CCP Games, an independent developer and publisher of massively multiplayer online games, today announced the public release of "EVE OnlineÂ®: Red Moon Rising", a new expansion to its highly successful and fast-growing Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG) "EVE Online: Exodus". Red Moon Rising is scheduled for release this December, and will be provided to subscribers free of charge.
"Red Moon Rising is the last of the EXODUS chapters and is the precursor of the Kali expansion," said Magnus Bergsson, CMO of CCP Games. "Players will see new ships and features in Red Moon Rising created explicitly to augment warfare, so those who crave the adrenaline rush of action-packed PVP will really enjoy this release!"
With nearly 80,000 active subscribers and over 17,000 simultaneous users on one server, "EVE Online" is the largest independently developed and published MMORPG on the market.
"The introduction of these new components is analogous to adding rooks, knights, and the mighty queen to a galactic chessboard," said Nathan Richardsson, Lead Producer for EVE Online. "Fighters, carriers, and titans are going to take combat to a scale that the MMPORG genre has never seen before. In addition, the sheer economics required just to produce these leviathans will create great opportunities for industrious-minded gamers to take advantage of."
EVE Online: Red Moon Rising is the march towards an epic clash between the empires as the tentative peace presiding over the galaxy continues to slip away. Nations begin to conspire against one another, secretly preparing for the inevitable conflict that threatens to redefine the borderlines of EVE forever.
