CCP Games and BBC Studios have announced an original crossover event between Doctor Who and the free-to-play deep space-faring MMO EVE Online.
Universes will collide as Capsuleers and Doctor Who fans face the Daleks together in massive space battles in EVE Online x Doctor Who starting 13 January until 1 February.
EVE Online is a free-to-play, community-driven spaceship MMO game where players can choose their own path among the stars from countless options, developed by CCP Games in Reykjavik.
The game first launched in 2003 and has since gained recognition for its scale, complexity, and the world record-breaking exploits of its online community. EVE Online is one of the most critically acclaimed MMORPG intellectual properties (IPs) in time and space, and one of the most extensive works of science fiction in the world.
Bergur Finnbogason, EVE Online’s Creative Director said
Kevin Jorge, Senior Producer at BBC Studios added
EVE Online x Doctor Who introduces new, Gallifrey-themed space where players will search for artifacts from Doctor Who’s Great Time War. The artifacts will provide players with clues to track down the Daleks and face them in an interstellar battle of the ages. Players who survive the fight will reap unique rewards that they can take back to New Eden. Additionally, a login campaign with skill points and Doctor Who-themed items will be available to all players throughout the duration of the event.
