EVE Valkyrie: First Free Update ‘Carrier Assault’ Now Available, Adds New Game Mode, New Map and More

CCP today launched the Carrier Assault update for EVE: Valkyrie, the VR game for Oculus Rift, which launched in March 2016.  Carrier Assault is the first major free update to EVE: Valkyrie. In addition to the all-new Carrier Assault multiplayer game mode, EVE: Valkyrie pilots will also be getting the new Crossroads map, the new Boost Gate feature and loads of other improvements and updates.

Carrier Assault is a three-stage objective-based mode that takes VR space combat to explosive new heights. Until now the enemy’s carrier has been off limits in EVE: Valkyrie. In the Carrier Assault game mode, players now have the opportunity to get up close and personal, battering down the enemy carrier’s defences and carving out a path to deliver the killer blow and put it out of action in an explosive finale.

The Carrier Assault update also includes:

  • A new multiplayer map: Crossroads
  • New Echoes, Salvage, and Survival single-player missions
  • New Boost Gates in multiplayer maps that bring an increased sense of speed and add new combat tactics
  • Match bonuses that give players additional experience for completing matches, regardless of the outcome
  •  Ship balancing – Many of the game’s ships have updated stats based on feedback from the EVE: Valkyrie community
  • Improvements to AI behaviour and other fixes

The Carrier Assault update is available now for all owners of EVE: Valkyrie on Oculus Rift via a mandatory update on Oculus Home.  It will be included in the game at launch for PlayStation VR this October, and for HTC Vive in 2016.
