TAKE TO THE SKIES WITH EAGLE FLIGHT™ – THE FIRST VIRTUAL REALITY GAME FROM UBISOFT®
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – October 19, 2016 –Ubisoft has announced that its first Virtual Reality game, Eagle Flight, is now available on Oculus Rift and will be available on PlayStation®VR on November 8 and HTC Vive on December 20.
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 from a new point of view, as a bird of prey. As an eagle, players glide past historic landmarks and weave through narrow streets and secret passages. In single-player mode, players refine their flying skills, learning new tricks by competing in challenges and in multiplayer face-off in a heart-pounding capture-the-prey dogfights for up to three vs three players.
Eagle Flight, developed specifically for VR, focuses strongly on accessibility and comfort. The game features a VR control technology breakthrough 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 manoeuvres, and experience the true sensation of flight.
“At Ubisoft we care deeply about innovation and new technology, so we’re excited to release Eagle Flight, our first Virtual Reality game,” said Patrick Plourde, VP of FunHouse. “Eagle Flight is a fantastic game for newcomers to VR and experienced players alike. The game is very intuitive, so novice players can simply boot up the game and fly at their own pace with ease. For more seasoned players looking for a more intense experience, they can jump into the single player challenges or into a multiplayer match where they will have to expertly navigate the streets, skies and underground of Paris as they try to capture the prey and defeat their opponents.”
Eagle Flight marks the first virtual reality game launch for Ubisoft, who are also working on Werewolves Within™, Star TrekTM: Bridge Crew and a VR partnership with the film company, SpectreVision.
