CCP Games has informed us that the EVE Fanfest 2013 event to celebrate all things related to its popular space MMO EVE Online sold out last week. The event held once a year in Reykjavik, Iceland will see about 1,400 attendees – about 50 percent more than last year's event. The Fanfest offers attendees three days of EVE Online and CCP-related activities that include panels, local Icelandic excursions, presentations from the game's developers, PvP tournaments, a developer-lead pub crawl, game reveals, and the general joys of camaraderie.
This year's theme is "EVE: The Second Decade," as the game inches towards ten years in operation. In addition to all the other activities planned for the event, several unique events will take place including the Icelandic Symphony Orchestra performing music from EVE Online, a new “Make EVE Real” speaker track that uses real-world science in the context of the game's universe, and a performance by Gunnar 'Gunni' Nelson, the popular MMA submission fighter fresh off a UFC bout in London.
