Eve Online Celebrates Its’ 13th Birthday

Can you believe that CCP’s baby, EVE Online, has turned 13? Usually, the teenage years are a time for rebellion, Defiance and not a Tabula Rasa for long time fans. But since all of those games no longer exist – it’s actually an amazing milestone for a massively multiplayer online title to be live for such  a long time.  EVE: Online joins the leagues of games like Ashron’s Call, Everquest 1 and Lineage II as being one of the few games from the golden age of MMOs in the mid-00s to still welcome new players.

Developers CCP is celebrating this major anniversary with an in-game event known as “Capsuleer Day” this weekend, sponsored by the in-universe technology conglomerate Upwell Consortium. All active pilots will be given a new Upwell themed skin for their capsules and a set of “festival launchers” allowing pilots to launch celebratory fireworks into the vacuum of space

Joining in on the festivities this weekend it’s third hard at all – you can snag a 21 day trial through the following referral link, download a 14 day trial from the Steam Store or if you’re ready to commit you can purchase the Eve Core Bundle on Steam at 75% off ($5.75 CDN).

The core starter pack includes:

  • A Venture mining frigate
  • A full set of modules & equipment
  • Over two dozen primary skills unlocked and ready to train
  • A deployable mobile depot
  • Prototype skill booster
  • 30 days of game time

CCP haven’t been letting EVE Online sit idle – their latest major expansion Citadel launched just last week and is part of a larger plan to update player owned structures over the foreseeable future. The next structures – Drilling Platforms and Mining Arrays are expected to be rolled out in the summer and winter respectively.
