  • GDC Progress Report: CCP and EVE Online

    MMORPG.com reports on EVE Online with this interview with CCP's Magnus Bergsson.

    EvE is a game about the future, and we were lucky enough to see the future of EvE this week here at GDC. I had the chance to sit down with CCP's Magnus Bergsson about what EvE will offer over the next year, some of the scandals that the game has seen, and get some early information on the White Wolf merger and games planned. CCP has a lot of work ahead of them and these guys seem to be ready for any challenge.

  • What's Next for EVE?

    What's next for EVE? That was the question we presented to Magnus Bersson, CMO of CCP Games. On Tuesday of GDC 2007, we had an opportunity to sit with Magnus and conduct a very candid and honest interview with him. Our questions ranged from the status of Vista/DirectX 10 integration to the current GM scandal situation. His answers are extensive, knowledgable, and provide some intriguing answers to questions that many of us were stewing over.

    Magnus: We're trying to get users to engage in smaller battles, because they are actually alot of fun. We're still discussing some of the ideas that we have - and we always keep in mind that we are a service provider so we don't want to influence them too much. We are not gods. The game is driven by players, and we are just trying to keep up with them.

  • Vampires from Outer Space?

    With the unveiling of our exclusive EVE avatar video, we can now begin to draw lines and begin imagining how the engine could be used in an upcoming CCP game featuring White Wolf's World of Darkness. Watch the video, then read Micajah's opinion on the quality of the video and his excitement regarding the future of the World of Darkness MMO.

    World of Darkness fans, your prayers have been answered. I've now seen what CCP can do when it comes to avatar graphics, and I was astounded by it. It was natural and smooth. But above all, it was beautiful...

    The last year has seen numerous changes to the game world and many momentous events in the EVE Universe, from the First Titan made to the first destroyed. While some of these changes have been both for the better and long anticipated by the community, they have also caused a bit of angst and frustration both in the community and amongst the CCP Family.

  • Now People Can Hear You Scream in Space....
    As part of their GDC presentation, the developers at EVE Online announced that voice communication will be available by late March 2007. Many Eve players rely on quick combat communications, and the integration of voice chat will allow those players to reduce the time it takes to communicate. EVE Voice will be optional and only require a $10 fee for 12 months. Magnus Bergsson, chief marketing officer of the title, explained a bit about the voice capabilities:

    We recently had a fleet battle with more than 1,000 players in one sector of the EVE universe. The amount of communication between those players in planning and executing these maneuvers is vast. Adding integrated voice will not just enhance gameplay by accelerating those plans and allowing players to react quickly as situations unfold in-game, but it will give combat pilots a strategic advantage.

  • An Interview with Noah "Hammerhead" Ward

    WarCry.com has posted this interview that talks about EVE Online.

    WarCry: Since the first Titan was destroyed, will the Dev Team make the wreck a permanent fixture in the universe to commemorate the event?

    Noah Ward: That's always been our plan. There was a huge e-mail thread about it here and everyone was in agreement that it should definitely be done. We've got the coordinates to not only the first wreck but the second as well.
