EVE: War of Ascension launches on Android (Update: Not available everywhere)
Update – June 11: It appears that EVE: War of Ascension is only available in some parts of the world at the moment, and has not launched worldwide yet.
Original story – June 10: Fans of the long running space-based MMO EVE Online now have a free-to-play mobile spinoff to check out. EVE: War of Ascension, which was first announced in October 2017 under the codename Project Aurora, has now launched and can be downloaded in some parts of the world from the Google Play Store.
Co-developed by PlayRaven and published by Kongregate, EVE: War of Ascension has many of the same gameplay features at EVE Online. You still can build massive fleets and battle for prized space regions against hundreds of other online opponents at once. You can also form corporations with other players and team up with them to conquer or steal resources from enemy groups. You can also construct your own space station.
EVE: War of Ascension’s graphics are highly simplified compared to the main EVE Online game for the PC. However, if you want to wait a year or so, you might be able to get a mobile game that looks and plays more like its PC counterpart. In a surprise post on its Twitter page this week, EVE Online’s developer CCP Games announced what it called “Project Galaxy” in collaboration with China-based NetEase. The announcement stated it will offer mobile gamers “the authentic EVE Online experience” sometime in 2019.
An Android version of Project Galaxy will be available after the iOS version ships. We intend to release on both platforms!— CCP Games (@CCPGames) June 4, 2018
While the game will be released first for iOS, CCP Games did confirm “Project Galaxy” will launch for Android afterwards in a follow-up post. More info on the game itself will be revealed later.
