CCP was formed in 1996 and released EVE Online in the early days of massively multiplayer online games in 2003. Over the intervening years, EVE has been in aggressive and continuous development, continuing to win awards and make headlines thanks to its vibrant player-led stories as one of the most unique games on the market. It was added to the permanent collection at The Museum of Modern Art in the inaugural group of 14 videogames lauded for their design, and, come the November 15th EVE Online: Ascension expansion, will offer the ability to play for absolutely free with the arrival of the Clone States feature and other huge additions to the game. Since 2003, CCP has released more games to the EVE universe and leads the new frontier in virtual reality experiences with EVE: Valkyrie and Gunjack.
During the massive, annual gathering of its players in Reykjavik, Iceland, home of the EVE Online development team, fans celebrate the virtual worlds of the EVE universe in a grand style. This year CCP is promising an extra-impressive EVE Fanfest for EVE Online capsuleers, EVE: Valkyrie pilots, Gunjack turret operators and their friends and family at the stunning Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Center.
Unique Fanfest events will supplement keynotes, panels, development presentations, PvP tournaments, game demos, round tables, a developer-led pub crawl, the infamous Party on Top of the World, and unprecedented access to the company’s development teams.
Celebrating the CONCORD theme for EVE Fanfest 2017, players who purchase tickets before January 1st will get a unique CONCORD Enforcer cruiser, all Fanfest attendees will get a CONCORD Pacifier Frigate, and those that attend Fanfest and EVE Vegas 2017 will get a CONCORD Marshal Battleship. The ships will also be available to the rest of the EVE community via different means later in the year.
More announcements about the beefed-up EVE Fanfest 2017 will be made over the next several months, as well as the schedule for the free livestream.
