You’re skimming right by the megastructure of a massive cruiser. You locked on your target and sent a salvo of missiles their way. Right now, that other person is using the Oculus Rift. But soon, they could be using the HTC Vive or PlayStation VR. Cross-platform play is coming to EVE: Valkyrie.
EVE: Valkyrie was the highlight for many during Oculus Rift’s launch. In the coming months, the game will hit HTC Vive and PlayStation VR. And when it does, we will be able to play with each other no matter what VR platform we are using.
EVE Valkyrie executive producer Owen O’Brien made the announcement at EVE Fanfest. O’Brien made it clear they want everyone to play together. This is great news for VR fans who might have been wondering exactly how multiplayer would work on the same game across VR platforms.
The EVE: Valkyrie news didn’t stop there. O’Brien also talked about a new mode coming soon. It’s called Carrier Assault, and it pits you and your team against a massive ship. Shields need to be taken down. Weapons need to be disabled. Oh, and a trench run to the carrier’s core. Sound epic? It looks epic. Here’s the first trailer.
Damn, I need an Oculus Rift today! Put a Battlestar Galactica or Star Wars skin on it, and I’ll buy one off of eBay.
Carrier Assault is coming in EVE Valkyrie’s summer update. Other updates include tweaking your joystick, a new map and more.
All the news is coming from EVE Fanfest, which started today and lasts through April 23rd. You can catch all the action on CCP’s Twitch stream. I checked it out for a second and saw a stat that is insane. The total value of all items on active player accounts is over 3 quadrillion ISK.
That number dwarfs the 978 trillion ISK active player accounts have right now across corporation wallets and character wallets.
