EVE: Valkyrie (formerly EVE-VR) is a multiplayer dogfighting shooter set in the EVE universe that uses virtual reality to give players the sense of being a real pilot in an EVE Online fighter. Coming 2014.
In EVE: Valkyrie, you are an elite space fighter pilot who has recently become immortal, thanks to the efforts of Rán Kavik, leader of the breakaway pirate group known as the Valkyrie. As a newly-recruited member of the Valkyrie, you will battle rival pirate factions for wealth, supremacy, and notoriety.

What is VR?
We believe that Virtual reality, or VR, is the future of interactive entertainment. VR offers the simulation of real or fictional environments using specialised wearable computer hardware to give users the illusion of being in another world. Core to the virtual reality experience is complete user immersion, including 360-degree visuals generated by a head-mounted display.
2016 sees the dawn of the virtual reality revolution, with high quality but affordable VR headsets being released to consumers for the first time.
