is the biggest gathering of EVE Online
fans in the world. There's just one small problem for folks who live in North America: Fanfest is in Iceland, which is very far away. Like, super far. You probably couldn't even drive there.
The distance between the Americas and Iceland is one reason CCP holds another annual fan gathering in Las Vegas, known as EVE Vegas
. And in a dev blog posted early this morning, the company outlined what attendees can expect from this year's romp in the desert.
This year's EVE Vegas, will feature presentations from devs and players of both EVE Online
and DUST 514
, a tournament with prizes, and a pub and club crawl, with the main party taking place on the roof of the Rio hotel. CCP is also sending more devs this time around.
Perhaps most interesting: Capsuleers can pay the $200 EVE Vegas ticket price with PLEX
. EVE Vegas 2013 brings even more spreadsheets to the city of sin from October 18th to October 20th.
