EVE Valkyrie was the best thing I saw at gamescom photo
EVE Valkyrie was the best thing I saw at gamescom
by Dale North

I saw a prototype of what was to be EVE Valkyrie at E3 this year. Along with Respawn's Titanfall, it was the talk of the show. CCP knew they had something special, so they created a full game from this demo.

Here at gamescom, CCP are showing a build so new that they just wrapped it up five days ago. Work started on what was to be Valkyrie in Reykjavik, but now they've moved to Newcastle, where a studio of 20 are working on it full time. 

While exciting, what I saw at E3 was still rough around the edges, and running on standard definition Oculus Rift headsets. They've been working on it ever since, talking the experience and turning it up as far as they could. It's now running on Rift HD prototype sets, packed full of improvements.

CCP 'confident' about Dust 514's five-year future

Late last year, erstwhile EVE Online executive producer Jon Lander proclaimed -- perhaps emboldened by his own game's impending ten-year anniversary -- that CCP had "a five-year roadmap" for the recently-released free-to-play...

Night moves: No day cycle in World of Darkness, says CCP

Boy's club: Why don't more women play EVE Online?

According to David Reid, CCP Games' chief marketing officer, 96 percent of the people subscribing to his company's flagship MMO EVE Online are male. That's crazy high.

Review: Dust 514 photo
Review: Dust 514
by Chris Carter

Dust 514 is one of the most ambitious games of all time. Not content with just offering a shooter within the EVE Online universe, CCP Games seeks to actually connect the game to EVE itself, allowing both titles to influence each other in a huge way. It's a major undertaking, and something that was immediately noticed from the very start of the project -- if successful, it could very well change the way we look at gaming.

There's only one problem: it needs a ton of work before it gets there.

How CCP made a virtual reality spaceship dogfighting sim photo
How CCP made a virtual reality spaceship dogfighting sim
by Joseph Leray

EVR opens with a pilot in the cockpit of a small ship, docked in a cramped launching tube. After a short countdown, the ship is fired out like a bottle rocket, the compact hangar giving way to the sheer expanse of space, littered with fragments of asteroids, a scuttled Minmatar Tempest gunship, and the remains of an ancient cathedral.

It’s one thing to move a character or a ship through a three-dimensional space, but it’s another to strap on a virtual reality headset and be able to look left and right into infinity, to look down and see a set of hands clutching a flight stick.

I imagine being launched from the Battlestar Galactica in a Viper would feel like the first thirty seconds of EVR.

Here's a petition for CCP to release virtual-reality EVR
