EVE Valkyrie shifts from testing to launch this month

Do you all remember betas? They used to be something games went through, back in the days before early access, alphas, pre-alphas, and pre-pre-alphas. EVE Valkyrie is part of the modern generation of development that won’t be sandwiching a beta between alpha and launch, although it doesn’t mean that the game isn’t ready for prime time.

The fighter title will be wrapping up its alpha program next week on March 12th in preparation for launch. CCP thanked the testers for helping to ferret out bugs: “You’ve helped us fix bugs and balance ships. You’ve hung out on the forums, asking all the right questions, pushing us to make the game better. Our alpha pilots have been instrumental in helping shape the future of the game.”

EVE Valkyrie will launch on March 28th and is part of a $599 package that includes the Oculus Rift.

dasfunboy EVE is great except the actual flying space ships part.

This will be interesting to check up on occasionally, just to see how long the population sticks around.

I kinda like the idea of being manipulated into playing EVE.

You know what would be great? If they used Valkyrie to slowly replace EVE.
Start the game as a typical boring lobby shooter but then slowly morph it into EVE. Develop a small persistent map, like 1 system in EVE and slowly build the game out until it replaces EVE.

EVE’s biggest problem is you dont actually get to fly your ships, you control them from the 3rd person. This would fix that problem.
