The creators of EVE Online
are going all-out with their storyline-driven factional warfare in The Empyrean Age
expansion, which is less than a day away from launch. They're injecting the coming struggle with as much gritty realism as they can muster. Massively has already covered the formation of EVE Online's
in-game news organization, called Interstellar Correspondents
, but it looks like the staff at CCP Games
is setting their sites a bit higher.
In a recent dev blog, CCP Ginger discussed the concept of embedded reporting
in New Eden. Specifically, there will be war correspondents who report on the events that transpire during the clashes between factions. These members of Interstellar Correspondents will be in the thick of the action and report on world shaping events to the populace of New Eden.
