Jon Lander, perhaps better known asn CCP Unifex, is stepping down from his role as EVE Online’s executive producer to head up the developer’s mobile division. PC Games N reports Lander has only held the job for about a year, weathering the fallout from the Incarna expansion, and overseeing three much better-received efforts in the interim. CCP is seeking external applicants to replace Lander; maybe you’d like to apply.

Holy balls, check out this interactive timeline of the history of CCP’s groundbreaking MMO, EVE Online. For a game that’s really turned into a story about how people play together, it’s got a heck of a lot of backstory, and CCP plans to expand it in the future with player-authored events. It’s kind of exciting to think that new updates and even player actions could have a place on here one day.

CCP has been listening closely to the EVE Online community, and has a pile of starbase improvements planned for the Odyssey update during northern summer.

This new trailer for Dust 514 provides a bit of context for all those airstrikes you like to call in during the middle of all those multiplayer matches. It all seems much more exciting than usual in this trailer, really. Look at it inside.

CCP has announced and dated the 19th expansion for its nearly decade-old but only more interesting MMO EVE Online.

A live event adding further integration between Dust 514 and Eve Online will take place this weekend, according to CCP. The Battle of Caldari Prime starts Friday morning and the devs predict it will be a rather large battle compared to the skirmishes which are already taking place. This will allow players to start “self-scripting” the lore and give Dust 514 players a better idea of the scope via these real-time events. Participant will earn a commemorative dropsuit, and you can watch the events unfold through Twitch. You can find out more on the Ballet for Caldari Prime through a Massively interview with senior producer Arnar Hrafn Gylfason. Dust 514 is in beta and will launch sometime this year.

CCP has announced plans for an official player council to promote the community’s needs, just as sister-MMO EVE Online has its Council of Stellar Management. The community organisation has not been named, but is being called the War Council, and CCP is actively seeking suggestions for “the most helpful, active and knowledgeable community members” to be its first representatives. Details are yet to be locked down, but more information is available in the announcement on the PlayStation 3 shooter’s forums.

Seeking to find a way to prevent users from experiencing corrupted downloads for the EVE Online client, CCP is going to give Bittorrent a go. The file-sharing take should make downloads more efficient.

CCP has said its World of Darkness MMO is being played internally at the studio.

CCP has patched EVE Online, overhauling the user interface and module system, adding the skill Armor Honeycombing, and enacting some art tweaks. That’s all well and good, but the update also rebalances nine more Tier 1 ships, so expect the usual roars of outrage over nerfing and overpowered buffing. Full patch notes are available on the EVE Online community site.

Both Crytek and CCP expect Sony and Microsoft to be more open to non-traditional business models with new platforms.

EVE Online players have requested the developer provide proof of wrongdoing when handing out bans, and escalate protests as high as posible. CCP has refused, saying it can’t escalate higher than its own CEO, and protesting it wields the ban hammer based on “actual empirical evidence” pulled from servers, which for various legal and technical reasons cannot be made accessible to players. The scandal at the heart of the drama involves a player from a generally “good” corporation receiving a ban for using bots and the community’s incapacity to believe he might have been cheating. It has been lovingly chronicled on Destructoid if you’d like to jump down the rabbit hole.

CCP has announce EVE Fanfest 2013 has completely sold out, with 50% more tickets sold than last year. However, don’t be sad: in the coming weeks, the firm will reveal its plans to live stream the event. So, that’s at least some consolation if you weren’t able to secure tickets. EVE Fanfest takes place in Reykjavik, Iceland at the Harpa Concert Hall April 25-27, and 1,400 people bought tickets, according to the press release.

EVE Fanfest will be rocking Iceland’s Harpa Concert Hall in April, and to get attendees excited over it along with the EVE 10th anniversary celebrations, CCP has released a teaser trailer for the event. EVE Fanfest takes place April 25-27, and according to Massively, there will be “plenty of alcohol, live bands, DUST 514 shenanigans, and the Icelandic Philharmonic Orchestra” on-hand.

The DUST 514 open beta flung its doors wide this morning, and to give you an idea of what to expect in it, CCP has released a trailer. While PvE isn’t live in the beta, and the developers haven’t said when it’s coming, the game does contain plenty of PvP, so log in to the Tranquility server, if you dare, and start fighting your brethren. Thanks, PCgamesN.
