Eve Fanfest has concluded in Reykjavik, Iceland, and the annual conference introduced us a number of completely different bulletins. Notably, developer CCP Games remains to be attempting to make an Eve shooter occur.
Spinoff shooter Dust 514 ran from 2013 to 2016 till it was shut down because of low participant rely. Just a few years later, CCP introduced Project Nova, however that deliberate FPS was placed on an indefinite hiatus. Here we’re in 2022, and the oft-promised Eve FPS has been introduced but once more. As a part of the brand new at Fanfest, the studio launched a chunk of idea artwork, seen on the high of this text. It reveals a trio of troopers approaching some automobiles which can be lifting off, however that actually doesn’t tells us something concerning the game.
“We recognize that a hard sci-fi FPS game set in the Eve universe is a very popular concept,” the workforce introduced on the show (through PCGamesN). “CCP is committed to offering an innovative multiplayer shooter with atmospheric visuals. We want to show you rather than tell you how we have evolved the concept, and we’re looking forward to doing so when the time comes to reveal the game.” Based on that wording, we shouldn’t count on to see the game in motion for some time.
On paper, an Eve shooter spinoff actually is smart. Mobile game Eve Echoes launched in summer time 2020, and VR game Eve Valkyrie launched a number of years earlier than that, though the studio that made it was acquired by Sumo Digital. Fans have been even enthusiastic about Microsoft Excel spreadsheet integration, one other function introduced at Fanfest.
