EVE Online News – Collector’s Edition to Ship October 24th

CCP Games has announced that players can expect to have their EVE Online Collector's Editions begin shipping on October 24th. North American customers will have their CE shipped from Atlanta, while European customers will have their CE shipped from Nortorf, Germany.

Next, I’m also pleased to announce our third and final Collector’s Edition pre-purchase offer, the brand new Genolution CA-3 and CA-4 implants! A dynamic boosting duo to help you survive in the cold, dark reaches of space.

When combined with implants CA-1 and CA-2 they provide a bonus of 4.9% in cap recharge, cap amount, CPU, powergrid, max velocity, agility, shield and armor.

Just to clarify, if you have already pre-purchased the Collector’s Edition then you will not miss out! You will be receiving a code shortly from the place of purchase allowing you to collect the implants.

EVE Online News – Valkyrie Revealed

The VR space-themed aerial fighting game once known as EVE-VR is now EVE Valkyrie and the team has released new information about Valkyrie along with a trailer that is currently hosted at PC-IGN.

CCP's boss Hilmar Petursson had this to say: “From the moment this year’s Fanfest attendees first got their hands on EVE-VR, the question 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.”

EVE Online News – Demoing EVE-VR at E3 2013

During E3, the MMORPG.com team got together with CCP Games to check out the next ten years of EVE Online. One of the things they enjoyed seeing was the "EVE-VR" in action. See what the team thought and then head to the comments.

CCP continues to look at eSports with EVE and the Alliance Tournament offered some unique prizes through live stream. But what we also saw at E3 was EVE-VR, built to take full advantage of the Oculus Rift. CCP have a very solid deathmatch prototype game which could definitely translate into a massively scaled dogfighting game. We got to demo EVE-VR and the fast-paced space combat as seen through your own cockpit was simply awesome. The game was developed by five members of the EVE team for fun and now is looking like a solid addition to the studio’s game library. Using just missiles and lasers, you fight in a 7 vs. 7 combat scenario which only last a few minutes, but what a few minutes. Enhanced by the full 3D surround view of the goggles, the game brings you right into the seat of your ship.  I’ll let Bill and Rob explain it in their own words.
