EVE Online's New Eden will have an extra layer of security as of today, with CCP rolling out mandatory email verification to all new accounts. Email verification is the first of several upcoming security improvements for EVE, one that brings the 10-year-old game closer in step with more recent releases.
The process will be familiar to MMO veterans: When creating an EVE account, all new players must validate the registered email address by following instructions provided in an email from CCP. Existing EVE players have the option of verifying their email addresses as well; a new "Verify Email Address" option has been added to the game's account management page.
CCP encourages all users to log into EVE's account management system to ensure their information is correct and to take advantage of the new verification system.
