Latest EVE: Valkyrie Patch Turns It Into A HOTAS Paradise
Vision and control at the heart of this post-Warzone update.
Vision and control were at the heart of the latest update for CCP Games’ space shooter EVE: Valkyrie in the first significant update since the introduction of the Warzone update in September, which brought cross-platform play between VR and non-VR gamers.
According to the note, CCP Games took community feedback into account with this latest update which included amongst its more notable additions support for NVIDIA Surround, AMD EyeFinity and, for those of you who like your monitors super wide, or rather ultrawide EVE: Valkyrie now caters for the high end gaming monitors that operate at 21:9.
Onto controls and fans and enthusiasts of HOTAS (aka Hands On Throttle-And-Stick) controllers will be very pleased indeed with the addition of support and specfic (and customisable) control schemes for the Thrustmaster T-Flight HOTAS X, Logitech Saitek HOTAS X52, Logitech Saitek HOTAS X52 Pro, Saitek X-55 Rhino HOTAS, Logitech X-56 HOTAS, Thrustmaster Warthog Joystick & Throttle and Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick.
And, if you’re more enclined to fly by the seat of your… mouse, there’s also a new control scheme for it that removes the need for a mouse lock key, allowing pilots to constantly and smoothly move and turn with mouse movements.
