  • A New PCU Record - Close to 33,000 Users

    The official site for EVE Online has been updated with a note about their new PCU (Peak Concurrent User) record.

    A new peak concurrent user record was set Sunday, Dec 3rd when 32,955 users were logged into EVE Online: Revelations. This would not be that significant if not for the outstanding performance the Tranquility server demonstrated under this enormous load. According to preliminary log analysis the server cluster was at 47% capacity - A clear indication that the new Revelation expansion along with the accompanying hardware upgrades has brought the cluster to a new level.

  • Nathan "Oveur" Richardsson made the announcement during his "The Fifth Horsemen" presentation this afternoon in Reykjavik at EVE FanFest 2006 - CCP is aiming to release Revelations, aka Kali Release 1, on November 28th, 2006. If problems still exist, naturally they may remain in testing and push that date back, but at least now we have a moving target. Get your vacation or sick days at work lined up now, eh?

    Even more exciting, CCP CEO Hilmar "Hellmar" Petursson announced that CCP Games and White Wolf Publishing, Inc. have made definitive plans to merge! White Wolf Prez Mike Tinney was on hand to comment and affirm the new arrangement at EVE FanFest 2006:

    Reykjavik, Iceland and Atlanta, GA, USA – November 11, 2006 - CCP hf. and White Wolf Publishing, Inc. today announced that the companies have entered into a definitive agreement to merge. The creators of the single largest persistent online role-playing world and the world’s second-largest developer of offline role-playing, strategy and collectable card games will create the industry’s largest independent Virtual World developer. CCP is the publisher and developer of EVE Online, the world’s largest virtual gaming universe. White Wolf is the creator of some of the world’s most recognized role-playing titles including: World of Darkness (Vampire, Werewolf, Mage) and Exalted. The combined company will introduce new online and offline gaming products across the science-fiction, horror, and fantasy genres.

    The merged company will enable CCP to integrate White Wolf’s leading expertise in offline gaming development to enhance and create physical products for its MMOG, EVE Online. Products to be introduced in 2007 will include strategy guides, enhanced collectable card games, role-playing systems, and novels all based on EVE Online. White Wolf will leverage CCP’s industry-leading technologies to bring its offline role-playing titles online. Conceptualization and early development has begun to bring White Wolf’s World of Darkness, one of the world’s strongest gaming properties, into the online world.

    “White Wolf possesses the RPG industry’s leading offline gaming talent and some of the most recognizable roleplaying properties in the world,” said Hilmar Petursson, CCP’s Chief Executive Officer. " Virtual worlds are a new form of entertainment, separate from traditional computer games. By combining forces, we will create a company unsurpassed in quality, innovation, and scope which will keep us at the forefront of this emerging trend."

    The combined company will continue to operate under their respective names. White Wolf will be operated as a wholly-owned subsidiary of CCP. Hilmar Petursson, Chief Executive Officer of CCP, will be CEO of the combined company. Mike Tinney, President of White Wolf, will continue as President of the independent subsidiary. Further, White Wolf will continue development and enhancement of their entire portfolio of gaming products.

    “CCP brings industry-leading technical expertise and online game development experience to us,” said Mike Tinney, White Wolf’s President. "Together, we will create the industry’s most innovative games leveraging both online and offline systems."
