There was an article released to the official Eve Online website which announced ” EVE KOREA IS NOW LIVE! “
In the article the full localization of Eve Online has been launched coinciding with the “enormous G-Star 2019 event in Korea to support this release.” CEO Hilmar V. Pétursson was stated to be at the event giving a presentation along with a selection of CCP Games developers attending the event attending G-Star 2019 to help with the promotion of this launch event for Eve Online.
Also mentioned in the article are “…opportunity for existing and prospective Korean Capsuleers, as well as all attendees of G-Star, to get hands-on experience with the Korean version of EVE Online, including opportunities to experience elements of the game that would not normally be immediately accessible to new players.”
This new addition of players should help to fill the Asia-Pacific time zones which according to CCP,” …players from Japan, Australia and New Zealand – will see a marked rise in activity and presence, which will naturally bring more content and excitement to the game at those times.”
And we all know that more content and more players should be pretty good news for all Eve Online players.
Here are some twitter photos taken from the event presumably by CEO Hilmar V. Pétursson and retweeted on the official Eve Online twitter page depicting the G-Star 2019 Event in Korea.
As you can see it is a massive turnout for the event, and a huge showing off of Eve Online to the Korean Community, and I think this is another amazing job by the teams at CCP Games, subsidiary of Pearl Abyss. It should be noted that Pearl Abyss Acquired CCP Games in October 2018, and the CEO of Pearl Abyss Robin Jung, is on record stating:
CCP’s dedicated fans have nothing to worry about. No changes are coming at CCP and in its flagship game.CEO of Pearl Abyss Robin Jung
The hard work and dedication of both CCP Games and Pearl Abyss never ceases to amaze me, as far as gaming companies go, you can’t go wrong with CCP, they have always done good work and they are passionate about their game, the community, and the future work to sustain CCP Games Mission statement of ” Our mission is to create virtual worlds more meaningful than real life”, which will go nicely with the Pearl Abyss mission statement “To create the best MMOs in the world.”
I was wondering what kind of impact the G-Star 2019 event would have on the Eve Online, so I logged in and asked for the korean help channel, I quickly received the name ” korean ” which is the official Korean language channel in the game.
Logging into the korean chat MOTD [Message of the Day explained via UniWiki] displays this: [21:17:39] EVE System > Channel MOTD:
