CCP Games has added Oculus Touch support to its first-person space combat game, EVE: Valkyrie. One of the first high profile VR titles, fans have been asking for Touch controls and the Icelandic developer has delivered – albeit slightly reluctantly, it appears.
CCP said that, ‘Motion controls simply don't give you the precision you need in Valkyrie. It's not at all easy to turn your Wraith on a sixpence and line up a devastating salvo when you're trying to fly it while waving your hands in the air; it actually feels less, not more responsive.’
With that caveat, CCP has added beta support for Touch as a work in progress that does not include motion controls. Basically, the update enables players to use Touch’s controls and buttons as a standard controller.
