EVE: Valkyrie is not the sort of game you can enter into casually. Sure, you can dip in and out for the odd battle… but once you enter the ranks of the Valkyrie, one’s commitment to the cause is total. Furthermore, the more you play the more you learn about the rich backstory that provides the foundation for the frenetic dogfighting action.
So, what have you learned thus far? How informed a Valkyrie pilot are you? As we segue into a new year, it seems appropriate to put our pilots’ knowledge of their new role to the test. Try out our quiz and discover whether you are one of Valkyrie’s best or a work-in-progress.
There are 15 points up for grabs and the answers are at the bottom of the article. Be advised that the rules state you’re not allowed to scour the internet for the answers or, indeed, scroll down to them. So, play fair!
