We got an official release date for EVE Online
's next expansion, Trinity, at the FanFest
over the weekend. If you're an EVE
player, make sure to leave the first week of December open, because that's when you'll be playing with all the cool new ships
and updates in Trinity
. Of course, the fun starts tomorrow, when Revelations.2.3 arrives
, but in just a month from now, we'll have access to Trinity
(the new name of what used to be Revelations 3
GamesIndustry also has an interview up with CCP CEO Hilmar Petursson
, who tells them that the old graphic engine isn't actually going anywhere-- players will be able to switch from old to new via the configuration screen ingame. There's also a new ingame concurrency record-- it's a whopping 37,200 players all in one game (I think all of them were in Jita yesterday afternoon, because it was horrible there). Petursson also gives feedback on CCP's decision to hire a real-life economist to help them with the player-driven economy-- apparently "he's validated some of our assumptions, but he's also shattered a lot too." Man, I'd love to sit in on a few of those meetings.
Mark your calendars: Trinity
is coming the first week of December. And unless you change that setting, EVE
will never look the same.
