You may recall at GDC EVE Aether Wars made headlines when 14,274 people were all logged in to a single instance, multi-region game world. Well now on November 23rd during the EVE London meetup at London’s O2 Arena and all across the internet you will have the chance to take part in a world record attempt. Their aim is to break the record for the largest fight ever in gaming. If you want to be part of this record-breaking event you can pre-register to take part by adding the game to your wishlist on Steam. Yeah, it seems like it is going to be that easy. The record that they’re trying to beat is actually already held by EVE players. That’s the Battle of B-R5RB which had 6,142 players on 23 January 2018.
That isn’t the only news to come out of EVE Vegas so far either. NetEase and CCP have announced that the open beta for EVE Echoes will be in December 2019 for iOS and Android.
“We’re very excited for the first public outing of EVE Echoes, the next revolutionary step in mobile MMO gaming,” said Hilmar V. Petursson, CEO of CCP Games. “I can’t wait to see the reaction from our core PC players, who will no doubt recognize the unparalleled scale and sophisticated gameplay of EVE Online’s virtual world running through the veins of EVE Echoes.”
“CCP Games is a pioneer in space MMOs, and will make its mark on the industry even further by expanding the EVE experience to mobile with EVE Echoes,” said Ethan Wang, Vice President of NetEase, Inc. “Combining CCP’s leadership in game design with our NeoX game engine and leadership in game publishing will no doubt create a spacefaring sandbox MMO for mobile devices unlike anything seen before.”
