EVE: Valkyrie might have started life as an Oculus Rift tech demo, but this month the space-shooter will arrive on Steam for HTC Vive owners. The exact release date is coming "soon," according to developer CCP Games. "We've also got some big celebrations planned for that weekend; all pilots on all platforms are invited," the blog post teases. Oh, and there's an announcement of some kind coming during the PlayStation Experience keynote this December 4th. Intriguing.

Valkyrie already supports dogfights between PlayStation VR and Oculus Rift owners, so it's not a huge surprise that the Vive version will connect to the same servers. But it's good to see an early Oculus exclusive fully embracing cross-platform play. Maybe Rocket League will come next.
