CCP Games today launched EVE Anywhere, a cloud-based platform based on Intel technology for the hit spaceship MMO EVE Online. Working closely with Intel, EVE Anywhere allows pilots to command their fleets through Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Safari on any desktop or laptop computer. Previously limited to premium Omega account users while in beta, EVE Anywhere is now available for EVE Online players in the USA and select* European territories. The platform will be available for additional territories later this year.
EVE Anywhere is powered by Intel technology, allowing CCP to remotely access high-capacity servers with state-of-the-art CPUs via the cloud. By operating in the cloud, EVE Anywhere removes the barrier of hardware limitations and opens up the MMO’s iconic adventures to new audiences. This revolutionizes both the accessibility and pace of the game, as anyone can play ‘virtually’ anywhere they want and seamlessly switch between a web browser or the EVE Online client’s launcher.
The platform entered into beta last year for territories across Europe and saw an overwhelmingly positive reception. Since August 2021, more than 11,000 users across the globe have streamed 86,000 sessions in EVE Anywhere. Throughout the beta, CCP took valuable community feedback to improve the overall cloud experience for EVE Anywhere’s full-scale launch.
“EVE Anywhere was incredibly well received by those testing it in beta over the past year. We truly appreciate you Capsuleers who tried it out and shared invaluable feedback to help us improve the experience,” said Bergur Finnbogason, EVE Online’s Creative Director. “Thanks to all of your help, we’re finally ready to get EVE Anywhere into your hands, no matter your browser preferences.”
To access EVE Anywhere, go to eveonline.com, sign in to your account, and click the ‘Launch EVE Online’ button to start playing. A connection speed of 25Mbps or higher is required for a reliable cloud-based experience.
