EVE Online’s mobile spin-off is called EVE: War of Ascension
While the existence of a mobile game set in the EVE Online universe isn’t a secret at this point — having been revealed all the way back at EVE Vegas last October — the name of the project was. Now the veil has been lifted, and what was once simply known as “Project Aurora” has been revealed to be EVE: War of Ascension.

CCP is developing the game in conjunction with Kongregate and PlayRaven with the intention of releasing it to iOS and Android devices later in 2018.

EVE: War of Ascension isn’t linked to the main MMO but will lift its aesthetics and themes. Players will mostly focus on social alliances and conflicts using the game’s strategic, hex-structured board. If you’re the type of player who loves helping his or her corporation fight, climb, and backstab to the top, this might be ideal for you.

The reveal of the mobile title’s name does leave one tantalizing piece of info dangling. Apparently CCP filed a trademark for something called Project Foundation, which some players had previously thought would be the name of the mobile game. Now, all bets are off as to what this may be.

Surprised that CCP didn’t make this game until now. You’d think that a mobile version of EVE Online with less complexity and more casualness would attract alot more players than EVE.

I’ll admit, I’m cautiously optimistic, but I’ve never been one for mobile games. This may potentially be a first for me if monetization isn’t too bad.

Ah, a competitive mobile game. Much like Fortnite, Lineage 2 or PUBG. No one with a sense of competition is playing these games on a mobile device unless it’s got bluetooth mouse and keyboard support. It’s all played on a PC being emulated.

Pretty much yeah.

That is undoubtedly true for the people and countries represented here.

However, globally that is obviously not true. There is a mobile LoL clone that has 200 MAU – 200 million people played it in a month. So that means that a single one “of these games” has many more players than LoL/PC and all westerns MMOs combined. A single mobile game probably has more players than all “real” PC games combined.

the idea of playing a mobile game with a keyboard and mouse is cheating is confusing to me: the idea playing a game with touch controls on your way home, then tossing your phone on your desk and having it synch up to your monitor, keyboard, and mouse, would be a desirable thing for game publishers and cellphone makers to go after.

It is possible. Get a device with HDMI output and use a bluetooth mouse and keyboard and you can have your smartphone or tablet on a big screen with keyboard and mouse controls.

I’m not so sure about whether you will find software to force games made for touch controls to work with a keyboard+mouse, as I never went after those, but it wouldn’t be surprised if some of those existed. After all, it’s the same idea and methods used by those apps that allow joysticks to be used with games that only offer touch controls.

Having played the prototype at EVE Vegas, I can tell you that the mobile game was not twitch based, so using a keyboard and mouse wouldn’t make much sense. The game reminded me more of Stellaris than anything else.
