That’s extremely good on them.
Starting with Eagle Flight, Ubisoft has announced that its VR games will support cross platform play. Eagle Flight is available from today, and from now on, Ubisoft has said that owners of Oculus, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR will be able to team up or engage each other in multiplayer games going forward.
“Making our VR titles cross-platform has been a goal of ours from the start,” said David Votypka, senior creative director at Red Storm, developer of Eagle Flight. “Our games feature a strong multiplayer experiences, so letting friends play together regardless of which headset they own will enhance the social nature of our games and let them be played the way we envisioned.”
Upcoming Ubisoft games, including Star Trek: Bridge Crew and Werewolf Within, will all support cross platform VR. Eagle Flight is available right now for Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR, with the HTC Vive version launching December 20.
