Eve Online’s Odyssey Is A Bit 2001

By Jim Rossignol on June 3rd, 2013 at 10:00 am.


Tomorrow sees the arrival of the latest Eve Online update, called Odyssey (still down due to DDoS at the time of writing). There are some big changes in the expansion, including changes to scanning, exploration, and storyline missions. It will also rebalance the availability of ice, which will cause miners some grief, and allows limited dual character training, which will make everyone happy.

They’ve taken an interesting approach with the features video, which you can see below.

Thanks, Gamespot! I am only thanking Gamespot because CCP disabled embedding on their own video. Why? Why.

    This is one of the best EVE trailers ever! Like totally, lolo :D
    +100 points for not taking themselves too seriously this time around.

    On a side note: why won’t they close that damn game already? Every time i see some more news, trailers and info about i get this extreme urge to get back to playing it… Only i can’t anymore, so i end up slightly sad and irked.

    *sigh*

      If Eve had been around when I was 14, I would have loved it. As it is I plan to really get into it once I’m retired and all my friends are dead.

        I can offer reasonable rates. Not my own, of course, I don’t do my own “work”, but my man Smiggs the gardener can be remarkably discreet.

          I genuflect thrice in your general direction. You, sir, are a gem. In this instance, perhaps, a blood red ruby?

    For those who want a perfectly butchered version of that theme do check out 2001 Sprach Kazoostra, a true classic.

      Shaun Keaveny uses a particularly good version on his 6music show, normally when talking to Brian Cox

        Something tells me there’s probably quite an overlap between RPS readers and 6Music listeners.

      It sounds a bit like Portsmouth Sinfonia’s take on ‘Also Sprach Zarathustra’. Professional musicians, playing instruments they never played before.

    The thing that made me laugh was they bleeped one expletive, just follow up with a good dose of HTFU :) Look forward to playing with the new features.

    Now I have nostalgia for opening font files while poking around C:\WINDOWS circa 1996. Thanks, the internet, for proving there’s always a first time for everything.

    Is this the update all the ice miners are DDOSing CCP over?

    I really really hope that Stellar Shadows remix in the background is the new login screen music. As somebody who started in 2004, it brings back a lot of memories.
