EVE Online – massive multiplayer online game

EVE Online is a massive multiplayer online game (MMOG) set in a science-fiction based, persistent world.

Players take the role of spaceship pilots seeking fame, fortune, and adventure in a huge, complex, exciting, and sometimes hostile galaxy. To accomplish any or all of this, your main tools will include a diverse array of sophisticated equipment, spaceships, and social interfaces, but you’ll also need a strong business acumen, cunning combat strategies, and often pure Machiavellian thinking.

Players of EVE Online can participate in any number of in-game professions and activities, including mining, manufacturing, trade and combat (both player versus environment and player versus player). The range of activities available to the player is facilitated by a character advancement system based upon training skills in real time, even while not logged in to the game.

EVE is not a stand-alone, single player game and can only be played online. Unlike most MMOGs that split a large player base up among small clones of the same game world (called “shards”) containing no more than 3,000 people, EVE is unique in that all of its players inhabit the same game world.

    • Massively multiplayer.
    • Epic 5,000 solar system persistent single universe.
    • Dynamic player controlled economy.
    • Exclusive offline skill advancement.
    • Unmatched versatility in game play.
