CCP sets UK Eve Online subscription at £10 a month

Pay in pounds rather than euros from May.

You'll be able to pay for Eve Online in pounds rather than euros from May, CCP has announced.

Beginning 1st May, you can use pounds sterling to pay for your Eve Online subscription. This, Icelandic developer CCP said, will result in an estimated 20 per cent price reduction versus the current rate.

This change aims to "accommodate requests by the UK community" to pay in British pounds rather than in euros, CCP said. The regularly monthly subscription fee will be £9.99 for UK players.

"UK players have been an important part of the Eve community from the very beginning, organising some of the very first player meets, being at the forefront of Eve's PvP alliances and expanding the Eve experience with such creations as the epic Clear Skies movies," CCP said.

"The enthusiasm and creativity of these players has only underlined the importance of the UK market as we enter a very exciting time for the Eve Universe."

Eve Online has more than 400,000 subscribers, and, according to CCP, is the only MMO to have grown every year in the past eight years since launch.
