CCP, the developer of EVE Online, has announced that Katee Sackhoff will star in its upcoming VR project, EVE: Valkyrie. Sackhoff, who appeared as Starbuck in SyFy’s Battlestar Galactica, will voice a character named Rán.

Sackhoff is no stranger to science fiction, having also appeared in Riddick and Star Wars: The Clone Wars. EVE: Valkyrie, which we’ve demoed multiple times, is in development for Oculus Rift on PC and Sony’s Project Morpheus on PlayStation 4.


Our Take
I continue to keep my excitement for EVE Valkyrie in check, not because I don’t want to play (oh my do I want to play it), but because I know the consumer tech to do so is still a ways off. That said, I really like Katee Sackhoff and getting her on board is a great call.
