CCP Games is bringing an authentic EVE Online experience to mobile next year with EVE: Echoes. The game, announced at this year’s EVE Vegas gathering, will be set in an alternate universe version of New Eden, EVE Online’s galaxy.

Unlike the previously announced EVE: War of Ascension, EVE: Echoes strives to be more of a traditional EVE Online experience, complete with your customary interstellar wars, trade, and exploration. You’ll be free to set your own destiny in a huge galaxy inhabited by other players. The game will be a social experience, much like EVE Online. Players can join or form corporations, build alliances, and capture rival territories in large scale wars.
