Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff joins EVE: Valkyrie cast

Banking back towards Starbuck territory, Katee Sackhoff will appear in CCP's virtual reality title EVE: Valkyrie.

The Battlestar Galactica star's involvement was revealed at the developer's Fanfest event in Iceland. She will provide voice acting for the lead character Rán.

“The first time I played Eve: Valkyrie I immediately knew I had to be a part of it,” said Sackhoff.

“Even with the roles I have played, it is the closest I have ever felt to being a real spaceship pilot. It is a truly transformative video game experience."

CCP also revealed it has ditched Unity in favour of Unreal Engine 4 for the upcoming VR space dogfighter.

As reported by PCWorld, the change was revealed during the developer’s Fanfest event in Iceland. During the keynote the studio said most of the team had experience with Unreal from Dust 514, so it made sense for the team to move away from Unity.

Eve: Valkyrie is currently being developed at CCP’s UK studio in Newcastle.
