Just when you internet-spaceship-only types thought it was safe to resume your relationship with CCP
, the EVE Online
studio has dropped a dev blog
detailing its plans for further Incarna
-style avatar development.
The recent CCP reorganization put bidpedal gameplay on the back burner due to a player outcry in favor of the game's flying-in-space elements, but as it turns out, CCP "still believes in the vision to bring your characters fully into the world of EVE
." CCP t0rfifrans
says it will simply take a bit longer for the firm to realize its ambitious sandbox goals. He also says those goals are currently up for debate, and while gambling minigames, corporation-owned hubs, and contraband trading haven't been ruled out entirely, Team Avatar has gone "back to the drawing board" in the interests of identifying rewarding gameplay and developing a prototype.
In other New Eden news, CCP's Power of 2
promotion is making a return engagement, and you can create a second account at a discount price through April 1st.
