EVE Online Mac Announced
7:25 AM | Tuncer Deniz | 5 comments

CCP Games today announced it has partnered with TransGaming Inc to bring the former's popular massively multiplayer online game (MMOG), EVE Online, to Mac and Linux. The Mac version will use TransGaming Cider technology, a portability engine that speeds up the process of bring PC titles to the Mac with the need for a traditional line by line code port.

The game is set in a science-fiction based, persistent world. Players take the role of spaceship pilots seeking fame, fortune, and adventure in a huge, complex, exciting, and sometimes hostile galaxy.

“We’re pleased to extend our relationship with TransGaming, as the company’s expertise allows us to deliver the most innovative MMOG to more platforms,” said Halldor Fannar, CTO of CCP Games. “By integrating TransGaming’s excellent technology, we are able to keep our laser-focus on evolving EVE Online, while simultaneously expanding the EVE universe to even more players.”

“EVE Online has always ranked highly with our Linux users and there is significant demand for it among other platforms, including the rapidly growing Mac base,” said Vikas Gupta, CEO of TransGaming Technologies. “As EVE takes place within a single-server persistent universe, it’s vital that the game is identical in every way across different platforms. This challenge is what makes the partnership with CCP both important and rewarding.”

EVE Online for the Mac and Linux are both expected to be released later this year.
