Seriously.. POS bashes would be sooooo much more fun if you had swarms of pilots defending the poses.

Although it will never happen. The mechanics are different so that wont work as there is poor collision detection and a player could blap you without "trying" while you may find it nearly impossible to dodge shots.

Still, the idea of that feeling, launching in a fighter out of a POS hanger and flying through battleships and capitals just firing at anything would look like one hell of a bee hive! fire?

Used to play Descent with a far cruder HMD. Count me in.

The only end-game content in EVE Online is the crap that makes you rage quit.

I played it in Iceland at Fanfest. I wanna do it again, and I'm ready to buy an Occulus VR just because of this game. Good luck, and I'm waiting for it!

So many possibilities:

- POS hangars full of Fighters/Fighter Bombers
- Carriers giving control of a wing of fighters to a Valkyrie pilot
- CONCORD/Faction Police having fighter escorts to take out criminals
- I-HUB upgrade to have fighter patrols in Nullsec
- DUST bombing runs
- DUST ground to air intercept fleets

As long as we're getting a PC client, I'm perfectly willing to buy an Oculus Rift for this.

This looks really interesting and I'm sure it will bring some excitement leading up to it's release. I just hope they don't screw it up like CCP did to WIS and the character build. All of which are now on the shelf as some day maybe options. Oh least I forget White Wolf development as another maybe some day release.

CCP's sand box is EVE Online.  The sand is owned by CCP.  We pay them a monthly fee to throw the sand at each other.  That is all that is here, so move along. Nothing more to be seen.

This! ^

Oh man I think fly-by-wire / atmospheric flight was the first thing I ever posted in F&I... or maybe it was GD since I was so new and didn't distinguish between forum sections. This is by far the coolest thing I could have hoped for. It's better than POS's, better than Incarna even if it had been delivered. We are getting there! What a tremendous leap forward. Congratulations and a huge thanks to CCP!!! So pumped! PirateBig smileShockedPirate

Yes! The best news.

Not sure if 'story mode' really fits with Eve, maybe co-p missions?

I just @$## in my pants.

Seriously - Oculus and Eve.... I don't know a single one of my guys in corp that would not buy this. Talk about PC goodness you are not going to find anywhere else. Tie it in with game...OMG.

Shut up and take my money is right.

Second that $hit!!

How cool will it be to man fighters and add that. Then maybe get WiS with Oculus...This game is the best game on the planet.

Hands down.

Today is a joyous day! The players have spoken, they have asked for, and CCP has delivered! :D

Yea space sim overload! Elite Dangerous, Star Citizen and Eve <3 <3 <3 :D My poor graphics card!

Edit: And before someone else says it, it's more pew pew and less spreadsheets!

Exploration is Random. Random is Random... or is it?!

I don't know. Dust 514 looked amazing at first too. And now look what we got. I would rather habe th Reikjavik Team help out fixing Dust before they make a new project.

I also wonder if Valkyrie will be tied into the universe like Dust ist. Running on the same server and influencing the Eve Universe.
