Fans of EVE, it’s coming! An open beta for EVE Echoes is now available to Android users in select regions, US included, so now is your chance to get in on the spaceship sandbox MMO for mobile devices.
Whether you were a part of the game’s alpha or not, you’ll be happy to learn that the beta brings quite a few new things to play with.
- Expanded game content: Ships, Modules & Drones – EVE Echoes is dedicated to bringing the enormous universe of EVE Online to mobile devices and the Open Beta introduces more advanced ships and new modules to the game. Furthermore, the most hotly anticipated weapon system, Drones, has come to EVE Echoes in a new form.
- New Gameplay Types Now Available – In order to meet the increasing demand for in-game business dealings, a new trading platform, the Interstellar Trading Center (ITC) has opened. Additionally, a new mission type, Storyline Missions, was added to Encounters. All players joining the EVE Echoes Open Beta will have access to these unique features.
- New Player Tutorial for Rookie Pilots – The Open Beta sees the introduction of the new player tutorial. With this detailed tutorial guide, all novice pilots can learn how to survive and thrive in New Eden.
Personally, EVE isn’t really a game I can get myself into because it feels like too much a commitment. There’s no telling if the mobile version will have the same sort of real life monetary stakes as the PC version has, but still, it’s way over my head.
