EVE Echoes, the spaceship sandbox MMO on mobile

A new immersive space sandbox MMO, bringing the authentic EVE Online experience to mobile.

I do remember playing Even Online on PC many many years ago. I didn’t have time for it and it seemed quite complicated. Eve Echoes for mobile came out of beta last week. I’ve been playing for a few days now and quite impressed.

It’s a huge universe, there are many aspects to the game I haven’t even gotten around to exploring yet. I haven’t moved to a paid “Omega Clone” account, but apart from not all markets being open to me (need to be on one of the major trading hubs to trade with an “Alpha Clone” ) I haven’t felt restricted

I’ve also played many similar empire/universe/base building mobile games. Most recently Star Trek Fleet Command was ok but once you’re over level 20 it’s pretty much Pay to Win, and I dropped out after my base and all resources got plundered while I was away for a weekend.

I play it on my 10in tablet when on the go, and sometimes on BlueStacks for PC so I can partipate in my corporation’s Discord server more easily. I can play for just a little here and there, doesn’t feel like a huge time sink.

Graphics and mechanics are very nice and definitely scratches the sci-fi gaming itch.

Anyone else tried it out?

I shortly tried it today, and I must admit that I got some feels from 10 years ago when I launched Eve Online for the first time. I’ll certainly try it a bit, and it might be a good game to play here and there in short bursts.

Unfortunately, it’s also visually cluttered, even on a fairly large screen (6.4’'). It’s still spreadsheets in space, and not the kind of game you’d play half-focused.

OK i got lost in the Eve Echoes universe for the past week or two just climbed out of the hole to check other socials.

I like that apart from the beta players we’re all about similar tech levels being early in the universe. I play on my 10in Xiaomi MiPad4 plus which is 10in and it’s a good game for that. Sometimes I also use Bluestacks on my PC because i can keep discord open in another window. So many options.

I do like that you have to pay attention in game… so many ‘strategy’ mobile games are build and wait, there always seems like things to do in this game so far.

I tried the beta, I enjoyed it. Haven’t played since so I’ll probably get it.

You say asset safety, Eve developers say Garbage Collection…

I’ll keep it in mind but the game is so new at the moment I don’t think they’re doing that in the Eve Echoes universe until there’s more garbage littered around to clean up.

It’s quite thematically sound I’ve read a bunch of sci-fi where old station junk is the prize. I’ve only invested $5 for a month of one of my clones to be an Omega clone instead of Alpha, I quite like the free-to-play bits, and I’m even finally getting the scavenging and crafting things bit of the game instead of just PVE
