In a galaxy far, far away
CCP already has a partnership with Finnish developer PlayRaven to develop another new mobile game set in the Eve Universe.
PlayRaven’s new mobile Eve game EVE: War of Ascension will be free-to-play MMO, which will task players with working together to create the most powerful corporation and dominating the centre of the galaxy.
Eve Online is a popular space MMO for PC in which players join giant corporations vying for control over territory in space. It is best known for its enormous PvP battles and player-created stories.
