CCP, one of the worldâ€™s leading independent game developers, has announced a new boxed retail edition of the award-winning science fiction masterpiece EVE Online. This fall, the leading sci-fi MMORPG will be arriving in an updated retail package with exceptional support for new pilots in the EVE OnlineÂ®: Commissioned Officer Edition. This latest boxed edition will include an exclusive in-game item, the Cerebral Accelerator, which is a military-grade implant that significantly increases a new pilotâ€™s skill development. While they are a very strong boost to nearly all abilities, these bonuses are temporary and are only effective for the first 30 days of a pilotâ€™s life as they get up to speed in the universe. The Commissioned Officer Edition also includes a CD key for starting a new account, 30 days paid game subscription time and an EVE poster with helpful hints and tips for getting started on the reverse side. This edition can be used to start a new account or to convert a free trial or buddy program trial account into a full account with the access and benefits afforded to all EVE subscribers. The Cerebral Accelerator will be delivered to the first character created on the account and cannot be acquired through any other source. â€œThe Commissioned Officers Edition is the best way for a new player to get a running start in the highly competitive environment of EVE Onlineâ€ says Sr. Producer Arnar Gylfason. CCP has partnered with Atari for publishing and distribution of EVE Online: Commissioned Officer Edition in North America. EMEA market publishing and distribution plans of this edition will be announced at a later date. The Commissioned Officer Edition can be pre-ordered at a number of leading game retailers. This edition, the finest ever for a new EVE pilot just getting started, will not be available via digital distribution.
