EVE: Valkyrie Announced

CCP Games announces Operation Valkyrie is in effect, announcing EVE: Valkyrie, a multiplayer spaceship dogfighting shooter using the EVE Universe, the setting of EVE Online, their hardcore MMORPG. This is to launch next year, and in the meantime, the EVE: Valkyrie website is online, offering a a trailer introducing the project. Here's the announcement:

Cologne, Germany – August 21, 2013 – CCP Games, the leading independent developer of massively multiplayer online games, today announced it has begun development of EVE: Valkyrie, a multiplayer spaceship dogfighting shooter set in the EVE Universe. The game uses virtual reality to give players the sense of being a real pilot in an EVE Online spaceship and will be released in 2014.

EVE: Valkyrie is the evolution of “EVE-VR,” the amazing virtual reality tech demo that debuted at EVE Fanfest 2013 and went on to win numerous awards at E3 2013 — including “Game of E3 2013” by PC Gamer and “Most Innovative” by IGN. The game will be developed at the company’s Newcastle studio.

“From the moment this year’s Fanfest attendees first got their hands on EVE-VR, the question has been, ‘When can I have this?’,” said Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CEO of CCP. “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.”
