Are you bummed that your budget won't allow for a trip to Reykjavik for the EVE Online
Fanfest this year? Perhaps you're still new to New Eden and aren't sure what kind of stuff goes on at the party on top of the world? Well, in either case, CCP
and Level 3
have you covered. According to a press release
from earlier this morning, Level 3 -- already known for offering live-streaming of the EVE Online Alliance tournaments
-- will be offering its services to allow fans at home to check out some of the myriad Fanfest events. The press release was followed by a blog post on the official EVE Online site
that offers up even more details on the event streams.
For those who have one spare PLEX lying around (or the equivalent cash), a high-definition stream of the events will be available for purchase. As if the HD-streaming deal weren't sweet enough, all players who opt to purchase the higher-end stream will be granted a special Quafe t-shirt similar to the ones that attendees of Fanfest will receive, only this particular version will be for their characters' in-game use when Incarna
rolls out. However, if spending money on the Fanfest stream isn't for you, you can still check out the weekend's panels and events via the lower-definition EVE
TV stream that will be available on the main Fanfest site
starting on March 25th and running until the evening of March 26th. Check out the EVE Online streaming blog post
for all the details!
