EVE: Valkyrie developers CCP Games has switched development of the VR shooter from Unity over to Unreal Engine 4.

The announcement was made during EVE Fanfest today.

CCP also announced Katee Sackhoff will play the starring role in the game as Rán, the leader of the Valkyrie fighter pilots.

“The first time I played EVE: Valkyrie I immediately knew I had to be a part of it,” said Sackhoff. “Even with the roles I have played, it is the closest I have ever felt to being a real spaceship pilot. It is a truly transformative video game experience.”

“Katee is the perfect actor to bring Rán to life,” added Owen O’Brien, executive producer for EVE: Valkyrie at CCP. “Not only does she have a track record in bringing strong female characters to life, but also once she had played Valkyrie I was delighted to see that she was as excited and enthused about the project as we are.”

EVE: Valkyrie is set for release sometime this year.

    @Steph,
    “The PS4 version of the game uses Sony’s Project Morpheus headset and “will be more similar to older builds of the game,” reports Eurogamer from the festivities. ”
    Sounds a bit erroneous imo.

    From report-
    “CCP is demonstrating that version on the new Oculus Rift DK2 headset at Eve FanFest in Reykjavik this week. Bertie is there and tried the new Valkyrie build, which was finished moments before the show. Apparently it’s a significant improvement over the GDC build which can be played on Sony’s Project Morpheus headset, also at FanFest. Bertie hasn’t tried both, though, so couldn’t comment. But he will.”

    @Dragon The report has changed since I posted this. It was only one paragraph at the time. I will just take it out completely.
