EVE Online Retail Box Includes 60 Days of Game Time

Developer CCP has revealed the contents of the upcoming EVE Online (PC) retail release, set for launch on March 10.

The box will conveniently include all ten of the free expansions to the spaceship MMO, including the major upcoming update "Apocrypha." nope In addition, the box will also ship with 60 days of free game time. As the by-month subscription to EVE costs $14.95, and the retail box costs $34.95, the thing will nearly pay for itself.

CCP also notes that the game time can be used to extend an existing subscription, or be split into two 30-day codes that can be sold for in-game currency. Only in EVE.

A few more retail bonuses after the break:

  • INSTANT WAR ACCESS: This certificate allows rapid access to organized combat (through increased standings), helping new players get into the action quickly.
  • EXCLUSIVE CAREER GUIDE: Accessed via the website to allow for dynamic updates, the guide includes insider tips and tricks.
  • VIP PASS: Use this card to invite a friend to try the game for 21 days. When that friend becomes an EVE Online subscriber, you will get an additional 30 days of free game time.
  • EXCLUSIVE IN-GAME SHIP: An exclusive new ship, the Interbus Shuttle, will allow players to fly in style with an increased capacity cargo hold to ferry those extra crucial items at high speeds.
