The open beta for EVE Echoes — a mobile variant of the popular MMORPG by CCP Games — is now available on iOS and Android to players in Australia, USA, Canada, Russia, Europe, South Korea, and New Zealand.
EVE Echoes, in a partnership with CCP Games, is being developed by NetEase, a Chinese company dedicated to PC and mobile games. EVE Echoes is set in an alternate universe of New Eden for players to experience on mobile devices. “In addition to retaining EVE’s signature gameplay mechanics, EVE Echoes also includes basic tutorials for new players to advance and enhance their space-faring experience.”
The mobile game’s open beta includes the following features:
- “Expanded game content: Ships, Modules & Drones: EVE Echoes is dedicated to bringing the enormous universe of EVE 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 – ‘Interstellar Trading Center (ITC)’ – has been opened up. In addition, a new mission type – Storyline Missions – has been added to Encounters. All players joining 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.
- Improvements, adjustments & optimization: Additional adjustments are being brought in the Open Beta: the ship fitting slots are now divided into three new types to make them more distinct, plus the skill training and leveling up systems have been revised as well. The EVE Echoes team will continue game optimization throughout the Open Beta to improve the overall gameplay experience.”
