CCP’s niche strategic, space MMO, EVE Online, is part of a new deal with computer manufacturer, rock. The promotion sees gaming Notebook purchases being accompanied with a 30-day free trial of EVE Online. I guess that’s not too bad a deal, considering that EVE is fairly expensive for the kind of game that it is.

“With overlapping audiences, our partnership with rock is highly synergistic in that rock Notebooks run EVE Online with our graphics turned all the way up, enabling rock customers to experience the gameplay and art of EVE as it was meant to be,” says Magnús Bergsson, VP of sales, CCP. “Through this partnership, both CCP and rock will be able to further expand their audiences. We’re thrilled to work together.”

Honestly, there isn’t much more to say about this news story than what has been said. If you’re a fan of EVE and want some free play time, it wouldn’t be bad to capitalize on this deal if you were planning on upgrading your gaming rig. Otherwise, I’m not entirely sure that an MMO with a quarter-million subscribers is popular enough to warrant any kind of massive response from the gaming community.

Anyway, you can learn more about rock Notebooks by visiting their Official Website. For more gaming news and updates be sure to stay tuned in with Blend Games.
