Gen Con Interview Preview

Posted by Jon Wood on Aug 15, 2008  | Comments

Gen Con Interview Preview - EVE Online - Community Manager Richard Cox writes this preview teaser article, giving you and overview of the interview and letting you know what to expect when the GenCon video hits the site! This time around, it's EVE Online.

The great folks at CCP granted us an interview with Scott Holden, Lead Content Creator and Tony Gonzalez, IP Development Manager, Lead Writer and Novelist. As with most of the interviews from GenCon this one was done on video, so consider this just a short teaser/overview

One of the things we talked a lot about was getting new players interested in EVE. The new storyline aspect of the Empyrean Age expansion pack is designed to do that, since it’s easier to draw new players when they feel like they’re part of something. New players are less interested in knowing that they can run a huge 5,000+ person corporation than they are in knowing they can impact the game in some way, be part of something bigger, etc. The sandbox approach is great for a core audience and your existing players, but it can be quite daunting for newer people to the game and genre. They also mentioned how the storyline elements would take a bigger role in upcoming advertisement.
