Tickets for Eve Fanfest 2013, the next iteration of the annual in-person celebration of Eve Online and its universe, are now available for purchase.
Early bird pricing is in effect, with single tickets on sale for £79 (approximately $128) each; regular-price tickets cost $145. Numerous other events are also available, including a pre-convention tourist excursion with Eve Online developers for $39, and the post-event Blue Lagoon Hangover Party in Iceland's notable geothermal spa for $75. The day before Fanfest, the Iceland Symphony Orchestra will perform a concert for the game's 10th anniversary, although prices for symphony tickets aren't yet available.
Fanfest itself will consist of dozens of presentations, panels and roundtable discussions featuring Eve Online developers from CCP Games, along with player-versus-player tournaments. The studio will provide further details on Dust 514, the upcoming PlayStation 3 tie-in to the Eve universe, and on its vision for the future of Eve Online.
"It's the one event each year where players from all corners of the globe and every walk of life come together to participate in a shared experience around this amazing thing we have created together," said CCP Games CEO Hilmar Pétursson in a press release announcing ticket availability. "We're pulling out all the stops as we head into our second decade of Eve — it's going to be the most mind-blowing Fanfest ever."
Eve Fanfest 2013 is scheduled to take place from April 25 to April 27, 2013, at the Harpa Conference Center in Reykjavik, Iceland. Tickets can be purchased here. For more on Eve Online, check out our article on its new expansion, Retribution.
