  • The EVE Online 64-Bit Open Beta Is Now Live!

    28. May 2019 16:00


    As part of the celebrations around the launch of EVE Online: Invasion, we’re delighted to announce that the opt-in open beta for the 64-bit EVE Online client is now live!

    The transition to a 64-bit client is a huge technical milestone in the sixteen-year development history of EVE Online, and we’re super excited to be able to offer this open beta as we finalize testing and development of the new client.

    It’s been incredible to see how the much community has embraced testing for the new client so far, and we’d like to give a huge thank you to everyone who’s assisted with live testing on Singularity as well as bug reporting and discussion of the new client and its performance.

    How Do I Get Involved?

    If you’d like to take part in the 64-bit open beta, it’s pretty simple. You’ll just need to switch over your launcher to download the 64-bit version of the EVE Online client.

    To do this, please follow these instructions:

    First, click the "E" icon in the top right of you launcher, as shown below:

    64-1

    Next, select “settings” from the dropdown menu, as highlighted in the following image:

    64-2

    You’ll then see a popup window with a series of checkboxes. Simply check the option to "run clients with 64-bit", as indicated below, and click okay.

    64-3

    Congratulations, the launcher will now download the 64-bit client for you to take part in the open beta. Please be aware that if you do experience any issues, you can always switch back to the 32-bit client.

    How Do I Provide Feedback?

    Part of the reason that we’ve been able to deliver a 64-bit open beta ahead of schedule is due to the incredible support we’ve received from the community during testing on Singularity.

    All the bug reporting, discussion and flagging of issues has paid off, so be sure to provide bug reports and information on any issues you encounter.

    Here’s a couple of resources that’ll assist you with the EVE Online 64-bit open beta:

  • EVE Online: Invasion Is Live!

    28. May 2019 13:00


    We’re super happy to announce that the summer expansion, EVE Online: Invasion, is now live!

    The summer expansion brings the kickoff of the Triglavian invasion as the Collective takes its first aggressive steps into known space. In addition to this, there’s a whole host of quality of life changes, the next stage of the war declaration overhaul, new tech II Triglavian hulls, mutaplasmid groups and invention materials, as well as the new pointer tool and a complete overhaul of The Agency.

    Pilots can expect the Triglavian threat to escalate in the coming weeks as the collective begins to establish a beachhead in known space, launching attacks against territories across the cluster.

    Bringing a new presence to New Eden, pilots will have to directly face the Triglavian fleet as it emerges from abyssal deadspace in brand new combat sites.

    64-TODAY

    EVE Client 64-bit Open Beta!

    In addition to EVE Online: Invasion, today marks the start of the opt-in open beta for the 64-bit EVE Online client. If you’d like to take part in the open beta, please take a look at this news item for more information on how to switch your launcher over to the 64-bit client.

    Quick Info:

    Feedback Threads:

    Additional Expansion Information:

    EVE Online: Invasion sees the Triglavian Collective emerge from the Abyss for the first time, in an invasion that will begin on May 28th and intensify in the following days and weeks. Capsuleers across the cluster should be prepared to meet this new threat head on, facing formidable enemy fleets and escalating consequences to earn lucrative rewards.

    In addition to this, there’ll be the introduction of the first Tech II Triglavian ships, as well as new mutaplasmids for damage controls, assault damage controls and both ancillary armor repairers and shield boosters.

    Industry changes are also coming with the Invasion to accommodate the new Tech II Triglavian hulls, including brand new skills for Triglavian invention and manufacturing as well as new Tech II Triglavian components, datacores and some tweaks to Triglavian ship and module production.

    The EVE Dev Team’s focus on quality of life improvements will also see the next stage of war declaration changes arrive with EVE Online: Invasion, as well as tweaks to Tech II ammo types, allowing them to be loaded into all Faction, Storyline, and Officer weapon variations.

    Quality of life improvements don’t stop there, with this expansion also offering an entirely redesigned experience for The Agency, with a focus on making content and activities in New Eden more discoverable and accessible to both new and established pilots alike. The Agency will see the return of the agent finder, as well as a visual overhaul to make activities, resource gathering and exploration clearer and more concise.

  • 2019/05/28 – EVE Online: Invasion Deployment Information

    24. May 2019 15:00


    We’re delighted to announce that deployment of the summer expansion, EVE Online: Invasion, is scheduled for next Tuesday, May 28th during an extended daily downtime.

    Downtime will begin at the usual time of 11:00 UTC and will run for a total of 30 minutes, during which EVE Online: Invasion will be deployed. We expect Tranquility to be back online and accepting connections by 11:30 UTC.

    And of course, earlier than planned due to the incredible level of support that we’ve seen in testing from the EVE Community, the deployment of EVE Online: Invasion will also include an opt-in open beta for the 64-bit EVE Online client. There’ll be more information on how to opt into this on release day.

  • Join the EVE 64-Bit Open Beta with EVE Online: Invasion!

    24. May 2019 05:00


    The Australian leg of the EVE Invasion World Tour is currently in full swing at EVE Down Under, and as part of the EVE Keynote over in Sydney, we’re delighted to announce that pilots across the cluster will be able to join an opt-in open beta for the 64-bit EVE client with the release of the summer expansion for EVE Online.

