Today we announced that EVE TV will be bringing live streaming of EVE Fanfest 2012 and the Party at the Top of the World to you, live and for free, over the internet all the way from Reykjavik, Iceland.
Fanfest 2012 is easily the biggest Fanfest ever, guaranteed to match EVE Online's 8th straight year of subscriber growth, the looming addition of the AAA PlayStation3 FREE TO PLAY first person shooter DUST 514 to the EVE universe and a few more surprising things in store for hundreds of attendees and thousands of internet viewers.
In addition to releasing massive amounts of information on EVE's summer expansion, EVE Online: Inferno, we'll be having the first hands-on demo of DUST 514, tournaments, panels, presentations, tech demos, interviews and more.
What can viewers expect of the stream?
- Full live feed from Fanfest 2012, covering all 3 days' worth of events
- An estimated 32+ hours of content broadcast live from the new venue
- Major presentations streamed as they happen with regularly updated highlights of concurrent events
- CCP devs guiding you through the whole thing
- Party at the Top of the world featuring live acts.
And it's also available in HD for those wishing to purchase it, including virtual swag.
More information about the free and HD streaming options of Fanfest can be found here.
YouTube videos from last year's awesome-but-lesser-than-2012-Fanfest can be found in this playlist, including Chessboxing.
I can honestly say it will be the most unique three days in gaming ever, especially as we pull back the curtain on DUST 514 and lay out some amazing future plans for EVE Online. ~CCP Manifest
