Hi Pilots,

Today’s the day! It’s exactly a year ago today the EVE: Valkyrie’s Carrier Assault Mode was launched, and true to @CCP_Kane‘s word, we’re going to celebrate it in some considerable style.



First up, as we promised last week, today is going to be all about Carrier Assault with the play mode being available all day in multiplayer mode. It all kicked off this morning and it’ll run up until 08:00 UTC tomorrow (21st Jun).

We’ve also just released a brand new track to our soundcloud, the incredible ‘Tempest’ by Rich Macoull of The East Wing:

For more information on what goes on behind the scenes composing EVE: Valkyrie’s incredible music tracks, head over to our Carrier Assault day celebration blog for an interview with Rich, and don’t forget to tweet your favorite carrier assault moments with #ValkyrieCADay to join the party.

Enjoy a full day of Carrier Destruction!

Carrier Assault Day – Anniversary Event

@CCP_Kane wrote:



It’s coming up to a year since EVE: Valkyrie’s Carrier Assault mode was introduced, so we thought it might be fun to mark the moment with a few celebratory events.

Carrier Assault… All Day!

To kick things off, June 20th is ‘Carrier Assault Day’ and we will be celebrating by making Carrier Assault available to play all day in multiplayer. The fun starts at 08:00 UTC on 20th Jun 2017 and finishes 24 hours later, so fire up Valkyrie for some intense, non-stop Carrier Assault action.

Music and More

That’s not all, though. We will also be releasing a superb Carrier Assault soundtrack, composed by Rich McCoull, to Soundcloud to mark the occasion.

In addition, throughout the week we will be running a series of mini masterclasses on how to increase your chances of victory in Carrier Assault battles, from the perspective of Fighter, Support and Heavy pilots.

Share Your Assaults

No EVE: Valkyrie celebration would be complete without our loyal and enthusiastic community of pilots, so we want you to get involved. Over the coming weekend, we would like you to share your screens, videos and experiences of playing Carrier Assault using the hashtag #ValkyrieCADay. We will feature our favorites in Tuesday’s celebrations.

Break the Record

One last thing, some of you may remember a recent article in which we showcased a video of a team of Valkyrie pilots completing a Carrier Assault run in under two minutes. It seems a good time for that record to be broken, so consider this the throwing down of the gauntlet. Use Carrier Assault Day to attempt a new world record and if anyone can pull it off, we’ll publish the results later in the week.

Fly Safe!

Hi Pilots,


CCP Games is celebrating its 20th Anniversary this weekend so we will be kicking back at the Crow’s Nest in order to celebrate our part in this remarkable story. We have a PlayStation Controller giveaway, Double XP all weekend, and a particularly lethal wormhole :wink:


You can find more info on EVE: Valkyrie’s Anniversary celebrations here.


Don’t forget, Double XP and the chaotic Wormhole run from today, Friday June 2nd, to Monday June 5th. The fun started at 9:00 UTC today and goes on until 09:00 UTC on Monday. During that time, you will be awarded double XP after every battle you participate in.



Before we take our leave we want to hand over to CCP Games’ CEO Hilmar Petursson, who has a message of thanks for you all:

Special thanks to all of you who have joined us on this journey,
Have a great weekend and we’ll see you on the other side!

CCP 20th Anniversary Double XP Weekend

@CCP_Redcape wrote:



Good news everyone!

This coming weekend marks the 20th Anniversary of CCP Games and we think that’s something worth celebrating.

It’s been a heck of a story and you can read about it in more detail in our 20th Anniversary article.

But back to those celebrations, as part of the festivities we are setting up one of our Double XP Weekend events to run from Friday June 2nd to Monday June 5th. The fun starts at 9:00 UTC on Friday and you will be awarded double XP after every battle you participate in, right up until 9:00 UTC on Monday. Pretty awesome, right?

Plus, if you’re new to Valkyrie, you should know that by registering with us and linking your pilot with a CCP account, you can get more free stuff. By doing so, you will get an immediate seven-day XP boost via an in-game implant. The great thing is you can use it at the same time as taking advantage of the Double XP Weekend. So, link your account by the weekend and you can clean up when it comes to gathering all that extra experience.

Also, you’ll become the proud owner of a cool Ember paint job for your ships.

Find out how to register and link your pilot to a CCP account in our guide, right here.

Thanks again for joining us on this remarkable ride.

Have a great weekend and fly safe!
