Eurogamer writes: "There aren't many MMO expansions that change a game wholesale when it's over five years old. There aren't many that introduce entire new methods of interaction, environment types, mini-games and meta-games, graphics and more. There certainly aren't many that offer all that as a free update to subscribers. That's what Walking In Stations, the update that will bring interiors and avatars to EVE Online for the first time, proposes to do.
It's a no-brainer, you'd think. Senior producer Torfi Frans Olafsson admits that players were asking if they'd be able to walk around and socialise inside space stations before the famously complex science-fiction MMO was even released; it's simple, natural wish-fulfilment, a limb the game has always been missing."
