CCP Games dropped an epic Valkyrie video, showed us Ran and more.
Rán is the leader of the Valkyrie pilots, and her backstory will be introduced through a series of comics coming out later this year. Since she needed a face for the comics, CCP came up with one based off the concept of someone wraith-like and ethereal.
Next up they showed off a gameplay trailer; while a video can't quite capture the VR experience, the crowd loved it enough to demand an encore.
Finally, CCP announced that there will be a very selective, limited pre-alpha testing phase. You will obviously need a VR headset to participate and you can signup now on the official site.
The EVE Online keynote is still scheduled for later today at 10am PT/1pm ET, and will be livestreamed on the CCP Games Twitch channel.
