Gamers everywhere are excited, anticipating the latest of Eve, one of the most iconic games ever made, which developers have announced is going to be free to all. The game which currently requires a £9.99 subscription fee after a 14-day trial has taken this new free turn in order to attract more players.
The game involves the player coming along in a ship and being part of a virtual universe economically, therefore building things, or fighting other players. Rowan Hawke, a veteran of the game said there could be from about 15,000 to 30,000 people online at any given time but believes this new development will have a massive effect, "It's going to give people a lot longer to really immerse themselves in the universe and find more people like-minded like them.
In an online post, the game's developers said: "With the interconnected nature of the game comes vulnerability.
"We knew that if the floodgates were opened in the wrong way, we could see anything from server meltdowns to the collapse of the Eve economy." It however will still require payment to upgrade player’s ships and use certain skills, the update arrives this November
