EVE Online for Tegra-2 Tablets and Phones in the Works
CCP Games' MMORPG EVE Online is knocking on Tegra 2-equipped tablets and smartphones doors.
How true is it that MMORPG EVE Online is set to make an apperance in tablets and phones? Well based on what CCP Games showed off in its EVE Fanfest last weekend, it’s pretty much true. The developer and publisher displayed an “exploratory project” which runs an abridged version of the game on NVIDIA’s Tegra 2-equppied tablets and smartphones.
Although the project is not a complete version of the title, the demo certainly convinced the audience as it shows a spacecraft rendered from EVE Online with a familiar user interface. CCP Games shared that the mobile version of the MMORPG is going to take place in the same universe as its PC counterpart.
“We’ve been working a lot on the backend to enable EVE over http, but the problem we run into is that a lot of people seem to equate that with a web browser,” said Halldor Fannar, CCP’s chief technology officer Halldor Fannar at a press event during EVE Fanfest. “It doesn’t necessarily mean that – it means any of these devices can start extracting data and also writing data back. So it opens up the possibility of having dedicated applications for doing market transactions, managing your skill queue and, for instance, fitting your spaceship.”
There are no announcements so far as to when the mobile EVE Online is set for a release and neither was there any signs that the game is capable of running on devices not run by NVIDIA’s Tegra processor, such as Apple iOS devices.
