CCP Games Shows Launch Trailer For 'EVE: Valkyrie'

One big selling point for the Oculus Rift was CCP Games’ EVE: Valkyrie, which put you in the cockpit of small ship fighting in the deep reaches of space. In fact, the game was one of the free titles included with a pre-order of the VR HMD. Still, that didn’t stop the game’s development team from releasing a launch trailer for one of the most highlighted VR titles in Oculus’ catalog.

The launch trailer is full to the brim of outer space dogfights. Aside from enemy ships, you’ll also have to dodge some bombs and even fly through the interiors of certain ships. Just like in CCP Games’ flagship title, the MMO EVE Online, your character doesn’t technically die in the game. Instead, its consciousness is transferred to a clone, along with all of the previous clone’s memories and experiences. You’re literally learning from past mistakes.

In addition to playing the game in VR, you’ll also have some input into the next steps of development for the game’s creators. Owen O’Brien, the game’s executive producer, released a roadmap of future updates for the game, such as improvements to the heads-up display, new maps and even a new game mode called “Carrier Assault.” However, there was another tab for potential ideas, and players can vote on which feature they’d like implemented into the game. Fans can also send in ideas for EVE: Valkyrie via the game’s forums.

Even though all of the Oculus pre-orders will include a copy of EVE: Valkyrie, the trailer is another effort from CCP Games to persuade customers to not only get the game, but the accompanying Rift HMD as well. The game will also be available for PlayStation VR, but that doesn’t come out until October. The game is priced at $59.99.

    Boycott CCP. They treat their customers and employees consistantly like crap. To fall in love with any CCP game is to a prequil to frustration and disapointment.
    This company does not even finish 50% of the products it gets to alpha development. They lie, they steal from their customer base, and they run their employees ragged with terrible management.

    Sounds like 87% of the Early Access games on Steam.

    I am not one to do your research for you. But here are a few bones. Use google in conjunction if you really need more. https://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/CCP-Reviews-E159347.htm
    They killed WOD. They never finished WIS. They completely ruined DUST by limiting it to PS, it is now dead. A decade of lies and bad management. These are but a few examples.

    I was looking forward to Ambulation, That they only partially implemented it with the Captains Quarters was disappointing, but was easily forgotten. (Having to re-do my character's look, however ...)

    As for WoD I don't know, so I will quote someone from the EvE Online forum: "World Of Darkness is one of the best selling horror RPG franchises ever. It predated the sparkling vampires and certainly has outlived them. Failing to buid a MMORPG on WoD is like failing to make a RTS out of a Warhammer license." - Indahmawar Fazmarai - 2/26/2016

    Dust was only ever going to be a console game targeting PS so it cannot be ruined by being exactly what it said it was going to be, a PS exclusive. (Dusters can chat with people of the wider Eve universe though.

    The link pointed out for CCP shows only one post in a year and that one was highly positive of new management. Jay_54 might be a disgruntled employee the way his post reads.
