Intrepid pilots - all good things come to an end, even to the immortal Valkyries. Today, we have begun the process of discontinuing support for EVE: Valkyrie to focus CCP Games' efforts and resources on new developments in our evolving portfolio of EVE Universe titles.

We are incredibly proud of what we accomplished with EVE: Valkyrie and its Warzone expansion and want to extend our deep appreciation to all our players for their support throughout the game's lifecycle. It is an honor to have been a part of such a dedicated community.

For the time being, you won't see any effect if you own a copy of the game. The game will continue to be playable with our servers remaining active until August 5th 2022.

On August 5th 2022, EVE: Valkyrie's servers will be turned off, social media profiles will be closed, and this website will go offline. Once servers are deactivated, customer support for EVE: Valkyrie will no longer be provided.

Thank you for being a part of EVE: Valkyrie. We look forward to the next chapter in the EVE Universe and hope you'll be a part of it and continue the journey with us.

Video Tutorial: Take Cover!

Ah, how well we remember the rush of our first launch. Not only that, we also vividly recall our naïve eagerness to dive straight into battle, all guns blazing, in an attempt to take down the entire enemy fleet on the first try and announce our arrival in New Eden in loud and spectacular fashion.

Only it doesn’t quite happen like that, does it? Fun though it is to front it out and tackle the opposition head-on, it’s not a tactic that is going to help your development as a pilot in the long term.

Success in EVE: Valkyrie is as much about holding back from the enemy as homing in on them. With that in mind, we’ve put together a little video tutorial for all our rookies out there, highlighting the best places to take cover and outfox the enemy in each of the game’s maps.

For example, the support struts beneath the main structure on the Cathedral map provide the perfect opportunity to evade enemy pursuers and break missile lock.

Of the asteroids that populate the Crossroads map, one has a cave system where you can lie in wait for an unsuspecting foe.

And on the all-new Solitude map, there’s a hangar bay where you can ‘hang out’ and take pot shots at people straying into your path.

So, get smart, take a look at the vid, then scout out the locations mentioned for yourself. Knowing the maps’ every nook and cranny will give you a definite advantage in battle.
