The CCP Presents Keynote at the annual EVE Online Fanfest is usually a fairly tame retrospective on how CCP has a company has done the past year and where it’s going in the future, but for EVE‘s tenth anniversary, CCP broke out the big guns. In addition to announcing a massive new collector’s edition, the studio has also revealed plans to turn real stories of events inside the sandbox into professional comic books and even a TV series.
Industry giant Dark Horse Comics, the company responsible for comics like Hellboy and Sin City, will be publishing the 54-page graphic novel this winter in both a paid-for print form and a free digital download. For the lore buffs among us, Dark Horse will also be producing a colossal 184-page glossy colour hardback book covering all of the NPC backstory and lore behind EVE Online and DUST 514. Titled EVE Source, the book will be an in-character almanac of everything in the EVE setting that isn’t player-created and will even include previously unreleased concept art.
