For months we have observed as fans asked for a Beta date on DUST 514, our PlayStation® 3 exclusive persistent shooter.

It is with great joy that I can now officially announce that registration for DUST 514: Mordu’s Private Trials, our gated access beta test, has finally begun! For now, registration is av...

The passing of the torch: The future of EVE

By CCP Unifex
| Comments

CCP Zulu: The past 18 months have been quite the ride. Since taking on the position of Senior Producer in the summer of 2010, EVE has gone through a lot of change. From the Incursion expansion adding rich, cooperative PVE and recreating and reinventing the avatars in EVE with the critically acclaimed new character creator; to Incarna and the extraordinary circumstances that lead to player protests.

"Last Christmas, I gave you my heart, but the very next day, you po-hodd-ed me..." Back in December 2010 I wrote a dev blog about why we were putting the chronicles on hold and what was going to be one of my new projects from then on.

Price Indices - November 2011

By CCP Recurve
| Comments

The four price indices of New Eden have been calculated for November 2011. My apologies for failing to deliver the index blog for October. For more detail on the indices, please refer to the Market Indices page on Evelopedia. Prices of PI made products rise considerably in November and started doing so mid October, with another spike at the end of November. The first spike coincides with a blog announcing player-owned customs offices and changes to import and export tax, while the other spike h...

Tama Dev Event - The Tech Side

By CCP Veritas
| Comments

Greetings Tranquility Residents, A few weeks ago we ran a Live Event in Tama where us devs got out of our Polaris frigates and picked up arms against all comers. It was terrific fun for us, and from the feedback received, it looks to have been a hit with you folks as well. Today I want to talk about some of the more technical aspects of that event and what it shows about our progress against the “Lag” problem, as well as pointing at the road to the future. So first up, let’s look at how well th...

A Very Merry Fleet Fight

By CCP Goliath
| Comments

At 15.38, on the 9th of December, reports sprung up that a hostile fleet from the long-dormant CCP Alliance had mobilized and were escorting a cargo of loot to their Christmas party. Capsuleers all across New Eden rushed to their intel channels to learn more. Questions flooded in: „Where would they appear? What would they carry? What would they be flying? Did they know how to fit yet?“ but answers were few. As time went on, the populace grew impatient, then angry, proclaiming the reports to be ...

Important Information Regarding the Neural Remap Gift

By CCP Guard
| Comments

Last year we gave away Neural Remaps as many of you remember. They worked out differently for different people and this time around we happily tossed them on the list of gift selections (perhaps without enough foresight some would say). We got a lot of questions and quality feedback from the community in the last two days and quickly realized that expectations about the bonus Neural Remaps varied from reality amongst many members of our community, and that the remaps were likely to leave many d...

You people really do love blowing up spaceships.

By CCP Diagoras
| Comments

One thing I keep a close eye on as part of my role at CCP is the level of PVP activity within EVE. Seeing how many of you blow each other up and how often you do so is an important metric for seeing how much fun everyone is having. So, conveniently timed for MMOCrunch declaring EVE to be the Best PVP MMO of 2011, I present to you: many, many numbers regarding explosions in New Eden. The information in this blog is limited to kills that have taken place since the new kill report system was intro...

Dude, where's my Erebus?

By CCP Frellicus

Have you ever had the need to find a specific item you know you was stuffed away in a station somewhere? Like for instance...your favorite Erebus? This is where the Asset Search comes in handy. Just insert the name of the item type you are looking for, ie. 'erebus ' and press the search button. That isn't helpful enough though.
