CCP ANNOUNCES ONLINE STREAMING PLANS FOR EVE FANFEST

REYKJAVIK, ICELAND—Mar 28, 2013— CCP Games, the world’s leading independent massively multiplayer game developer, has announced live streaming options for its sold-out, annual fan celebration EVE Fanfest (April 25-27). Each year, thousands of EVE Online® and DUST 514® players from around the world travel to CCP’s headquarters in Reykjavik, Iceland for several days of celebration of the EVE Universe.

CCP will be live streaming EVE Fanfest in standard definition for free on their Twitch.TV channel ( www.twitch.tv/ccp) and in HD for a one-time fee of $19.95 USD or one PLEX (which can be obtained on the EVE Online in-game market). Viewers will get the latest announcements from CCP, panels, presentations, PvP tournament coverage from both EVE and DUST and the famous Party at the Top of the World amongst other unannounced events. All programming is highly produced and includes commentary and interviews from developers and players in the true EVE community spirit.

The EVE Fanfest high definition stream includes:

·         Three full days of high definition programming live from Fanfest

·         Access to the HD stream of a series of live pre-Fanfest interviews with CCP developers. Schedule: http://www.twitch.tv/ccp

·         A digital copy of the Fanfest “Quafe” Tshirt for EVE Online , which matches the shirt attendees receive

·         A choice of one of five pirate faction rookie ships for EVE Online : the Angel Cartel Echo, Blood Raider Hematos, Dread Guristas Taipan, Sansha’s Nation Immolator or Serpentis Violator

·         Fifty copies of the Quafe Scout vk.0 dropsuit for DUST 514 —a flashy and effective dropsuit for confident mercenaries

While the HD stream can be purchased through CCP or Twitch.TV, only viewers purchasing the stream through CCP’s EVE Online account management system at https://secure.eveonline.com/fanfest/stream.aspx will receive the in-game promo items.

This year CCP will be celebrating the 10 th anniversary of EVE Online with a “Second Decade” theme, focusing on the wealth of stories and successes of the first ten years of EVE and its year-on-year subscriber growth. CCP will also look forward to the next ten years of EVE and DUST with reveals, announcements, demonstrations and parties.
