Eve: Valkyrie’s free Gatecrash update adds an icy new map, pilot customisation and more

EVE: Valkyrie Gatecrash

CCP are releasing the free Gatecrash expansion for Eve: Valkyrie this week, delivering a new frozen map that has players dogfighting in an arctic nebula, as well as adding pilot customisation. 

For more dogfighting in the infinite black, check our list of the best space games.

Central to the Eve: Valkyrie Gatecrash update is the new multiplayer map, Gateway, which has players weaving around a frozen asteroid field and ducking in and out of a giant structure, zipping between scaffolding and chasing other pilots via risky manoeuvres. You can also warp from one side of the map to the other to flee a pursuer.

In addition, the new pilot customisation system allows players to personalise their appearance by choosing from thousands of combinations of helmets, flight jackets and more, all using the in-game currency.

Watch CCP talk you through the update during the recent PlayStation Experience.

This cross-platform update will be free to all owners of Eve: Valkyrie on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive on December 7.
