Digital and physical retail disc versions are preparing for launch
Hey PlayStation Blog readers. On behalf of our entire CCP Newcastle crew, I’m excited to announce that we are partnering with Sony Interactive Entertainment to publish EVE: Valkyrie as a physical retail disc for the launch of PlayStation VR on 13th October, 2016.
This means in addition to a day-one digital download release on PlayStation Store, we’ll also be hitting your favourite online or high street retailer with boxed copies of the game for PlayStation VR. No matter how you choose to buy EVE: Valkyrie on 13th October, either digitally or on disc, you’ll get the same great content at launch:
- EVE: Valkyrie, the game that’s been called the “killer app” for virtual reality by press around the world.
Along with the EVE: Valkyrie PlayStation VR Founder’s Pack content, which contains:
- Legendary ‘S4 Wraith’ Fighter
- PlayStation-only ‘Cobalt’ Flight Suit
- Official EVE: Valkyrie Founder’s Avatar
- Limited Edition ‘Founder’s Pilot’ Forum Tag on evevalkyrie.com
- War Chest of 2,500 Gold
- All updates to the game released since its launch on PC in March, including the explosive Carrier Assault mode.
Additional free content will be made available to all owners of EVE: Valkyrie throughout the game’s lifetime, and we’re already planning our first free post-launch update to the game (spoiler: it will involve spaceships).
In case you’ve missed it, we’ve teamed up with our friends at PlayStation to produce blogs, videos and behind-the-scenes sneak peeks – you can catch it all right here and get a special, in-depth look into the world of the Valkyrie. There you can hear from Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica; Riddick; Longmire), who brings our main character, Rán Kavik, to life. You’ll learn what makes her band of immortal space pirates tick. And you’ll find out how EVE: Valkyrie revolutionises space combat by creating gameplay made possible for the first time by VR tech.
If you’d like to know even more about the game or meet our team of VR developers, head to evevalkyrie.com and join the conversation on our forums, or follow EVE: Valkyrie on Twitter. Thanks for reading, and we hope to fly alongside you soon!
