For those of you who are new to New Eden, EVE Vegas is a massive EVE Online player gathering in Las Vegas. This year, EVE Vegas is takes place shortly after the launch of EVE: Valkyrie – Warzone. We’ll be sending a few brave Valkyrie, CCP Roo, CCP Bosun and CCP Redcape, to show and tell you about the Warzone expansion.

Without further ado, here’s what EVE Online and freshly minted Valkyrie pilots can look forward to from CCP Newcastle at EVE Vegas 2017.

Presentation: EVE: Valkyrie – Enter the Warzone

Andrew Willans

At Fanfest 2017 we started conversations about the evolution of Valkyrie. With the release of the Warzone expansion we will have delivered some incredible new features, and radically improved the core game in terms of quality and accessibility.

This talk will delve into on that journey and provide some insights into bringing Valkyrie to PC and PS4 without the need for a VR headset, radically overhauling a fleet of ships and preparing the game for a new audience using mouse and keyboard.

Above all, the talk will cover how the lore of EVE Online and EVE: Valkyrie connect with one another, as well as peering into the game's future, which will include the introduction of community social tools, something that the EVE Online community utilise beautifully.
