New Year’s Eve Online now fully accessible via web browser thanks to new feature Eve Everywhere service.
The service has been open to Omega subscribers for the past few months in beta, but it is now also available to Alpha players (via PCGamesN).
Eve Everywhere was built in collaboration with Intel, allowing players to log in New Year’s Eve Online through any modern web browser, including Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Edge, and play the game as you would with a dedicated client.
This could potentially make the game more accessible on devices like Chromebooks, although players will need an Internet connection of at least 25Mbps or less, and server capacity is currently limited as well.
CCP Games says that server capacity will increase over time, along with the number of countries where Eve Everywhere service available.

If you’re an Alpha player, you’ll also need some PLEX (the game’s in-game currency). 24 hours out of Eve Everywhere costs 30 PLEX, which works out to around £1.20.
CCP says it uses cloud computing to create Eve Everywhere work and you’ll be able to do any of your usual New Year’s Eve tasks in the browser version.
Earlier this month, the CCP also announced a surprise collaboration between New Year’s Eve Online and Microsoft Excel.
