EVE Valkyrie Gets New Screenshots & Gameplay Video


CCP shared some new EVE Valkyrie media today, including five screenshots and a gameplay video.

That's accompanying the news that EVE Valkyrie will premiere on the Oculus Rift, with all pre-orders getting a free copy of the game.

Palmer Luckey, the Founder of Oculus VR, said:

EVE: Valkyrie is one of the most anticipated virtual reality games, and one of the first true VR games to go into development. It perfectly captures the promise of immersive gaming, shooting you into a sci-fi adventure as you pilot a spaceship in search of combat. Battling your friends (and enemies) in multiplayer space dogfights is the ultimate VR thrill, and we're excited to partner with CCP to bring this experience to Rift owners everywhere.

The Oculus Rift is still pinned for a Q1 2016 release at the moment, so that's when EVE Valkyrie should hit. The game, a multiplayer dogfighting shooter spin-off of EVE Online, is also being developed for PlayStation 4 with PlayStation VR support. Here's a list of its main features:

  • Intense team-based multiplayer dogfights
  • Fully immersive 360-degree action combat
  • Rank and reputation-based character progression
  • Change strategies on the fly with loadouts and ship-swapping
  • Unlock and customize advanced ships, weapons and equipment
  • Choose between different ship classes, each with its own strengths, weaknesses, and role to play on the battlefield