    With the launch of EVE Online: Invasion on Tuesday May 28, pilots will be able to switch their launcher over to download the 64-bit client for EVE Online if they wish to do so, as we finalize its rollout toward the summer.

    Eventually the 64-bit client will become the standard for EVE, replacing older 32-bit architecture. For now, the two will run side by side as we beta test 64-bit clients on Tranquility.

    We’re super excited to deliver a 64-bit open beta for EVE well ahead of schedule, and a huge part of our ability to do that has been the incredible support we’ve received from the EVE Online community with testing and bug reporting on Singularity.

    The Community has been incredible in their support for the transition to 64-bit client architecture and have been a driving force behind making sure we could deliver the client so rapidly. The release of the 64-bit client represents a key modernization moment in the sixteen year development history of EVE Online and is a substantial milestone in our continued investment in EVE, so it’s incredible to see how much the community has embraced it so far!

    There’ll be further information with the deployment of EVE Online: Invasion next Tuesday, including instructions on how pilots can switch over their clients to the new 64-bit version if they’d like to opt into the open beta!

    Huge thanks to everyone who chose to take part in the 64-bit mass tests and provide incredibly valuable feedback.

  • EVE Invasion World Tour – G-Fleet Tickets On Sale!

    15. May 2019 14:00


    We’re delighted to announce that the tickets to the next European leg of the EVE Invasion World Tour are now on sale!

    With an incredible history that dates back to 2015, G-Fleet will be held on September 13-14 at the Game Science Center in Berlin, forming the German leg of the World Tour.

    We’re super excited to be working with the awesome team at G-Fleet for this year’s event, which will be celebrating its fifth anniversary as part of the World Tour roster.

    A unique two-day gathering with plenty of space to meet fellow pilots, socialize and have fun with your favourite friends (and enemies!), G-Fleet is an event on the calendar that’s one you absolutely can’t miss.

    There’ll be presentations held by both players and developers, food and beverages and of course the Berlin leg of the EVE Invasion Tournament Series, which will see the selection of a winning team who’ll fly out to Fanfest 2020 and battle it out for the title of World Champions live on stage!

    G-Fleet is hosted at the Game Science Center, just a stone’s throw away from the iconic Checkpoint Charlie in central Berlin. The venue celebrates all things connected to electronic gaming, with plenty of fun, interactive exhibits for visitors to try out. G-Fleet will have the full museum space, as well as the adjacent event rooms of Forum Factory.

    There will be plenty of room for tons of EVE related content, with space for presentations, games, socializing and raising a glass to your fellow pilots and their shenanigans over the years.

    Here at CCP, we’re already deep into the planning stages for G-Fleet, working with the organizers to put a kick ass event together for this year’s attendees.

    We can’t wait to see our pilots when we arrive in Germany and we hope that as many of you as possible will come along to join in the celebration of all things internet spaceships.

    You can grab your tickets to G-Fleet 2019 by heading on over to the Eventbrite page for the event, and you can find out more information (auf Deutsch and English! :D) over at G-Fleet.de.

  • Great News For Mac Users – Deprecation Of The CCP-Master Fork Coming Tomorrow, May 14

    14. May 2019 00:00


    We’re happy to announce that tomorrow we’ll be deprecating the ccp-master fork and will begin using direct upstream Wine versions for the Mac client for EVE Online.

    The upstream Wine fork enables us to move forward with the 64-bit client upgrade on all our supported platforms, so that Mac users will not be left behind in the wake of the upcoming transition to a 64-bit EVE client.

    On rollout, Mac users will no longer need to run a wrapper to execute a 32-bit client on their native 64-bit operating systems, which will allow the EVE client to make better use of system resources and resolve a number of long standing issues that pilots who are playing on Mac experience.

    Using upstream Wine will also improve the speed at which updates will reach our pilots who’re playing on Mac, with a multitude of Mac compatibility improvements becoming available to all Mac users with this single release.

    Removing ccp-master keeps the experience of Mac users parallel with other software users in the Mac Wine environment. To this end, control schemes (and specifically some bespoke ccp-master key bindings) will change as described here. The only out-of-client change required will be needing to enable Secondary Click in MacOS mouse settings.

    We’re super excited to be able to make this change tomorrow, so that we can make sure all our pilots who play on Mac will be able to reap the benefits of the transition to a 64-bit client at the same time as our pilots who’re playing on PC!

    We’ll have more information on the transition to 64-bit in the coming months as we prepare for the switch over!

  • 2019/05/07 - 64-bit Client Mass Test

    7. May 2019 15:55


    We're super happy to announce that we're planning a mass test on Tuesday, May 7th in order to perform further testing on the new 64-bit client for EVE Online.

    This test will take place on the Singularity test cluster, and we'll be looking to test various areas of performance for the new client.

    In order to test the 64-bit client in situations with large player populations, we'd like to get as many players as possible together for this test, so please come along if you can spare the time - your contribution will have a huge impact on the develpment of the 64-bit client for EVE!

    If you're interested in joining us for this mass test, please come along to Singularity at 17:00 UTC on Tuesday, May 7th.

    We're giving a week of notice as we'd like as many pilots as possible to attend!

    Participants will receive a reward of two million skillpoints (available only on the test server Singularity).

    Please note that numbers, art assets, and other game properties on the test servers are not final and may change before they are released.
