EVE Online: Fanfest Keynote Highlights

EVE Online's keynote address was this afternoon, with news focused on EVE's update structure, an art book, new download options and account security.

The shift to many smaller updates worked well for CCP, so the team will continue their focus on updating roughly every five weeks. The larger updates will still be named, and focus will be on features. A new site,, is now up to keep track of update news and progress.

At 11am ET tomorrow, the Limited Edition of a new EVE concept art book will go on sale for $89.

EVE Fanfest: Valkyrie Gameplay Video & More

The ZAM Gamescom 2013 Awards

It's been a hellish three days. We've poked and prodded the latest games from the biggest developers. We've interviewed those behind the games, probing for in-depth answers on how they'll entertain us in the coming months and years. Finally, after careful consideration, we have our verdicts. Join us, as we tell you about the best games heading your way in 2014.

Let The Heavens Rain Down

The official DUST 514 launch is almost here (we think), and CCP has just taken a major step in bringing New Eden to a whole new audience. As of today, all DUST 514 beta players have been migrated to Tranquility, the single sever that powers the live EVE Online universe.

"For the first time in history, two games unfold in a single universe, and now DUST 514 and EVE Online also occupy a single server: Tranquility. Find out what this historic connection means for your DUST 514 career in our latest developer blog: "Welcome to New Eden."

It's In The DNA

It's funny... We were *just* talking about this the other day in the ZAM Newsroom, then BLAM! All of a sudden, today CCP throws us a bone - and a meaty one at that.

EVE Online Update: Patch [1.27.09]

Today marks the beginning of the end of EVE Online normality. Of course we are referring to the release of a new patch. With it, they are preparing us for what is to come: New ship technologies, new systems to explore, new NPCs and all new stories are due, with the upcoming release of their latest expansion, Apocrypha. Downtime is scheduled for 6:00 AM EST until 7:15 AM. This release also contains their new Redeeming System, slated to make paying for your online game-of-choice a secure breeze.

Redeeming System Added to EVE Online

Quantum Rise 1.0.5 was deployed today and it brings with it the new redeeming system.

The redeeming system allows players to take advantage of special offers made available by CCP and affiliated companies. In this release, the redeeming system will allow for game time credit to be purchased via the Secure EVE Online website in the form of 30 Day Pilot License Extensions (PLEX). More information about the use of PLEX can be found here.

You can read the full patch notes, which also contain some minor fixes, here or below.

EVE Online Gets New Exploration System

Not wanting to vary from their completely immersing story and feature additions, EVE Online wrote today in their development blog about how they are going to add a whole new aspect to the game, with wormholes.

Wormholes will bring us to this new frontier, appearing all over New Eden as a result of a cataclysmic event, the nature of which we'll reveal in the coming months. These wormholes are unstable and will spawn and vanish randomly throughout the known universe. A pilot who stumbles across one of these stellar phenomena can fly through it and travel to unknown space, where there are no stargates or stations, just the unexplored void of a new solar system.

This is an exciting development that will tie into their story seamlessly. One has to wonder where they get so many innovative ideas but they continue to surprise everyone with the way they keep the game interesting.
