EVE Online: Avatars Incoming

Posted Thu, Apr 24, 2008 by Morvelaira

The need for fashion comes to EVE Online.

The developers at CCP are furiously working on their new Ambulatory system, which will give characters avatars when in space stations. This is meant to open up a new, but non-necesary soical aspect to the game.

The initial concept of ambulation is simply to provide a social space for players. As they said at Fanfest, why would you socialize while mining for ore out in space when you could socialize at over a beer. The system is designed so that players never have to walk around on stations to be successful in the game. It’s more like the addition of a new social utility to the existing game-play. They’ll be phasing in more options and activities after the initial launch, which has yet to be announced, and the new options will mainly be driven by player demand.
