Ubisoft has revealed a new VR experience, set to debut next year. Eagle Flight lets you take to the skies of Paris as an eagle, and will be available for both Windows PCs through the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
We were hugely impressed with Eagle Flight when we tried out the early demo at E3 2015. Piloting our eagle avatars was as easy as looking where we wanted to go, and the experience of plunging into a nosedive between buildings and then pulling up into the sky delivered an exhilarating sense of speed and freedom. Testing our new skills against each other in quick multiplayer matches only heightened that feeling, and it's a huge thrill to weave your way between buildings at high speeds when you know there's an enemy following right behind you.
In addition to these challenges, there are also a number of missions and collectibles to find. All of it is set in a world 50 years after the complete disappearance of humanity.
All Ubisoft will say about a release date right now is that Eagle Flight is set to arrive in 2016.
