Ubisoft's new virtual reality game, "Eagle Flight," will be coming to the Playstation VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive next year.

Destructoid reported that the upcoming game will allow players to fly over various parts of a French city with their friends and other gamers. It noted that the game's trailer, below, was similar to the earlier video where Ubisoft placed a camera on a bald eagle for an "Assassin's Creed Syndicate" promotion.

According to VG247, the game gives players an aerial view of Paris, 50 years after people abandoned the French capital. Gamers will reportedly act as eagles who will monitor what's left in Paris.

Through this new game, players can also "perform impressive aerial maneuvers and engage in heart-pounding aerial dogfights in the blink of an eye," as per the same report.

As players acting as eagles fly around the massive city, Road to VR said gamers will have to use their head to control the direction of the bird, while the controller will manage the speed.

"The early version we saw featured surprisingly compelling capture the flag gameplay where players would snatch the flag and try to race to capture it before being intercepted by another player," the same report noted.

It was also mentioned that aside from hovering up above the ground, players can also fly low on city streets, under bridges and through gaps to be able to outwit their opponents in the game.

"Eagle Flight" is expected have single-player missions and various collectibles to be uncovered during the duration of the games. Aside from this, multiplayer modes will also allow up to six players to join the game.

Set to be launched in 2016, the new VR title will focus on "accessibility and comfort," as per IGN.

"As a result, the game features an Ubisoft-developed VR control technology breakthrough that provides players with intuitive and precise controls," IGN quoted Ubisoft as saying.

The game developer said this new technology reduces chances of motion sickness to allow players to move properly and to master their skills quickly for the performance of stunts.

Road to VR noted that the teaser trailer of the game was able to present a city that still has great style, architecture and featured "waterways, trees, and even deer running about."

It added that gamers are hoping that the trailer contained actual in-game footage and was not merely pre-rendered graphics, since players were awed with how the trailer played out.
