Sci-fi MMO EVE Online
initially launched as a physical disc sold in stores back in 2003 and saw limited success in the fledgling MMO space. A decade of regular updates and digital distribution has seen EVE
grow organically into the largest sci-fi sandbox on the planet with over half a million subscribers, but until now something has been missing: EVE
has never had an actual collector's edition box. To celebrate 10 successful years of operation, last month CCP
officially released the EVE
Second Decade Collector's Edition box.
I recently received a review copy of the Collector's Edition from CCP and have put together an unboxing video with my general impressions of the items within. The collection comes in a sturdy presentation box and contains a 192-page commemorative hardback book looking back on the first decade of EVE
's history, along with an anniversary re-release edition of CCP's board game Danger Game and a physical Rifter model that doubles as a USB hub.
The pack also comes with a new account key with 60 days of game time, a soundtrack CD of the EVE
music played by the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra, and keys to unlock billions of ISK worth of virtual collectables in-game. It's pretty expensive at around €150 or $150 US
, but the virtual items can be sold in game to claw back some of the cost in the form of PLEX. Enjoy our look at the new CE!
