Today Kongregate announced a partnership with CCP Games and PlayRaven to publish EVE: War of Ascension on iOS and Android. Originally revealed at EVE Vegas 2017 as “Project Aurora,” EVE: War of Ascension is a massively multiplayer mobile game set in the EVE universe. Players must work together, forming alliances and partnerships to dominate the galaxy and become the most powerful corporation in the universe. Co-developed with Finnish developer PlayRaven, the free-to-play MMO is set to launch later this year on iOS and Android.
Designed to appeal to both the franchise’s fans as well as more casual players, EVE: War of Ascension establishes a vast, open world, inspiring players to engage in ways that interest them. True to the EVE universe, the game will allow players to create their own stories, choosing to work cooperatively with other players or to fight them for resources. As players progress further in the game, they’ll hunt for mysterious relics that unlock new unexplored areas of space. The game will feature engaging weekly events as well as limited-time promotions.
“EVE: War of Ascension is our first mobile game at CCP and we’re so excited to bring the EVE universe to a new and massive audience,” said CCP CEO Hilmar Veigar Pétursson. “Our goal is to bring our CCP DNA to the mobile market: player-driven content, social interaction, and massive scale collaboration. With great partners like PlayRaven and Kongregate, we’re seeing our vision become a reality.”
“EVE Online has always been an incredible online world, but as one of the most complex and interesting MMO games on PC, it wasn’t always accessible to a broad audience. So when we got the opportunity to partner with CCP and PlayRaven on a mobile EVE experience, we couldn’t have been more excited,” said Emily Greer, CEO and co-founder of Kongregate. “Bringing the community, intrigue, and universe of EVE to millions of mobile players later this year is a banner moment for our publishing program.”
EVE: War of Ascension will be launching later this year on iOS and Android devices.
