Anticipated virtual reality (VR) space combat title EVE: Valkyrie started life being developed by a small team at CCP Games’ Newcastle offices. Since then the title has risen to become something of a poster child for VR, due to arrive on both the Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus VR headsets on PC and PlayStation 4 respectively. Now the company is hiring a small number of new positions to help continue work on the title.
As can be seen on the CCP Games jobs page, a total of four new jobs have been listed by the developer. They include a Senior UI Arist/Graphic Designer, Senior Backend Programmer, Senior 3D Environment/Generalist Artists and a Development Director. As Senior Programmer Sigurdur Gunnarsson confirmed on Twitter, those hired will be set to work on EVE: Valkyire and will be ‘defining the future of VR games!’
EVE: Valkyrie is a multiplayer dogfighting title in which players sit in the cockpits of iconic spacecraft from the EVE: Online universe and wage war. The developers revealed a number of updates for the title earlier in the year at its EVE Fanest event, including a switch to Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4. It’s currently not clear if the project will be a launch title for either the Oculus Rift or Project Morpheus, and just how it will release. VRFocus will continue to follow the title’s progress going forward, bringing you the latest on it.
