EVE Gate Test Begins Tomorrow! - EVE Online -

CCP Games has announced via their Developer Blog that the first public test for the upcoming "EVE Gate" feature, which is set to debut with the launch of Tyrannis in May, will begin tomorrow, March 23rd.

For the unfamiliar, EVE Gate is the renamed New Eden feature, which in turn is a rename of the COSMOS feature. But what is EVE Gate exactly? Well, according to CCP it will be your "gate into EVE." D'uh! EVE Gate will allow players to interact with EVE through any ordinary web browser. The feature has been designed with scalability in mind from the get-go, though initial offerings will be limited to communication and collaboration tools, including access to in-game mail and a calendar. Players will also be able to use EVE Gate to post updates for players, corporations, and alliances.

Beginning tomorrow, EVE players will able to access the very first public iteration of EVE Gate, which will be limited in features. The aim of the test is to essentially stress the hardware in order to find bottlenecks and weaknesses before the system goes live in May.
