Gunjack is set in CCP’s EVE universe and enables players to take on the role of a gun turret operator on a mining vessel in the Outer Ring region of known space. As part of the ship’s defense team, it is up to the player to protect the rig from pirates, opportunists and anyone else looking to take what rightfully belongs to the company. Gunjack is built from the ground up for VR, and since its launch in November 2015 for the Samsung Gear VR, Gunjack has been the platform’s top-selling game.

Gunjack’s new gameplay video looks quite impressive and the improvements that CCP made for its PC VR release will likely show! If we judge by Gunjack’s success on the Samsung Gear, the game will probably be a success on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive alike. WIll you be playing Gunjack on one of the PC VR platforms?
