CCP Games looks to be genuinely committed to offering players the opportunity to play EVE Online almost literally anywhere possible. Especially when it comes to understanding that last week, we had the announcement of the game being playable in the form of Excel spreadsheets. This week, the CCP team has announced that the game will now play in browsers as well as through the cloud.
CCP Games has announced a cloud-based platform that allows players to play EVE Online from their favorite browser. It''s developed in partnership with Intel to allow pilots to command their fleets through Chrome, Edge, Firefox, and Safari on any desktop or laptop computer.
In a press release, CCP Games explained how this platform works:
EVE Anywhere is powered by Intel, which allows CCP to remotely access high-capacity servers with advanced CPUs via the cloud. By operating in the cloud, EVE Anywhere eliminates hardware limitations and opens up the MMOs iconic adventures to new audience members.
This improves both the accessibility and speed of the game, as anyone can play virtually anywhere they want, and seamlessly switch between a web browser and the EVE Online client launcher.
EVE Online''s Creative Director, Bergur Finnbogason, said the following thing:
EVE Anywhere was absolutely delighted by those who tried it out in beta over the past year. We truly appreciate you Capsuleers who shared great feedback to assist us improve the experience. Upon all of your help, you were finally able to get EVE Anywhere into your hands, no matter your browser preferences.
Some players may not like EVE Anywhere. It was originally presented as a beta last year for select members in European regions. It was enjoyed by enthusiastic fans and had over 11,000 users across the globe who have streamed 86,000 sessions.
This new platform is currently following its limited beta version and is now available to all EVE players in the United States and select European regions. EVE Anywhere will be available for additional territories later this year.
