CCP gets far too little credit as a consistently lovable developer. Since mid-way through 2003 they have been releasing frequent updates for their flagship title Eve Online. The expansions have kept the game gorgeous, exciting, feature-filled, and besides the subscriber fee, all updates have been free-of-charge. “Inferno” launches tomorrow as the 17th major update, and boy, it’s a big one.

One of the most prominent changes is a graphical update, encompassing a major visual overhaul to Amarr faction’s fleet and a completely revised missile and launcher system that vastly improves missile flight paths and explosive effects. Players will also be introduced to kill reports, a new war declaration system, and many other features to aid new players on their journey into zero space. A full update overview can be found here.

The update releases on May 22, and once again comes at no costs to subscribed players. If you’re a space pilot with patience and a will to learn, head over to the official Eve Online site to sign up for a free 14-day trial.

As for that headline, well… it seems that right before this video was made, the President of Iceland got his own preview of the upcoming expansion. I wonder how he felt about the recent griefer siege of the Jita system.


  1. This article told me nothing about the Icelandic president, nor what he supports. No text in the article even mentions him.

    Throwing an embedded video in the end doesn’t really justify that title / tagline. At least reference him in the article AT ALL, and preferably give me some more information.

  2. Well, why was he there, the president?

    Ripten needs more drama and investigative journalism. Else, you are just one of many gazillion bazillion gaming sites …
