In December, UK and German players will be able to get their hands on this special retail edition of the game, which besides the usual trial subscription and collectible goodies, will include a unique in-game item called a Cerebral Accelerator.
Within EVE, skills such as piloting and space combat are improved by selecting one to level up and allowing a set amount of time to elapse. The more advanced the skill, the longer it takes, but skills continue to develop even when the player is offline. The Cerebral Accelerator will significantly increase the speed at which players learn new skills, allowing new players who purchases the Commissioned Officer Edition to make strides in catching up to those who have played EVE for years.
I played EVE when it came out some seven years ago, and was impressed by the graphics, the scale and the sheer range of activities available to players. From interplanetary mining to space piracy, there was something to suit anyone who enjoys starships and science fiction. Over time, CCP have released numerous patches to add content to EVE, including the ability to explore orbital stations; new ship designs; and recently allowing players to set up mining operations on the surface of planets.
The bulk of EVE is played on a single server (two, if you count the Chinese alternate server), meaning that the majority of the player base is involved in a real-time conflict over many thousands of star systems. Whether you’re new to EVE, or a lapsed player considering a comeback, the Commissioned Officer Edition could be just the thing you need to get back into the action.
