EVE: VALKYRIE

EVE: Valkyrie was released on November 17, 2016 by CCP who also developed this game. EVE: Valkyrie is a virtual reality space fighter game.

This game requires the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive headset.

CCP brings space flight to VR with EVE: Valkyrie. Players can now fly in space and fight it out.

Join the Valkyrie, an outlaw band of galactic pirates, and take up arms to claim what’s yours. Trade cannon fire for cash as you chase wealth and notoriety on the edge of space.

Players have lots of options for customization of their spacecraft. This game allows consoles and PC gamers to fight it out on the same servers. When a player dies, they respawn as a clone of the original playter.

The VR headset allows the player to look around inside the spaceship so this is a change in gameplay from more conventional games like X Wing.

The games has a few Chronicles which act as a single layer trainer . Gameplay is fairly straightforward, the tried-and-tested formula of arcade controls, team deathmatch modes and unlockable upgrades are typical.

Audio is mediocre but it does the job.

DLC

Silver takes while to earn and gold has to be purchased. This is on top of the AAA release price making this game rather expensive..
