogfights for up to three vs three players.
Eagle Flight, developed specifically for VR, 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 remarkable aerial maneuvers, and experience the true sensation of flight.
