    EVE: Valkyrie’s New ‘Gatecrash’ Update Available Now

    – Third Free Update Brings New Map, Gameplay Features, Customization Options and PlayStation®4 Pro Enhancements to Valkyrie Pilots –

    Today, CCP Games launches the Gatecrash update for EVE: Valkyrie – the virtual reality space combat shooter set in the universe of EVE – on HTC VIVE, PlayStation®VR and Oculus Rift. Gatecrash is the third major free update for EVE: Valkyrie and introduces new gameplay features, a pilot customization system and the multiplayer Gateway map with its stunning icy visuals, located around an unfinished warp gate in the Outer Rim. The Gatecrash update also brings support for PS4 Pro, enabling enhanced visuals and improved performance.

    Gatecrash was first revealed on the official livestream for PlayStation Experience 2016 by Lead Designer Andrew Willans. A recording of that livestream can be found here: https://youtu.be/ZwlO7dMKck0

    Andrew Willans has also written a developer blog with more information about the Gatecrashupdate, which can be found via https://www.evevalkyrie.com/articles/updates-and-patches/gatecrash-update-and-patch-notes

    A new video exploring the Gatecrash update and its unique features can be found via here:

    Central to the EVE: Valkyrie Gatecrash update is the exciting new multiplayer map, Gateway, which offers incredible variety and beautiful visuals, such as ice asteroids and a unique, structure-based layout. Gateway provides unique gameplay compared to other maps as pilots are catapulted from one end of the map to the other by warp points. Who knows where the warp gate is pointed,or why Frostline corporation ships still circle it?

    In addition, the new pilot customization system allows pilots to personalize their appearance by choosing from a range of new helmet and suit designs. From the subdued to the outrageous, all are available using in-game currency.

    The Gatecrash update also brings increased resolution, dynamic shadows, improved particle effects, and improved loading times for PS4 Pro owners. Additional PS4 Pro enhancements will come in future updates as well.

    The free Gatecrash update is available now for all owners of EVE: Valkyrie on Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR and HTC Vive. 

    Further free content updates are also in development for all Valkyrie pilots. More information about EVE: Valkyrie can be found at http://www.evevalkyrie.com/.
