Icelandic developer Crowd Control Productions has dragged their EVE Online MMORPG kicking and screaming into phase seven of beta testing, announcing the installation of a new server cluster to boot. What's more, the Non-Disclosure Agreement which binds EVE players to silence will be dropped within a week, as the game's capacity edges above 100,000 players.

"This is a very big milestone for EVE as we are getting close to the game going gold," said Reynir Hardarson, art director and co-founder of Crowd Control. "We cannot thank our testers enough," he added.

EVE Online is due out simultaneously in the US and Europe on May 6th - from Simon & Schuster across the pond and from Crucial Entertainment over here.
