Ambulation: A Walking Tour of EVE

Ambulation: A Walking Tour of EVE -

While attending the New York Comic Con the team had to do a lot of walking around the city and the convention center, so it's fitting that they also had the the opportunity to talk to the folks at CCP about their Ambulation Project, which will allow pod pilots to pop out and test their space legs walking around EVE's new social environments. News Manager Keith Cross reports on the status of this feature which is still under construction, and CCP's showing at the con in general.

Over the weekend just past I had the privilege of attending the New York Comic Con, and this year there was a fairly strong showing by MMO developers and the MMO community.  Among the development houses in attendance this year was CCP – Whitewolf, officially known now as CCP North America.  They were there to display and demo EVE at their booth, do a few panel presentations, and deny that they are working on a World of Darkness MMO while wearing shirts with ‘World of Darkness Dev Team’ written on their backs.  They were also showing some of the non electronic games from White Wolf including a card game called Mwahahaha!, which we demoed at the CCP booth on the first day of the convention.  In the game you play the role of a super villain and your goal is to dominate the planet while ruthlessly hampering your opponent’s ability to do the same.  The game projects an insane sense of humor which makes it easy to laugh while your minions are getting wiped out and your opponents rob you of your resources.  It was a good time, even when you’re getting your ass handed to you by a guy named Viceroy Roboticus or Doctor Hitler.  Of course similar feelings are common in games from CCP, where even if you get trounced in a PvP battle, it can still be fun if you lose.

But if you find yourself playing EVE and you just don’t feel like having the fun of getting podded today, CCP is in the process of preparing a space where pod pilots can get away from the kill or be killed environment of deep space and relax.  I’m speaking of the ongoing Ambulation Project, the addition to EVE Online which will allow players to walk around on space stations.
