EVE Online FanFest: The Technology Behind Trinity's Delivery
CCP has put a lot of thought into how best to deliver the huge Trinity
patch to hundreds of thousands of gamers around the world when EVE
Online's next expansion launches soon. How you'll get Trinity, plus a
little of what you can expect to see around the periphery of the game
when the expansion launches, is what you'll find in our latest article
from EVE Online FanFest in Reykjavik, Iceland.
Starting with the first Trinity upgrade, two patches
will be offered,
confusingly termed Classic and Premium (either version is nonetheless
free with your EVE Online subscription). Both versions will
utilize the same codebase, both will receive the same bugfixes; the
only difference is graphics.
