    EVE Valkyrie (aka EVR)

    http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/08/...gfighting-game

    It was originally a tech demo made by five guys in their spare time, but now EVE-VR - the Oculus Rift space dogfighting game that made its debut at EVE Fanfest this year - is going to be a full game called EVE Valkyrie, coming in 2014.

    The teaser trailer is enough to give anyone with fond memories of games like Wing Commander chills. The game itself was hugely impressive even in tech demo format at Fanfest, putting you into the cockpit of a nimble fighter craft with full freedom of movement and vision thanks to Oculus Rift, but now that it's been greenlit for full production it will have the resources behind it to look truly stunning. Development is being handled at CCP's Newcastle studio in the UK, and the people at CCP's head office in Reykjavik who prototyped the game in their spare time are all moving there to lead the project.

    Developer CCP is arguably already the video game world's official King of Space, as the creator of long-running, fascinatingly complex and fanatically beloved spaceship MMO EVE Online, which ties into free-to-play PS3 shooter Dust 514. EVE Valkyrie is set in the same universe, but it won't have the complex gameplay of either. It's a high-speed, high-adrenaline flight combat game.

    Last time I played it, EVE Valkyrie was a multiplayer-only dogfighter, but when I asked CCP whether there would be a single-player story component in the full game the answer was an ambiguous "we're not ready to talk about that yet". With all that EVE history and lore to draw from, it's tempting to believe that a single-player campaign is part of the plan for the game.

    Valkyrie_02

    CCP's boss Hilmar Petursson had this to say: “From the moment this year’s Fanfest attendees first got their hands on EVE-VR, thequestion has been, ‘When can I have this?' 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.”

    We'll have more on EVE Valkyrie and its evolution from experimental demo to full game later this week, as we spend more time with it at Gamescom. Until then, enjoy the trailer.

    Due out 2014, made in the Newcastle office.

    Either CCP is going to hire more staff or the reassignment of staff is going to be a good blow to Dust developement.

    ...unless they are going to make it interface with Dust (more likely that interfacing with EVE combat, at least).


    I would prefer a classic single-player or coop campaign, tbh.

    NNiicceee.... Only, shouldn't it have been EVE Templar? Medium drones aren't manned and that looks golden to me.

    Wonder what market we're looking at for the O.Rift - and what hardware aside from the headset would be used to play this?

    The development kit is only working on PC but they aim to get it working on consoles in the future. I hope it will be a PC game this time around, fuck consoles.

    I'm skeptical of a good way to tie this into the dice-rolling and auto-targeting system that Eve uses. And I'm not sure how good it'll be as a PC standalone game, without any integration.

    With Dust and its lore a lot of names have gotten convoluted. "Templar" now refers to the Amarr Fighter (used by carriers), the first unit of Amarrian immortal mercenaries, and the official book about said mercs. Best not to add to that mess.

    Not in the same vein, no (15 years, damn!). What made Freespace awesome, to me at least, was how the game made you feel powerful yet insignificant at the same time. You would have just taken out a wing of bombers and escorted your own to take out a cruiser, while 5 more hostile wings jump in and your squadron's capital ships are carving each other up with pretty-pretty ginormous beam cannons. Then you are cutting across someone's firing solution to intercept some fighters, dodging flak and AA beams left and right when another enemy cruiser jumps in right in front of you and brings its guns to bare.

    Damn, I loved that game.

    I do not think it will be integrated to actual EVE combat at all, i could imagine it as a sort of Arena Mode where EVE Players can bet on or something like that.

    It's sort of a no-brainer given the positive player and press reception. But it still means CCP had to pull resources away from something else. So it was by no means a given; CCP could have very well skipped this.

    Nevertheless I'm glad they've decided to further develop the concept into a full game.

    Agreed. The problem with an MMO in the style of EVE is that by making it player controlled, it's just that: player controlled. Which limits how CCP can throw things like the EVE lore, characters, and various assets (particularly music) at the player. A more traditional game would be a good chance to present those elements to players in a structured, narrative manner. Plus CCP gets to recycle all sorts of assets.

    Of course CCP is playing coy on SP at the moment. But I do not seriously expect this game to be MP-only; as fun as it is said to be, it would be difficult to sell it as an MP-only affair.

    Indeed. Freespace 2 was the last great space sim. Reelased in September of 1999, literally a millennium ago.

    In before the Star Citizen koolaiders come in and tell us that this is totally redundant because their *cough*not vapourware*cough* will have all the features of Eve Valk, Dust and Eve rolled into one plus the ability to fully simulate entire planets on a person by person scale.

    Regardless of platform fanboying, consoles don't do HOTAS. End of discussion.

    Colony Wars was a good series (I didn't get a chance to play the third one, though, but it looked almost identical to the Star Trek Invasion fighter sim which was OK), but FreeSpace 2 is king of space fighter sims. The engine is opensource and the game files or TC mods are easy enough to obtain - it's a must play.

    Looking forward to this game.

    Would be a nice way to balance supercarriers or w/e...make you use Oculus VR duders.

    It would be cool to have fighter layouts... and be able to setup actual squadrons of real players who could pilot and make carriers the best Capital... imho

    Someone could be porkins.

    Also, that trailer had too little content.
