EVE: Valkyrie. Composer

The East Wing In house composer, Rich McCoull has just completed the sound track for Oculus Rift game EVE:Valkyrie

The game was developed by CCP games as one of the titles that would be bundled with Oculus rift on its launch. Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset that supports 360 degree visuals to total immerse the gamer in an other world environment. Having tried it...it definitely does that! 

The game has already been called “Oculus Rift’s flagship VR game” by Bloomberg, EVE: Valkyrie is an award-winning, multi-player dog-fighting game that has been built with one goal in mind, to harness the very latest advances in virtual reality technology. It is a truly immersive journey that capture the rush and excitement of being a real spaceship pilot in the midst of combat.  USA Today has stated that EVE: Valkyrie is “perhaps the greatest showcase of virtual reality’s potential.”

After discussions with the team at CCP they were really keen on very strong percussion and powerful basslines. They were keen not to do anything to traditional...after all this is the launch game for a brand new technology...and its in space!

We hope to keep posting more extracts from the game sound track as they are released online
