Watch EVE Online's Fanfest 2013 livestream free Wednesday through Saturday

Tyler Wilde at

EVE Online developer CCP will be broadcasting the highlights of this year's Fanfest event starting Wednesday. The stream will be free in standard def, while $20 (around £13) will get you the HD stream and a couple in-game EVE items: a Quafe commemorative t-shirt and a Pirate Faction Rookie Frigate.

The cameras will be pointed at Wednesday's live symphony, keynote talks, panels, and Saturday's "Party at the Top of the World" with DJ Z-Trip and the sweaty husks of EVE fans who've just spent an hour bashing their foreheads into invisible foes summoned by Viking metal band Skálmöld.

PC Gamer will be reporting live from the fan gathering in Reykjavik, Iceland. Though it's not listed in the stream schedule, we also hope to hear more about World of Darkness, CCP's vampire-themed MMO based on the pen and paper RPG of the same name.
