Massively previously announced some of the details
of the upcoming EVE Online
Fanfest 2008, but CCP Games
has just updated their site
dedicated to the annual capsuleer pilgrimage. The three-day event (November 6-8) will be filled with a PvP Tournament; presentations by CCP
devs to showcase upcoming game features; roundtable discussions between players and devs; and a silent auction of EVE
collectibles with proceeds to benefit sick children.
If any of that sounds enticing to you, it actually gets better. EVE
Fanfest 2008 will feature a hands-on demo of Ambulation.
CCP states: "You'll be able to sit down and interact with character avatars live at FanFest. This will be the first public demonstration of EVE with Walking in Stations and we expect this experience to be a huge draw."
To help pack in the crowds, CCP Games is offering travel packages for reduced rates on airfare and hotel stays, and they've expanded the travel package offerings to more countries
since their initial Fanfest announcement. Check out CCP's Fanfest '08 site
for the full details on what's the most anticipated annual event for EVE Online
fanatics (and a few Massively writers as well).
