Developer CCP Games has announced the development of a new multiplayer spaceship dogfighting shooter set in the EVE Universe. EVE: Valkyrie is scheduled for release in 2014 and will use virtual reality to give players the sense of being a real pilot in an EVE Online spaceship.

The EVE shooter is the evolution of "EVE-VR", the amazing virtual reality tech demo that debuted at EVE Fanfest 2013 and went on to win numerous awards at E3 2013, including "Game of E3 2013" by PC Gamer and "Most Innovative" by IGN.

"From the moment this year’s Fanfest attendees first got their hands on EVE-VR, the question has been, 'When can I have this?'," said Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, CEO of CCP. "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."
