EVE VR is now EVE Valkyrie and is now on it’s way to being a fully-fledged commercial title rather than merely an incredibly successful tech demo. Jon Lander, Executive Producer at CCP Games, sat down to describe the journey this immensely promising multi-player Space Shooter.
At last, the inevitable has happened and CCP Games has announced that EVE Valkyrie will hit a full release at some point in 2014. Jon Lander, who joined CCP from IBM after becoming a significant player in the EVE Online game scene, is jubilant that the work his team in Reykjavik knocked out in their spare time has been deemed worthy of release. This interview offers Lander’s recollections of the journey so far and his thoughts on VR gaming today and in the future.
