This month, EVE Online publisher CCP announced some major changes to the way that the spacefaring MMO’s currency systems work. In a game where a spaceship can have a real-world value of over $2,000, that’s naturally caused some high-level players to freak out a little, and not without reason. Here’s a breakdown of…
Today’s a big day for the ever-churning vat of intergalactic intrigue that is EVE Online. It just went free-to-play, which means a big influx of players to disrupt the universe’s precarious balance of power. I spoke with the game’s executive producer, Andie Nordgren, about how corporations are already using that to…
After more than a decade spent slowly building a tight-knit community of paying customers, science fiction MMO EVE Online is ready to open the free-to-play floodgates. With the introduction of Clone States in November’s big update, everybody can play EVE Online for free.
You know those enormous space stations you can build in EVE Online now? PC Gamer has a cool story about the quest to build the first one packing a superweapon. A bootleg Death Star, if you will.
EVE Online’s political machinations have always been far more interesting than the game itself. And so it is with this RPS article on the gambling kingpins who are quietly taking over the space MMO.
The largest war in EVE Online history is brewing, and you don’t need to understand what’s going on to appreciate the gorgeous spectacle.
Until very recently, EVE Online’s ship browser was known as the Interbus Ship Identification System—or ISIS, for short. Wuh-oh.
EVE: Valkyrie is still looking fun, but...boy, there’s a LOT going on here, visually. I hope it’s easy to keep track of once you’re actually playing it!
Erling Sævarsson is a freelance artist with over 15 years experience across games, advertising and film. He most recently spent six years working at CCP, on the ill-fated World of Darkness MMO, a game we will never get to play, but whose art we can at least appreciate.
Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines was a very interesting game that, for all its many problems (it's kinda broken), has a core of very loyal fans. Because the original game is a mess, some of those fans wanted to remake the game and clean it up. And they would have got away with it too, if it wasn't for games…
One of my biggest gaming regrets is that I've never taken the time to really dig deep into EVE Online. This latest trailer, featuring the voices of actual players, is a monument to what everyone else is missing.
Georg Hilmarsson is a senior concept artist at CCP, the developers of EVE Online. So the art you're about to see features, spoilers, a lot of spaceships from EVE Online.
EVE Online is a mad melting pot of politics and $300,000 space ship battles, so what happens when it spills over into real life? RPS chronicled the insanity of EVE Fanfest in Iceland, which included a near-fight between the writer and EVE's most important player. It's incredible, passion-fueled stuff. Read here.
EVE Online is at least in part a game about space pirates. But it's also a massive, teeming online ecosystem that often blurs the line between virtual and real-life experiences. So when you mess with EVE, it's fair to say that you can expect to be met with swift and brutal justice both online and off.
In nine years of covering video games and the people who play them, I have seen some egregious displays of machismo, but it’s never gotten to the stage where men have literally ripped their shirts off and wrestled each other to the ground. On Friday, though, I witnessed game developers from EVE Online studio CCP fight…
Permaband is a band made up of members of EVE Online's development team. This clip for a song of theirs is a lot better than you're probably expecting.
It takes balls to announce a new space shooter MMO in the same year as Bungie’s Destiny is due to appear, but if there’s one thing that EVE Online developer CCP has never been short on, it’s ambition.
Fun, beautiful and stunningly immersive, EVE Valkyrie could be virtual reality’s Wii Sports moment.
We didn't get to see much of CCP's World of Darkness vampire MMO before it was officially canceled earlier this month. Now that early testers are no longer worried about breaking embargo, we're still not seeing much. Damn these are some dark screenshots.
Earlier this year, CCP Games announced that it would be building a monument to the players of EVE Online, to celebrate ten years since the release of the game. Well, today it's finally done.
