EVE: Valkyrie Gets Gatecrash Update
CCP Games has launched the Gatecrash update for EVE: Valkyrie – the virtual reality space combat shooter set in the universe of EVE – on HTC VIVE, PlayStation VR and Oculus Rift. Gatecrash is the third major free update for EVE: Valkyrie and introduces new gameplay features, a pilot customisation system and the multiplayer Gateway map with its stunning icy visuals, located around an unfinished warp gate in the Outer Rim. The Gatecrash update also brings support for PS4 Pro, enabling enhanced visuals and improved performance.
Central to the EVE: Valkyrie Gatecrash update is the exciting new multiplayer map, Gateway, which offers incredible variety and beautiful visuals, such as ice asteroids and a unique, structure-based layout. Gateway provides unique gameplay compared to other maps as pilots are catapulted from one end of the map to the other by warp points. Who knows where the warp gate is pointed, or why Frostline corporation ships still circle it?
In addition, the new pilot customisation system allows pilots to personalise their appearance by choosing from a range of new helmet and suit designs. From the subdued to the outrageous, all are available using in-game currency. The Gatecrash update also brings increased resolution, dynamic shadows, improved particle effects, and improved loading times for PS4 Pro owners. Additional PS4 Pro enhancements will come in future updates as well. Speaking about the pilot customisation, CCP Games have said:
“This update also includes a feature that we’re been itching to deliver at some point this year: Pilot Customization. It’s the ultimate expression tool for any pilot or squad looking to stand out from the crowd in the clone vats, results screens and cockpits. There are a huge range of flight suits and helmets in a range of colours and styles. You are now a clone in DNA only. With over 2000 possible combinations you can create a look that matches your style and strikes fear into the hearts of your opponents.”
The free Gatecrash update is available now for all owners of EVE: Valkyrie on Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR and HTC Vive.
