NetEase and CCP simply unveiled the release date for eve echoes isk, the mobile spin-off based on the massive online hit EVE Online.As part of a distinctive presentation earlier today, Wei Su, Senior Producer in NetEase, confirmed that EVE Echoes is coming into iOS and Android in August 2020.
Over the span of one hour, three of EVE Echoes development group answered questions and provided fans in Twitch chat with a plethora of information about the approaching sci-fi MMORPG. While anybody taking a quick glance at the trailer may think that EVE Echoes looks suspiciously like EVE, there are surely some differences. Fans of the original space-faring EVE Online will probably know that EVE Echoes happens to the stars in a brand new world that looks much like EVE's main timeline. Rather than the overwhelming vastness of space that CCP's servers produce, EVE Echoes will have a marginally smaller galaxy of 8000+ planets along with enormous battles of over 100 ships. Ok, probably not that small an affair after all.
Alongside the massive space adventure, this portable launching provides a fantastic opportunity for new players to get into EVE with a variety of systems developed to create like a tiny bit easier on this new platform. Tutorial systems for EVE Echoes have been designed to direct players that are new to the space-faring sim toward their preferred playstyle and the current beta testing has resulted in an autopilot system that should prevent commuters spending their traveling time traversing space. Of course, iOS and Android players will also find they don't have to drag a keyboard and mouse around with them, as you can see in the iteration of the cell UI over the past couple of years.
Teased at several of the stream's gameplay bits, the Yan-Jung were revealed for the first-time today. Because of play a huge part in the wider lore of EVE Echoes, the Yan-Jung are an ancient race, one that is not entirely new into the world of EVE. This interstellar mystery left New Eden long ago, leaving little trace. We've yet to learn what the return of the force means.
Probably most importantly for gamers present during the live Twitch flow was the 3 dreaded words, Pay To Acquire. Monetization for EVE Echoes will incorporate a monthly pass as well as allowing players to buy things like their very own Mega Clone. We do not have full details about this but it seems, from some onscreen info, which PLEX and ISK are likely to be in place in a very similar shape to the big screen version of EVE. Unlike several internet multiplayer games, this does not seem like EVE Echoes players will probably only have the ability to purchase the biggest boat and fly off into success.
The release window for EVE Echoes flew in among a complete arsenal of additional info, covering companies, personal outposts, and EVEn new boat designs. Trust me if you have obtained your Multi-Pass handy you are going to love some of the new ship skins.
