Game News EVE Online Fanfest 2022: A more accessible future for new players and more substantial for veterans?
After several years, the famous Fanfest of fans of the Icelandic CCP’s massively multiplayer online space role-playing game, EVE Online, is back. The opportunity for JV to take a guided tour on site to attend the convention and understand the evolutions of this futuristic universe that wants to be more and more open…
That’s why Fanfest 2022 is currently taking place in Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. This is the annual event dedicated to the online gaming community of PCB, EVE Online, released on May 6, 2003 on PC, 19 years ago. For the twentieth anniversary of this title, it was therefore important to set the record straight and get the message across that: this game is here for a long timebut not alone…
New players in New Eden
So the Keynote at EVE Online was an opportunity to remind us that the game has been available for several years and that it’s time to revise certain things in order to attract or retain new players† The tutorial overhaul has already partially taken place and will follow newcomers through a multi-act scripted story, the Arcs, with prominent protagonists to better immerse players. In addition, there is a system of talents and specialties that is much more digestible and understandable to find your place more easily in this universe† Summarized, it becomes easier to know what you want to do and how it is possible through quests with a clear goal. All of this, of course, will lead to changes in the global space and, most importantly, the corporations (understanding the guilds) to integrate the great strategists of New Eden and execute large-scale strategies to better explore the galaxy. , don’t abuse it.
In this regard, the level of dedication required in EVE Online is colossal and requires a lot of organization, both in terms of players and resources, to realize its ambitions in the galaxy. And that’s why CCP announces surprising collaboration with Excel, yes the Microsoft software, to better process the data to get a clearer picture of your company’s assets, acquisitions, and harvests. But this new option will also be useful on a single player scale to properly manage their own food.
Easy to play, hard to master
Here’s a mantra that will remind you of something and that should apply to EVE Online, if we are to believe the developers at CCP. So if new players are pampered in the coming years, that’s the future, there’s no doubt about it, the veterans, understand very dedicated players, have not forgotten, even if their numbers dwindle over time. So can they soon enjoy a system to rearrange their talents to change their path and finally explore the universe in a different way† Good news that proves that no one should be forgotten in EVE Online for years to come. Another important point to note, the faction wars will be renewed† The goal is to encourage action on battlefields that can last several weeks to conquer more and more space. Thus, the systems at war on the frontiers will become areas important enough for players to visit often and engage in battle… As you will have understood, player-vs-player confrontations still have a bright future for themselves in EVE Online.
EVE Online conquers the world
After rolling out on the Epic Games Store and Mac, EVE Online is getting a foothold in Asia and coming soon, which was kind of one of the big announcements at the conference, in the Spanish language. Suffice it to say that if some like to think that EVE Online is an old game at the end of its career, it seems increasingly clear that the future is moving at CCP† The arrival of the game in a localized version in new areas always brings some of the beginners that it will now be easier to train and get used to the functioning of the title with the new tutorial system and a much more pleasant user interface and above all, practical.
We end by saying that: EVE Online benefits from promising graphics improvements and that the ability to customize its devices and buildings is coming. This should appeal to regulars. Finally, keep in mind that CCP’s massively multiplayer online role-playing game NFTs is investigating, but has absolutely no plans to use them in-game, as the community clearly wants.
