It's been quite a while since I've visited EVE Online
. I was there at the beginning, and checked it out again for the Eve Online: Exodus
update, but then I moved on to other games that I had to review and never, sadly, found the time to get back to EVE
. Last year, in fact, CCP wasn't even at E3
, so I didn't even get any updates there.
This year, CCP is showing at E3 again, showing off some updates to EVE Online, as well as an upcoming console game, Dust 514, which will not only take place in the same universe as EVE Online, but will actually have interaction with EVE Online, such that the console-based third person shooter will play out the battles ordered by player-created and player-controlled corporations in EVE Online, and the results of these battles in Dust 514 will determine the outcome of those operations in EVE. This sounds quite exciting and will be a previously unheard of level of interaction between a PC game and console game... especially given that it's two different games that aren't even the same genre.
