EVE Online's Project Nova team faced a lot of 'harsh realities' that made them press the pause button

Back in April of 2016, Project Nova, CCP's second foray into the EVE Online-related shooter genre, looked like a healthy, vibrant game....at least on paper. As Jean-Charles Gaudechon, managing director at CCP Shanghai explains it, "We ...   read

EVE: Valkyrie has avoided extinction in a somewhat sterile VR realm

Having been there since the start of high-end consumer VR, I've seen many projects and developers come and go. Whereas DLC is the norm for successful games in the traditional space, early on in the race you'd frequently see studios sing fro...   read

EVE producer: 'An EVE Online 2.0 wouldn't make any sense'

It's been roughly five months since EVE Online went free-to-play, and developer CCP seems to be pretty happy about how it's went so far -- at least on the surface. "We were super nervous, both internally and externally in terms of our playe...   read

Sparc, CCP's first non-EVE game, is shaping up as a real sport

For CCP, a company that made $86 million in revenue last year, getting out of the EVE comfort zone is a pretty big deal. Sparc (not to be confused with Project Spark) is doing just that, with the aim of providing an entire new VR-centr...   read

EVE: Valkyrie is getting another big update, Groundrush, next week

Today during their EVE Fanfest keynote in Iceland, CCP announced that EVE: Valkyrie, their VR combat spinoff, is getting its first big update (for me anyway, as there's technically five so far) on April 11 across all platforms (Vive, R...   read

Permaband, CCP's over-the-top in-house music group, is heading to Rock Band 4

In case you haven't noticed, in-house development studio bands have been a popular practice as of late. Square Enix has the rock group The Primals, and CCP, developer of EVE Online, has the slightly less conventional group "Permaband." Whil...   read

The EVE Online monument: same as it ever was

This is not my beautiful house! No, I'm in the hamlet city of Reykjavik, Iceland for my first EVE Fanfest and coincidentally, my first visit to the country. I've seen the myriad pictures for the monument before, but it was fascinating ...   read

CCP's new game is a virtual sport called Sparc

After 13 years, EVE Online goes free-to-play today

For 13 long years, EVE Online has subsisted solely on a subscription model. All those capsuleers were paying $15 per month for access to New Eden's universe. That changes today. In late August, developer CCP announced that the Novembe...   read

EVE Online has no problem getting new players, but retaining them is a hell of an issue

"It's super depressing," Andie Nordgren said with a sort of semi-defeated smile. She's the executive producer of EVE Online, one of the deepest and most complex sandbox video games in existence, and she's reacting to a key statistic that de...   read

EVE Online developer has the right attitude about making sandbox games

Earlier this week, the Citadel expansion came to EVE Online. Two years ago, developer CCP moved toward releasing more frequent updates for the game, so this type of event is a relatively regular occurrence. Citadel, however, is a prett...   read

CCP's new first-person shooter on PC aims to get right what Dust 514 didn't

Give me a punk rock EVE Fanfest
