EVE Fanfest 2014 is an event that gathers players in a massive celebration of the virtual world of EVE Online. Developer CCP has just posted the schedule on a massive developer blog post on the EVE Online forums. This schedule shows everything attendees of the Fanfest will be able to see and do. This event takes place from May 1st through May 3rd, and will have several events along with the programming, round tables, and sessions that EVE fans are used to.
The night before the event begins, an official EVE monument will be unveiled in Reykjavik’s harbor. This monument will be dedicated to the loyal fans who made EVE’s first decade possible. To learn more about this monument, visit the EVE website. The next event will be the EVE of Destruction battle, which pits 10 CCP developers and special guests against undefeated world-class MMA fighter Gunnar “Gunni” Nelson in back to back submission fights.
At the EVE Real session, a physicist and NASA technologist Les Johnson will host a presentation about how mankind can overcome the challenges of interstellar travel. They will also talk about how someday we could visit and settle on other planets using technologies that don’t violate the known laws of physics. Major announcements for the future of EVE Online, Dust 514, and EVE: Valkyrie will be made during the event.
If you could not attend the event, it will be streamed for free on CCP’s Twitch channel, as well as available for purchase in HD. A Pre-Fanfest Livestream will take place on April 24 at 18:00 GMT on CCP’s Twitch channel. On this livestream, lead game designer and executive producers of EVE: Valkyrie and DUST 514 will be discussing all things related to the EVE universe.
