CCP have announced that former DICE chap Owen O’Brien has joined the company as the executive producer on EVE: Valkyrie.
In case you forgot, EVE: Valkyrie is the first-person dogfighting game set in the EVE Online universe, with a heavy emphasis on using VR technology to create TRUE IMMERSION. Or possibly to make you throw up when you do a barrel roll at near lightspeed. One or the other.
He actually seems like a pretty good fit, too – at DICE, O’Brien led the production of Mirror’s Edge, a game which is pretty well known for creating a very physical first-person experience. I’m curious to see what he’ll manage with VR.
EVE: Valkyrie is due out in 2014, and you can have a look at some screenshots and a trailer here.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
