EVE Online addicts got their wish last year when developer CCP games announced EVE Anywhere, a browser-based platform for streaming the popular space MMO. Today it is open to all EVE players, not just premium Omega subscribers. All you need is a modern browser, such as Chrome, Edge, Safari or Firefox, and a solid 25 Mbps internet to stream space battles. EVE Anywhere is rolling out in the US and select European countries, such as Germany, Switzerland and the UK, with more territories to be added later this year.
CCP says it relies on Intel technology to stream the game to players through high-capacity servers. While EVE diehards aren’t likely to give up their PC installations anytime soon, EVE Anywhere lets them pull in a few sessions when they’re away from home (but never at work, no one would). The platform can also serve as a gateway for players with slow and outdated hardware. After all, even a Chromebook could stream EVE Anywhere.
