EVE Online Invite A Friend 60 Day Trial, Crucible Trailer
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

CCP Games has announced a new 60 day trial offer for players of the company's sci-fi MMO, EVE Online. The trial keys give existing players the chance to bring in a friend to try out the game for 60 days. The keys are single use items which must be redeemed by January 24. CCP has also released a new trailer showcasing additions and changes in its recently released Crucible expansion.

So, you’re saying to yourself…”that’s a neat extended trial key, but what is in it for me?” The answer is, honestly not much. Just a bigger richer EVE and a chance to give your favorite person in the world something they can’t get anywhere else. We thought we’d try an experiment and see what would happen if we gave out 60 day trial keys for EVE players to pass on. It’s that simple.

Again, Crucible is about getting EVE back to its roots, it's in-space, player driven roots. Over the years we’ve gone from a “buy now” model, to a short trial, to a longer trial method of getting new players to experience the EVE Universe. Looking back at the data and surveys over the last few years we see people wanting more and more time to get familiar with EVE. The 14 days we settled on is looking a little long in the tooth in the modern world, and honestly, EVE is just really big and players deserve more time to really get into the game.

So, grand experiment #1, give out 350K 60 day trial codes. The only way to get one is to ask an EVE player or have an EVE player ask you. We’re not looking for hordes of l337 kids with ADD We’re hoping that an extended trial to poke around in the EVE universe will give more folks the time needed to get engaged and get involved in EVE Online. And, given the crowded schedule of holidays and new releases around this time of year, we’re hoping that extended play time let’s people pickup and learn EVE at their own pace.
