EVE World Tour Details Announced

One of the more surprising announcements from this year’s EVE Fanfest is that there will be no Fanfest in Iceland in 2019. This doesn’t mean that CCP Games will not be hosting a massive gathering where capsuleers convene. Quite the contrary actually, CCP Games will be hosting the EVE World Tour, which are a series of Fanfest style events at various locations throughout the world in 2019 which will bring an assortment of tournaments, livestreams, unique in-game rewards, reveals, developer roundtables and stellar parties to fans directly, bringing EVE Online closer to its community than ever before.

The EVE World Tour will take place across 2019 in the following locations:

Netherlands: EVEsterdam, Compagnie Theatre – March 23-24
With a keynote presentation, fans will receive a unique look at the universe of EVE Online as told by its developers. Players will make an impact in various ways and you can expect a party worthy of Amsterdam’s nightlife afterwards.

Russia / Baltic Region: EVE St. Petersburg, Akakao – May 4
With one of EVE’s most passionate fanbases, EVE St.Petersburg will bring players from around the region together for a day of merriment, amazing developer-led sessions and exclusive content.

Australia: EVE Down Under, SMC Centre – May 24-26
Travel to Sydney to experience the unique Aussie community spirit, developer-led sessions, exclusive presentations and Q&As, as well PvP tournament action and Sydney nightlife.

Canada: EVE North, Toronto – June 21-23
The first ever official EVE event in Canada will take place in beautiful downtown Toronto. Players will be able to experience PvP tournaments, presentations and party that brings EVE’s signature community.

Finland: Fanfest HOME, Kaimonsaari – August 23
A personal, home-sized version of the legendary Fanfest in a player’s living room. Yes, it’s crazy… but that’s nothing new for CCP.

Germany: G-fleet Berlin, AltMunze – September 13-14
Taking place in the heartland of PC gaming, exclusive developer-led presentations, PvP tournaments and a huge party await EVE fans in Berlin next September.

USA: EVE Vegas, Las Vegas – October 25-27
EVE Vegas has been the official tentpole event for EVE fans in Las Vegas for years, hence needs no introduction. Over one thousand EVE players descend on the city of sin for a few days every year to discuss important spaceship business and party. It breaks attendance records every time and in 2019 it aims to be bigger and crazier than ever.

UK: EVE London, Indigo at the 02 Arena – November 23
Held at the world-famous O2 Arena, EVE London brings the classic pub-meet of legend into 2019 and puts it into overdrive. Expect a performance by Permaband and one huge party to cap off an amazing year of EVE Online.

Speaking from personal experience, EVE Fanfest and EVE Vegas are great EVEnts and well worth going to for any capsuleer. As much as I may have been looking forward to returning to Reykjavik next year it’s exciting to see all the different locations for the multiple conventions.
