EVE Online Expands to China, Gets 450,000 Subscribers

The Retribution expansion prompted an increase in game sales

Video game developer CCP says that the launch of the Retribution expansion has pushed the game over the 450,000 subscriber mark, with all gamers playing on the same server, and that the re-launch on the Chinese market has also done well after only seven days on sale.

Veigar Petursson, the chief executive officer at CCP, is quoted by VG247 as saying that, “I can’t think of a better way to kick off our celebration of our tenth anniversary than bringing a new era of EVE Online to mainland China, and I welcome them into the world of New Eden as we enter into our second decade of growth and prosperity for EVE.”

EVE Online has received no less than 18 expansions until now and the MMO is well known for the treachery and political elements it includes.
