With their newly revealed game Gunjack, CCP Games plan to deliver an immersive, virtual reality take on their established EVE universe.

CCP Games, the Iceland based creators of the massively multiplayer game EVE Online, have released a new video for their upcoming mobile game Gunjack. Gunjack is an arcade shooter, set in the EVE Online universe, in which you take on the job as a gun turret operator to destroy enemy spaceships.

The game specifically launches alongside the soon-to-be released consumer version of the Samsung Gear VR headset.

Check out the reveal trailer below:

Gear VR – Samsung’s virtual reality contender

Gear VR is not a full-fledged virtual reality device per se. The VR headset, which was built in a collaboration effort between Samsung and Oculus,  comes equipped with an optical lens, granting a 96° field of view. Aside from the technology inside of the headset, you’ll need a Samsung Galaxy Note 4, S6, or S6 Edge to use it. It’s currently available as an “Innovator Edition”, with a full commercial launch planned later this year.
