CCP shines a spotlight on EVE Updates

Longer than it is wide.

Today’s EVE Online website update is about, well EVE Updates. It’s basically a new section of the EVE site devoted to what’s coming next in CCP’s sci-fi sandbox. “From now on, all information about upcoming changes to EVE Online can be found on EVE Updates – and as we announce features, we will put information about them there,” CCP says. “For each date where we are making an Update to EVE Online, you’ll see a section with the features that are coming on that date. Bigger updates will get a code-name once the main features are locked in.”

The devs will continue to do larger code deployments approximately every five weeks, but they will also be releasing smaller features in between the bigger drops. All of this stuff necessitates a new way to communicate changes on an ongoing basis, which is where EVE Updates comes in.

Let’s see here…. a one month, unlimited play time subscription costs $14.95. Going to the movies on a Saturday night to see a two hour movie will cost right about the same.Everything boils down to the perception of how much you value entertainment. If playing Eve for a month isn’t as entertaining to you as going to a movie one time then yeah, I can see your point.

To me, MMO’s are the BEST entertainment value for the money. Pay a flat fee, and play as much/little as you want during the one month period.

Boardwalker I start playing EVE in 2004 and it’s a great game. I couldn’t play as much as I wanted back then because of the subscription plan (younger without money). Now I can afford it but I don’t have enough time to play and get the most from a subscription. I tried Elite, I might come back to it in a few years when they will have more content and I’m a SC backer (Admiral lvl).
  I had an successful attempt to pay my subscription with PLEX but is too time consuming and it become more like a job than a game.

Cosstarica  So you want a free game that is twitch based and set in space. If you don’t need it to also be an MMORPG, why not try Elite:Dangerous or SC?

The only update that will make me come back is dropping the subscription or somehow link the game with a successful Valkyrie or Project Legion.

That’s actually a fine and long-overdue idea.  Their main site is a complete clusterfluff.  ;)

Now if only there were some positive human interest stories coming out of this game to balance off 12 years of psychos, lol….

Blackomen your sarcasm is misplaced. More like they now have a place to tell you how they’re making the game prettier and fine tuning things but will never actually show you any innovation that makes the game shockingly better/different

Wonderful, now they have a place to announce the new stuff they are adding to the game to sell in the cash shop. /Sarcasm
