EVE Online: Ascension offers free access to acclaimed sci-fi MMO universe

The deep, player-driven experience of EVE Online is now wide open to anyone willing to take up the challenge of exploring with, warring against, and scheming amidst hundreds of thousands of other players in the massive space sandbox that is the EVE universe.

There are very rare games that are as addictive as space combat online multiplayer game EVE Online. As the company realizes the addictive quality of its game, it has now come up with a new pricing standard with its latest extension - Ascension - that allows new players to check out the complete EVE universe for free.

The new pricing paradigm, called the Clone States, has removed the free trial accounts and now allows every user to play the game for free 'forever', as per the company. However, it is essential to note that this free access does come with certain restrictions. The new players will be Alpha Clones by default and will have access to a limited number of spaceships, comprising Tech 1 frigates, destroyers, and cruisers as well as specific skill sets.

On the other hand, Omega Clones will act similarly to currently active members and will have unlimited access to skill progression and rapid skill training. In order to upgrade from Alpha to Omega, users will have to pay a monthly subscription fee of roughly ₹. 700 or GBP 7 roughly ₹. 600.

Ascension expansion further incorporates new sandbox gameplay features including the addition of Engineering Complexes, a new class of player-built structures allowing comprehensive research and manufacturing support and promoting the progress of Citadel structures.
Another new mode in the game - Inception - comes with fully voice-acted mentors, well-designed UI help, and a grand, unfolding storyline, CCP pointed out in its press release.

"This, in turn, means that our universe is more interesting, more exciting and more dangerous with each additional citizen," Nordgren added.

It will be fascinating to see if this new move by the company leads to something like the $500,000 online battle in 2014 that brought the game into attention worldwide.
