Eve trailer draws MMO, Valkyrie, and Legion together with pretty CGI

Eve online CCP

Separate to making one of the best MMOs around, CCP have a knack for awesome trailers. With each expansion they’d release a video which drew attention to new features while also being full of pretty explosions and spaceships.

The Prophecy is no different, it shows CCP’s new focus on Eve as a universe, one where Eve: Online, Valkyrie, Legion, and Dust 514 all exist coherently. And it looks bloody marvellous.

The focus of this trailer, drawing the different Eve games together by showing individual Valkyrie fighters and Legion troops boarding troops amid a vast ship battle, adds a little sense to another recent CCP decision, cancelling World of Darkness. It just doesn’t fit in with the rest of CCP’s games.

Speaking to Polygon about the demise of World of Darkness, CCP CEO Hilmar Veigar Pétursson said “It is extremely difficult because the idea and the concept are terribly inspirational and powerful, we really had to be honest with ourselves. This is not trending towards what we were hoping or planning for in the beginning [...] So, even though it was extremely difficult, this was the time where it’s OK, we have given it all we’ve got for now. Better to stop it, and company to go focus on the EVE universe."

I can’t wait to see what comes out of CCP, though, now they’re solely focussed on Eve games and tying them altogether.

but will I be able to play valkyrie without the Rift/Morpheus? as I don't see a reason I could ever justify getting a VR headset.

the EVE Valkyrie will be exclusively for Oculus VR platform, so only with Oculus Rift, other VR systems will not be supported.

To answer the question, you will not be able to play Valkyrie without Oculus Rift VR headset.

I'm sorry, you are right, but that it makes the "Valkyrie is Oculus VR exlusive" statement false, next time I should check CCP sources and dont fully trust what I read in this site's articles..

The concept of having all these different games interacting in the same universe is brilliant. To be part of the grand political meatgrinder that is Eve while playing an FPS, knowing that your objectives will affect the greater game, would make it so much more significant. Most people prefer some form of metagame to add some gravity to the battles, in this case the metagame is replaced by another, bigger game. I don't know exactly how Valkyrie fits in, but just the spectacle of having a live Eve battle as the setting to your space combat sim gives it the potential to be an amazing experience. I don't have the time to commit to playing Eve seriously any more, but Valkyrie and Legion have me itching to get involved again.

giving it a though, doing Valkyrie battles alongside major EVE battle could be quite problematic, as many big EVE battles include heavy time dilatation in order to ease the heavy load on servers, so I'm pretty curious how they figure it out. And on the other hand, big battles dont happen everyday, so connecting those two could be quite problematic.

Good point. Time dilation would be a bit of a mood killer in a space sim. I wonder how they will interact then. If it's all in separate instances, merely having an effect in Eve, it kind of takes the edge off it.
