“If you can play first-person shooters, you can pilot one of EVE: Valkyrie -Warzone’s amazing ships,” said Andrew Willans, the lead game designer at CCP’s Newcastle Studio, in a press statement. “Not having access to VR hardware will no longer hold gamers back from diving weapons-first into intense and highly competitive space combat with friends. We look forward to seeing the already intense competition between Valkyrie pilots going up a notch, as more players from around the world can join existing pilots for space-dogfighting battles.”
Warzone will be released for free to Valkyrie owners on September 26. Those who have not yet purchased the game will be able to pick up the updated version at a newly discounted price of $30/€30/£23.
