CCP Games has announced that tickets are now available for the thirteenth EVE Fanfest, the annual celebration of all things EVE Online, including travel packages with flight, hotel, and car rental deals for loyal fans. Set to take place 6th-8th April 2017, CCP Games will host its fans in celebrating company’s 20th birthday celebration.
CCP Games was formed in 1996 and released EVE Online in the early days of massively multiplayer online (MMO) videogames in 2003. Over the intervening years, EVE Online has been in aggressive and continuous development, and has lead to the release of two virtual reality (VR) spin-offs, EVE Valkyrie and Gunjack, with two more on currently in development.
During the annual gathering of its players in Reykjavik, Iceland, home of the EVE Online development team, fans celebrate the virtual worlds of the EVE universe in a grand style. This year CCP is promising an extra-impressive EVE Fanfest for EVE Online capsuleers, EVE: Valkyrie pilots, Gunjack turret operators and their friends and family at the stunning Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Center. Unique EVE Fanfest events will supplement keynotes, panels, development presentations, PvP tournaments, videogame demos, round tables, a developer-led pub crawl, the infamous Party on Top of the World, and unprecedented access to the company’s development teams.
Celebrating the CONCORD theme for EVE Fanfest 2017, players who purchase tickets before 1st January 2017 will get a unique CONCORD Enforcer cruiser, all EVE Fanfest attendees will get a CONCORD Pacifier Frigate, and those that attend EVE Fanfest and EVE Vegas 2017 will get a CONCORD Marshal Battleship. The ships will also be available to the rest of the EVE Online community via different means later in the year.
More announcements about EVE Fanfest 2017 will be made over the next several months, as well as the schedule for the free livestream.
