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,…

Eve Online NPCs strike back against player-run empires

CCP's Darwinist sandbox space sim Eve Online is at war. Well, slightly more war than usual, and for once it's not just between player-run power blocs. As reported by Steven Messner over on RPS fan-site PC Gamer, player-made stations out in lawless 'nullsec' space are coming under siege. The culprits? The Drifters, a cyborg NPC faction introduced in the Ascension expansion. Until recently, players had…

Eve Online’s Triglavians are coming to get ya in the new expansion

They've been a-lurking for a while, those Triglavians. Loitering in a corner of Abyssal Deadspace, minding their own business. Biding their time, building big scary spaceships. I think they're just about done. Eve Online's PvE-focused Invasion expansion ventured out yesterday - as did the Triglavians. New Eden will never be the same again, say CCP, as the boundaries between Deadspace and regular, doing-just-fine-thanks-space begin to…

EVE Online unbans lobbyist wrongly accused of sharing insider information

When Eve Online banned a real-world political lobbyist over alleged in-game corruption earlier this month, wags like yours truly fell over ourselves all "haha yeah a corrupt lobbyist big surprise lol roflmao." Laugh those arses back on, friends. CCP Games now say they were wrong, that Brian Schoeneman (known by the spacename "Brisc Rubal") did not abuse his position on the spaceship MMO's official player…

Eve Online bans real-world lobbyist over alleged in-game corruption

Today, cutthroat sandbox MMO Eve Online further blurs the line between reality and game. Developers CCP have brought down the ban-hammer on Brian Schoeneman, US maritime law lobbyist outside of the game, and elected official "Brisc Rubal" within. The reason: Corruption, announcing that Schoeneman abused his position as a Council Of Stelllar Management member to share "confidential information" that allowed another player to "conduct illicit…

Eve Online devs CCP invite players to a 10,000+ player space-brawl

Six thousand, one hundred and forty-two - the current Guinness world record for most players involved in a single fight in an online game, attributed to sandbox space-sim Eve Online. Developers CCP aren't going to just sit back and let someone else take a shot at their record. Instead, they're partnering with Hadean (specialists in cloud-based networking) to bring us Aether Wars. It'll be a…

Eve Online devs CCP being bought by Black Desert Online company

CCP Games, the Icelandic mob who make spacebastard sandbox Eve Online, are being bought up by the South Korean lot behind Black Desert Online (that MMORPG with the weird and wonderful character creator). Pearl Abyss are to pay $425 million (about £330m) for CCP, with the plan that CCP will continue to run and work on their own games while also lending their expertise to…

Doomsday lasers light up the galaxy in Eve’s most destructive battle in four years

The galactic war of Eve Online chunders on. A massive battle on Wednesday ended in the destruction of over 50 Titans, the game’s biggest, most expensive warships. The laser-laden space ruckus occurred when a huge fleet of ships appeared close to a Keepstar (a giant and powerful space station) prompting defenders of the space station to scramble their pilots and brace themselves for an assault.…

Hundreds of pilots trapped by space scumbags in Eve Online’s latest galactic war

“If your enemy logs off, make sure they can’t log on.” - Sun Tzu, ancient Chinese general and fan of Eve Online. Yes, the space warfare MMO is once again full of exploding spaceships thanks to a new war between two large blocs of corporate murder fans. It’s as convoluted as any other conflict in this game of moneymaking and military skulduggery, but basically: a…

Eve Online FPS spin-off Project Nova is still coming

Since the final death of CCP's World Of Darkness MMO, whenever the Eve Online studio go quiet about other in-development games I start to suspect they've smothered them too. They had been slipping into a similar pattern with Project Nova, the multiplayer first-person shooter set in the world of Eve, but now say "we're looking forward to unveiling the game properly" later this year -…

EVE Online to axe voice chat during its back-end revamp

Sometimes you need to take a step back to take two forward, and sometimes your server infrastructure is such a colossal mess of interconnected software systems that you just have to hack out a bloody great chunk of it before anything can be improved. In order to upgrade their server software to 64-bit standard, EVE Online studio CCP are officially saying goodbye to Eve Voice,…

CCP reveal plans to crack down on EVE Online botters

Like a lot of online games, EVE Online has a problem with botters - players who create automated bots to slave away in the asteroid mines. That problem only got worse since the MMO introduced its free-to-play 'Alpha Clone' accounts. Pressure from fans has led to this recent update on the EVE Online blog, in which creators CCP outline the state of the botting problem,…

EVE developer CCP hiring for a ‘new and ambitious’ MMO

Sometimes, a single job posting can tell you a lot about the future of a studio. In the case of CCP's latest position listing, it's quite explicit. They're looking to hire an experienced lead designer to head up production in London on an as-yet-announced MMO. While thin on fine details, we can at least infer some interesting details about the Eve Online studio's short-term plans, and…

EVE Online’s free-to-play Arms Race update is live

EVE Online’s ‘Alpha Clone’ accounts have gotten a major upgrade today, bringing the sprawling space sandbox one step closer to free-to-play. Alpha accounts are essentially trial accounts, letting players experience EVE Online forever, but with some strict limitations in terms of ships, weapons and skills. The Arms Race update pulls back some of these limitations, letting free players finally flit about in higher tier ships…

EVE developers CCP pulling out of VR

CCP, creators of one of our favourite VR games, EVE Valkyrie, are ceasing all VR development, according to a report on Icelandic business site mbl.is. The Reykjavík-based studio is best-known for its fantastically complex MMO EVE Online but has invested heavily in VR games. Sci-fi dogfighting sim Valkyrie is its flagship goggle-game, but one-on-one ball-lobbing sport Sparc (currently PSVR only) is a bit of a…
