Motion sickness isn't a problem in Eve Valkyrie, say CCP: "It works out super nicely"Motion sickness isn't a problem in Eve Valkyrie, say CCP: "It works out super nicely"

I'm afraid Mr. P├ętursson is being optimistic here. I and two other guys spent the morning playing Eve Valkyrie at our office today. The machine is insanely powerful (we're a VFX studio, so the workstation has four 980TI graphics cards in it, as an example), and the Oculus Rift was the new, just released model. Game play was completely smooth and the experience was awesome - the game is super immersive.

Dogfights were a lot of fun... until we all got sick. Every single on of us felt nauseous after varying amounts of play time, and we've all abandoned the game. One person indicated that he is susceptible to motion sickness in a car, and another said it has happened to him but rarely. I personally got sick and I can say I rarely ever experience motion sickness (I even own a sailboat).

I'm afraid VR nausea continues to be the elephant in the VR room.

Edit: We let a forth guy play it. He felt sick for a few hours after playing. So Valkyrie is 4 for 4!

EVE Valkyrie review snippet Does the setting of EVE Valkyrie feel original?
It's pretty impressive - graphics aren't quite what I'd have expected, but the overall feeling is effective.
