EVE Online: Valkyrie Revealed

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,643MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

The VR space-themed aerial fighting game once known as EVE-VR is now EVE Valkyrie and the team has released new information about Valkyrie along with a trailer that is currently hosted at PC-IGN.

CCP's boss Hilmar Petursson had this to say: “From the moment this year’s Fanfest attendees first got their hands on EVE-VR, the question has been, ‘When can I have this?' What started as a passion project by a small, incredibly talented group of CCP developers became one of the most highly anticipated games of the year — before we even announced it. We have big plans for EVE: Valkyrie and I can’t wait to share more details later this year.”

    Looks like 2014 is shaping up to be the year of the twitch-based space fighter.

    This might be cool if even just as a way to get some 6DoF action with big Eve ships in the background.

    This reminds me of those adverts on TV advertising HD TV. People go crazy over the quality but to me I was thinking "If I am getting that quality on my TV why do I need to buy the new HD TV?"...I guess you need to actually be part of the VR set-up to get how the VR set-up will work, watching a trailer on youtube isn't really showing much.

    This game will blow your mind!

    That clip from CCP reminds me of this epic battle between Starbuck and Scar.

    Looks interesting. Will have to keep an eye on this. Anyone know if this is a PC or console title (or both)?

    Looks like someone paid attention to how much attention and funding Star Citizen and Elite:Dangerous got on kickstarter.I'm fine with that the more the merrier.Hopefulyl all these gaems prove this genre isn't as dead as the AAA publishers believe.

    Actually, they paid attention to the rave reviews it got when it was demo'd at Fanfest and E3.

     That's a common thing with the Eve Universe.

    If you understood EvE, you would understand the big deal with this.

    Well after their horrible implementation of Dust 514, CCP should stick to Eve!

    This is a side game, not part of EVE.

    I was going to post "So... this is Dust 514, in space?" but now I want to ask was 514 that crappy?

    Did it suck because of  it on a console?

    I think a twitchy shooter mode in Eve-Online, where I'm a pilot for my FC's CapShip, might actually bring me back. I'd be pretty stoked to fly BSG-style in Eve...

    Isn't this only with the VR goggle thingies or will this be on PC and/or console?

     The Occulus Rift (stereoscopic goggles) are currently pc only

    So far there are only developer kits available (afaik) . I guess at some point multiple platform and/or OS support may become available, but i'd imagine it's something that's going to be value driven, ie will it be worth Occulus' time to develop for playstation/xbox and mac/Linux instead of just windows.

     

    Hawken made some noise about supporting the rift sometime ago, but I've heard nothing about it since
