September 16, 2016 Written by Jason Dunning

A first-person arcade shooter built from the ground up for virtual reality, EVE: Gunjack from CCP Shanghai will be available on October 13 in North America and Europe for PlayStation VR. It joins EVE: Valkyrie as the second EVE game to be available at PSVR’s launch next month.

Already available for Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, and HTC Vive, EVE: Gunjack for PlayStation VR will include higher-resolution graphics, an enhanced audio experience, Trophies, leaderboards, and improved textures, models, and effects.

Here’s what CCP’s Michael Lee says about EVE: Gunjack:

Gunjack delivers fast-paced and fully immersive action in the gorgeous, panoramic sci-fi space setting of the Eve universe. You will take on the role of a gun turret operator on the Kubera, the largest mining vessel ever constructed, in the Outer Ring region of known space. As part of the ship’s defense team, it’s up to you to protect the rig from pirates, opportunists, and anyone else looking to take what rightfully belongs to the company.

As enemy ships begin their attack, you use your head to aim and the controller to fire your cannons, activate special weapons, and reload. Eliminating enemy ships can get you powers-ups such as repair modules and special weapons in the form of guided missiles, smart bombs, and lasers. Gunjack is easy to get into with its intuitive controls and intense action.

A price wasn’t announced for the PSVR version, but it does cost $9.99 USD on Steam.
