Belonging: An EVE Fanfest Documentary
Produced by the talented team at The Escapist, ‘Belonging: An EVE Fanfest Documentary’ explores the community that powers EVE Online, the unique celebration that is Fanfest, and the impact the gathering has on the future of New Eden. It’s all part of the build-up to EVE Fanfest 2023, which takes place 21-23 September, marking the culmination of this year’s EVE 20th anniversary celebrations.
For two decades EVE Online itself has brought people together into a one-of-a-kind online community where lifetime friendships and powerful bonds are formed. EVE’s pilots are much more than players. Their collective contributions to the EVE universe form the fabric of New Eden, from spontaneous events that shift the power balance of the Empires, to their feedback to the dev team. Every player that steps into EVE’s world has an important role to play. That’s even truer at Fanfest itself, where together we create and share memorable experiences and guide the future of EVE Online and its journey to forever.
EVE Fanfest is also about reconnecting with a community spread across the world, catching up with friends, partying until late with in-game rivals and allies alike, and forming memories to cherish for life. You might even find a bit of time for some in-person scheming and plotting.
Speaking of partying, if you’re lucky enough to have secured tickets for EVE Fanfest’s infamous Party at the Top of the World, you’ll be able to catch the debut performance by the new EVE in-house band, Crowd Kon7rol. Formed of EVE devs and other CCP staff, cyber popsters Crowd Kon7rol are live on stage at Fanfest ready to dazzle with a debut of their new single . Just can’t wait? You can check out the music video to ‘On Top of the World’ right here.
