'Earth & Beyond' Users Offered An Upgrade To 'Eve Online'

CCP, in cooperation with IGN/GameSpy, is offering Earth and Beyond users an upgrade to EVE Online. This is a response to the high number of inquires and downloads CCP has received during the last 48 hours from Earth and Beyond users. These users have been forced to look elsewhere for an alternative Science Fiction Online Game after Electronic Arts announced it would close down Earth and Beyond at the end of summer.

"We were surprised by the strong reaction this announcement has made, and the number of downloads we have received", says Magnus Bergsson, Marketing Manager at CCP. "To meet this demand we have created a special upgrade program to make it easier for these users to explore EVE Online."
The upgrade program will include a no-obligation free trial of EVE Online and a walkthrough of the game by a member of the EVE volunteer group. The EVE volunteer will explain to the user the differences between the two games and ease the transition into EVE from Earth and Beyond. For more information please visit the official Eve Online website.


EVE Online is a massively multiplayer online game with close to 10,000 users playing in the same virtual space at any given time. The EVE world is the home to more than 5000 solar systems and 70,000 planets in which over 100,000 active characters pit their wits against each other in the constant search for fame and fortune.
