The flagship MMORPG from CCP Games is one of the first games optimized for the powerful performance of the M1 chip for Mac
REYKJAVÍK – October 13th, 2021 – CCP Games today announced that EVE Online, the hit sci-fi spaceship MMO enjoyed by more than 24 million players, is now available natively on Mac. Mac users can download the deep spacefaring MMO game for free and join a growing community of interstellar pioneers in the vast star cluster of New Eden.
Check out the latest trailer for the game here.
EVE Online on Mac harnesses Apple’s powerful graphic processing framework, Metal, resulting in improved graphic fidelity, lower memory use, and CPU optimization for a smooth gameplay experience. Additionally, Mac keyboard and mouse shortcuts are now supported in the native Mac client.
“Bringing EVE Online to Mac has been a core goal for us at CCP Games. We’ve worked diligently to improve the game and have collaborated closely with our community to ensure we’re providing the best possible experience to an even wider audience,” said Bergur Finnbogason, EVE Online’s Creative Director. “With the power of Apple’s M1 chip, Mac users can seamlessly fly into New Eden and enjoy the full EVE Online experience the way it is meant to be played – with great performance and graphics. We can’t wait to welcome a new generation of Mac users to EVE Online.”
EVE Online has immersed pilots in the distant star cluster of New Eden for 18 years. Set tens of thousands of years in the future, EVE Online is an immersive, community-driven experience filled with adventure, riches, danger and glory. Players are free to forge their own path and take up a variety of in-game professions, ranging from exploration, trading, bounty hunting, piracy, and much more across 7,000 star systems. The MMO is known for its robust player-driven economy, world record-breaking in-game battles, Machiavellian political intrigue, and array of player-run corporations.
Mac users arriving in New Eden for the first time can experience the MMO’s revamped new player experience, including a narrative-driven training program and customizable skill plans, which were recently introduced in Quadrant 3: Gateway. To celebrate the arrival of Mac users to EVE Online, pilots can participate in a new daily log-in reward campaign stocked with all-new boosters, various celebratory SKINs, and more.
