EVE Valkyrie’s Warzone overhaul nukes VR requirement, adds capture-the-flag mode
EVE Valkyrie’s Warzone overhaul is live today for those with $29.99 rattling around in their space piggybanks, unless you already own the game, in which case the update is freeeeeee. The new headline feature is an Overwatch-esque CTF “Extraction” mode, plus two new maps, wormhole challenges, and the promised lootboxes.
“EVE: Valkyrie – Warzone includes all the content and improvements released for EVE: Valkyrie since launch while dramatically enhancing the experience for new and current players alike. It introduces a next-generation fleet of iconic ships – including the new Covert class ship, ‘Shadow’ – each one with their own distinctive role to play in battle. With new weapons – including powerful Ultra abilities – and a fully redesigned progression system for each ship, players will have more control over how they evolve their arsenal to suit their playstyle.”
CCP believes Valkyrie is the “first fully cross-platform, cross-reality videogame for VR, PC, and PlayStation 4.” VR access, by the way, is no longer a necessity for the game as of today; in fact, VR and non-VR plebes will be pew-pewing each other in perfect harmony.
