EVE: Valkyrie is getting another big update, Groundrush, next week


April 11

Today during their EVE Fanfest keynote in Iceland, CCP announced that EVE:Valkyrie, their VR combat spinoff, is getting its first big update (for me anyway, as there’s technically five so far) on April 11 across all platforms (Vive, Rift, PSVR). Groundrushadds in a new ship type,more wormholes, a better tutorial, expanded co-op, and a better ranking system. The most notable update however is an additional map, which will bring ground-based ship battles to the EVE universe.

CCP CEO Hilmar Veigar Pétursson joked that this is basically fulfilling a promise they made back in 2006, when they showed ground flight in the original EVE Online. “Same concept, different game,” he retorted.
