EVE Online’s colossal player-built stations are starting to decay

Since their introduction in 2016, citadels have defined the cut-throat politics of EVE Online. Wars are now centred on slugfests like the Battle for X47L-Q, as Keepstar citadels provide insurmountable defences against all but the most determined force. But developers CCP now reckon there are too many of these unassailable bastions floating about unguarded. With this week's Forsaken Fortress update, it's time to let these…

Eve Online’s Triglavian invasion finale kicks off today

Space conniving sim Eve Online will round off celebrations for its 17th birthday by bringing an end to the Invasion update with a massive invasion.Newbie void villains, the Triglavians, have been vaguely menacing players for almost a year, but they're about to arrive in force, starting a war with regular space that players can join on either side. The outcome of all this will depend…

13 moral lessons from PC games

When the historians of the future cast their cyber-eyes over the deluge of stupidity we encrusted upon the primitive internet, they will see that our fables, our moral storytelling, was mostly conducted with flashing colours and double-jumps. Yes, videogames have adopted the moralistic finger-wagging of fairytales and Victorian novels, for better or for worse. They have taught us a lot about ourselves and our place…

9 game characters who refuse to die

Let us wish a blessed Good Friday to all the Catholics in the house. Now, get out. Your fish-sharing magician cannot compete with these 9 videogame characters who see death as nothing but a passing nuisance. These 9 heroes of reanimated flesh. These 9 unkillable beings of limitless power and mystery. Where is your precious Holy Spirit now, loser? Look at these 9 luminous freaks…

EVE Online prepares for dying stars, alien invasions and charity fund-raising

Thursday should've been the highlight of the EVE Online calendar. But even with EVE Fanfest's cancellation, the next few months are set to be big ones for New Eden with Eclipse, EVE's second quadrant of the year. An extragalactic invasion comes to a head with star-snuffing starships, interstellar easter egg hunts, and a charity drive to use all those spacebucks you've amassed for real-world good.

We talked to Eve Online’s devs about faction warfare, Loyalty To Lowsec and other seasonal updates

CCP, the developers of the famously complicated space MMO Eve Online, have taken a new approach to their updates in recent months. They've split each year into three-month 'quadrants', during which they'll release smaller, more regular features and changes along a common theme - not unlike 'seasons' as used by many other online games. The first of these quadrants, titled Fight Or Flight, began this…

Video games to play while you’re self isolating and social distancing

Unless you're in one of those international versions of Big Brother that are still going on, you've probably noticed that we're in the midst of a pandemic of something called the Covid-19 virus. I can tell it's serious because my dad's American girlfriend isn't allowed to visit him, which means he's bored and phoning me in the middle of the day. Haha, I joke. But…

Sometimes a bad decision in Eve Online costs 150 billion

One of Eve Online's longest term players has made a dubious name for himself by forgetting the golden rule: don't fly what you can't afford to lose. This Tuesday, a pilot named "Lactose Intolerant" made the timeless mistake of transporting valuable cargo through a 'safe' area of space without taking proper precautions, like not doing that. The result was a ganking that cost him the…

CCP announced today that in order to prioritise the safety of attendees, staff, and the local community, Eve Fanfest 2020 is being cancelled. The event was scheduled for April 2-4 in Reykjavik, Iceland.

EVE Online will let you hide a frigate inside your battleship, for emergencies

Dang it, you've sunk my battleship. It's fine, it had a smaller boat inside it all along. No, that's definitely how the game Battleships work. I know what I'm talking about. Time was in EVE Online, losing your spaceship meant losing the fight. But CCP are mixing up intergalactic PVP by announcing new Frigate Escape Bays - getting you back in the fight by turning…

CCP cancel Project Nova, but haven’t given up on an EVE Online shooter

Another EVE Online spin-off has bitten the dust. Project Nova, CCP's latest attempt to put their expansive universe in front of the barrel of a rifle, has joined Dust 514 and EVE: Valkyrie on the intergalactic scrapheap. The devs haven't quite given up on a boots-on-the-ground galaxy entirely. They've still got a team down in London plugging away at that problem. But for all intents…

A DDOS attack has kept many Eve Online players offline for over a week

Players started (figuratively) falling out of the sky in Eve Online late last month. Many couldn't log in to the space faring MMO at all. Of those that could, plenty were unable to use the in game chat to coordinate with other pilots, which I'm given to understand is quite important for a space fleet. CCP Games say that stability is returning, but there are…

Game devs and players continue banding together to help the Australian bushfire crisis

Australia is still burning, but over the last couple of days they've actually had some rain! While this is a big help to certain areas, there are still 83 fires blazing around the country, and there's a lot of people and wildlife still in trouble. It's good job then that there are even more game devs, companies, and communities banding together to help out our…

Eve Online’s 10,000 player deathmatch returns this month

Want to know the dark truth behind Eve: Online's infamous mass battles? They're bloody awful spectator sports. CCP's space epic might be equipped to handle six-thousand players, but it's gotta make some serious compromises. At the end of the day, you're watching thousand of blips fire lasers in severe slow-motion. Aether Wars, a cloud-powered spin-off centred solely on these big brutal bashes, has proven twice…

EVE helps new pilots put together ships with a new Community Fittings tool

Last time I popped back into EVE Online's space I foolishly decided my beloved Ferox, an absolute unit of a battlecruiser, wasn't gonna cut it any more. Sorry, old girl, but you're covered in space-dirt. Leaving it behind in Teonusude, I flew off to pick up a sleek new Garmur. With smooth black curves and talon-like prongs, it's the sports car of interstellar travel. As…

Eve Online lifts nullsec blackout, ending experiment into chaos

Since July, players lurking in the darkest and crimeiest corners of Eve Online have been denied a valuable tool for surviving nullsec: seeing who else is in the same solar system. The "nullsec local blackout" meant that players had to speak in the local chat before they were counted and revealed to everyone else around, which made it a lot easier to lurk all sneaky-like.…

Eve Online to add “grief counselling” for players bereft of ships

When we last checked in with Eve Online, players were embroiled in a big space war with invading NPCs. We (I) fantasised about how the balance of power among Eve's eternally warring player factions would be forever altered, a Game Of Thrones style outside threat forcing alliances while, perhaps, encouraging betrayal. None of that really happened. With the war amounting to little more than a…

Eve: Aether Wars invites pilots to next month’s 10,000 player dogfight

Whew, hard to believe it, but this will be my last news post for RPS for the foreseeable future. Fitting, then, that it's about going large and loud and blotting out the heavens themselves with explosions. Eve: Aether Wars is a collaborative tech demo/stress test run by Eve Online developers CCP and cloud networking techies Hadean, researching new ways to cram even more players onto…

Eve Online’s Drifter invasion is mucking with the space telephone

Just over a week ago, thousands of NPC ships descended on Eve Online in an unprecedented invasion, forcing warring players to call off scuffles and defend their territory from the AI hordes. It's exciting, unless you're one of the understandably grumpy players who suddenly has to guard their faction's citadel from an enemy that doesn't sleep. As reported by Eve's in-fiction news show, The Scope,…
