New Eden Nightmare – A New Wormhole Has Opened



Anyone who played EVE: Valkyrie’s new Wormhole Mode last weekend won’t be reading this, they’ll already be strapping themselves into the cockpit and crossing the conduit to a new and unique Valkyrie experience.

If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of entering a wormhole, allow us to briefly explain what you’re missing out on.

Wormholes is EVE: Valkyrie’s latest major update and as well as bringing new balances, HOTAS controller support for PSVR players, Leagues alpha feature and various other bells and whistles, the headline act is most definitely the new Wormholes play mode. Every weekend, running from Friday through to Sunday, a wormhole opens up through which players can travel to an alternate version of New Eden, a mirror galaxy where the usual rules no longer apply and everything has been corrupted in new and unexpected ways.

Last week’s wormhole presented players with a deeply disturbing take on the Cathedral map. It was essentially a Team Deathmatch scenario, but unlike anything encountered in the regular EVE: Valkyrie universe. Warped physics, shedloads of salvage and randomized respawn points led to some pretty chaotic encounters. But there is worse (and by ‘worse’ we mean ‘better’) in store this weekend.

This week’s wormhole, snappily named 82A/134-53LC5, takes place in a dark green and super-creepy version of the Necropolis map with a chaotic twist on the regular Control Mode. Prepare yourself for some frantic back and forth gameplay! Pre-launch testing has already proven it to be a studio favorite.

Oh, and did we mention the fact that the map is riddled with mines that kill you instantly on contact?

An interesting prospect, right? So why are you still reading? Get out there and get busy flying or die trying (the latter is the more likely).

Have fun pilots!

Total Recall – Live the Valkyrie Life



We are aware that a lot of Valkyrie pilots jump straight into multiplayer gaming, high on the prospect of a get-rich-quick, no-guts-no-glory approach to life. As we never tire of telling you, this is a foolhardy way to begin your EVE: Valkyrie experience. Instead, you should get into training via the training modules themselves, the Scout Mode and Test Arena where you can get to know the maps and play around with your weapons.

However, even before you do that, you should check out the Recall missions. They’re short but sweet, giving you a little bit of the history behind EVE: Valkyrie, while also introducing you to some of the play mechanics. The best thing about them is that they give you some insight into the battle raging in New Eden, so by playing them, you experience much more emotional investment in your subsequent battles.

Mission 1 – Station 27

Suspicious sensor readings trigger a fighter squadron to recon the long abandoned and infamous Station 27 complex.

Goal: This first Recall mission is merely an introduction to the game. It occurs at a point following Rán's death and it’s up to you and your teammates, Kal and Nas, to carry on the fight. At this point you are only able to steer and roll the ship and listen to the dialogue. Towards the end of the stage, you come under attack and while you are then able to use your weapons, they have no effect as you are very swiftly killed. A brutal introduction to the game.

Mission 2 – Esmes III

A Federation convoy thunders towards the FEDCAF Logistics Tower anchored in low orbit around Esmes III. Join the support squad under the leadership of Rán Kavik and protect the fleet through this dangerous system.

Goal: We take a step back in time for this episode. Lieutenant Kavik is still alive and as she says at the outset, your reputation is everything. It’s your life beyond death. This is essentially an escort mission, at least to begin with. Follow Rán through the fleet of ships. In terms of training, with this episode you get to fly in formation and use your boost to keep up with the rest of the team. Unfortunately, things go south pretty quickly as a bunch of enemy ships warp into view. What follows is a deadly skirmish in which you get to attack as many enemies as possible before ultimately getting killed. It’s kind of like an introduction to proper combat… a mini Survival Mode if you will.

Mission 3 – Trojan Fleet

Fatal has his eye on a Caldari shipyard in orbit around the planet Saranen and puts a plan in motion to take it for the Schism. Using stolen ships, you join a supply convoy making its way past the minefield and into the heart of the station.

Goal: OK, we’ve switched sides now and we’re fighting alongside Fatal for the Schism faction. Fatal is looking for a stronghold and his target is a Caldari shipyard. This mission serves the purpose of introducing the player to a Control Mode situation. At the start you have to fly in formation, following the green (unarmed) mines and avoiding the red (explosive) ones. Once at the shipyard, there’s a skirmish before you head in and plant communication devices at three points on the map.

Mission 4 – The First Assault

A nearby carrier has arrived to protect the Caldari station, the only thing standing between you and control of the sector. With the information from the Quartermaster, Fatal launches an all-out assault on the shipyard, with you leading the charge.

Goal: Again we are working with Fatal and completing our mission to secure the Shipyard map. Having reopened communications, the Caldari have deployed a Carrier ship and it’s up to you and your teammates to take it out. That’s right, it’s Carrier Assault Mode. It also sets the scene for the action that will take place when you take on real-world opponents in Valkyrie’s multiplayer modes.

Enjoy the Recall missions and be sure to seek out the Echoes in Scout Mode to discover even more about EVE: Valkyrie’s backstory.

Fly safe!

The Story


Cold. Disorientated. You awake in a clone tank.

As you look around you see the frosted silhouettes of other pilots jolting to life. A memory repeats over and over in your mind. The memory of your death. Unknowingly, and against your will, you've been recruited - stolen from your previous life and re-purposed at the hands of a man known only as Fatal.

Using illegal tech, he is stealing the consciousnesses of dying fighter pilots and inserting them into specially designed clones at the point of death.

Rán Kavik was one of the first to undergo this process but broke away when she discovered the truth behind her death. She was not saved by the notorious Guristas, but had in fact been targeted and killed by them. As had all the Valkyrie.Tough, independent and driven, she is now waging a private war against her former clan as well as the corporation that she blames for the downfall of her family.

Today, Rán leads the Valkyrie. They roam the heavens in the dark, lawless regions of New Eden. Their survival is not certain, their enemies are many. But they are faster, deadlier and more unrelenting than anything out there. The Valkyrie have scores to settle and are dying for a fight. Join them in the next life.
