“We’re very excited for the first public outing of EVE Echoes, the next revolutionary step in mobile MMO
gaming,” said Hilmar V. Petursson, CEO of CCP Games. “I can’t wait to see the reaction from our core PC
players, who will no doubt recognize the unparalleled scale and sophisticated gameplay of EVE Online’s
virtual world running through the veins of EVE Echoes.”
 
“CCP Games is a pioneer in space MMOs, and will make its mark on the industry even further by expanding
the EVE experience to mobile with EVE Echoes,” said Ethan Wang, Vice President of NetEase, Inc.
 
“Combining CCP’s leadership in game design with our NeoX game engine and leadership in game publishing
will no doubt create a spacefaring sandbox MMO for mobile devices unlike anything seen before.”
 
EVE Echoes brings the vast, interstellar EVE universe from PC to the palm of your hand. Built using NetEase
Games’ proprietary NeoX graphics engine, EVE Echoes stays true to CCP’s hallmark EVE Online design
principles and immerses pilots in beautiful starry skies and across boundless star fields. Pilots must collect
resources, manufacture items, and explore thousands of uncharted planets to write their own history in
pursuit of galactic glory. A realistic social system enables players to join and lead corporations, form
coalitions, capture rival territories, engage in intergalactic combat, and much more across thousands of
planetary systems.
 
Taking place October 25 - 27 in Las Vegas, EVE Vegas is the largest gathering of fans from around the world
in celebration of all things EVE. During EVE Vegas, attendees will learn more about EVE Echoes as well as the
expanding EVE franchise, play the game hands-on ahead of its open beta this December, hear from the
