CCP Games Launching EVE World Tour in March

EVE Online” developer CCP Games is launching the EVE World Tour in 2019, it announced on Thursday. The year-long event includes a series of conventions across numerous cities and venues worldwide.

“We’ve been asking you to come and visit us in Iceland for years now, so it’s time we go and visit you,” said Sveinn Jóhannesson Kjarval, senior community development lead at CCP Games. “As promised at Fanfest 2018 and EVE Vegas 2018, we’re turning our Fanfest efforts up to eleven by packing our backpacks full of exciting updates, keynotes, exclusive content, PvP tournaments, with a sprinkle of Permaband and taking all of this (and more) closer to our community. So close, that with Fanfest Home, we’re actually going to hold a Fanfest at the home of one of our players.”

Here is the full EVE World Tour schedule:

Netherlands: EVEsterdam, Compagnie Theatre — Mar. 23-24

The EVE World Tour kicks off with a keynote presentation and a “unique look” at the “EVE Online” universe. Players will make an impact in various ways, CCP said, and they can expect a party worthy of Amsterdam’s nightlife afterwards.
