Epic users can warp into EVE Online for free and join the growing community enjoying unrivaled freedom to forge their own path in the vast star cluster of New Eden.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Epic to bring EVE Online to the masses on the Epic Game Store,” said Bergur Finnbogason, EVE Online’s Creative Director. “We recently gave EVE’s new player experience a major overhaul and launched a plethora of activities designed to excite players logging in to EVE for the first time. We look forward to meeting you in New Eden!”
EVE Online has welcomed over 24M lifetime pilots to traverse New Eden’s 7,000 star systems since the game launched in 2003. In the last year alone, more than 2M new players have joined the EVE Online’s community and are enjoying the spaceship MMO’s unparalleled freedom.
EVE Online is famous for its thriving in-game economy, political intrigue, and diverse lineup of player-run organizations. Over the game’s 18-year history, players have destroyed more than 91M total ships. EVE Online players even broke four GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS titles in 2020 and 2021 during the largest player war in the game’s history, including the biggest battle in video game history and the most costly video game battle.
Last week, CCP Games introduced a revamped New Player Experience and customizable Skill Plans that make EVE Online more accessible to newcomers. With the updated training program, Epic Games Store users who are trying EVE Online for the first time can learn how to play the MMO in a safe environment that is isolated from other players. To celebrate today’s release, CCP games has launched the “Researching the Rogues” event in EVE Online. “Researching the Rogues” has players research rogue drone activity across multiple combat sites and exploration anomalies. Starting today, new and veteran players can log in and receive free rewards themed after the “Researching the Rogues” event.
