Eve Online announces Doctor Who crossover event where you fight Daleks • Eurogamer.net
Eve Online will welcome Doctor Who’s most iconic foes in an unprecedented crossover event, which kicks off next week on January 13.
A teaser for the crossover – dubbed The Interstellar Convergence – appeared on Eve’s YouTube channel this afternoon, but offers little clue as to exactly what will happen next.
Nonetheless, we do see the time vortex of the iconic BBC sci-fi series and, at the end of it, a Dalek mothership light up. “Restoration of weapon systems!” Cried a familiar voice from Dalek.
This is far from Doctor Who’s first foray into the world of video games, despite being the franchise’s most high-profile gaming adventure in some time.
Today’s tease was more of a surprise to fans of Eve Online – a fairly straightforward MMO that traditionally doesn’t feature crossovers. Comments on the teaser range from those saying Eve already has her own tradition to deal with, to those now asking for a Star Trek crossover next.
“Eve Online x Doctor Who introduces a new Gallifrey-themed space where players will search for Doctor Who’s Great Time War artifacts,” reads an attached blurb. “The artifacts will provide players with clues to track down the infamous Daleks and face them in an interstellar battle of the ages.
“Players who survive the battle will reap unique rewards that they can bring back to New Eden. In addition, a Login Campaign with skill points and Doctor Who-themed items will be available to all players throughout the game. duration of the event. “
If you’re interested, don’t delay. With no time travel at your disposal, the Eve Online Doctor Who event will run until February 1.
