EVE Online is a complicated game full of politics, subterfuge, and grand-scale wars. Factions rise and fall, corporations are overthrown, and you don’t have to play the game to know that a lot of what’s going on in it is really cool.
Here are some excellent comparisons, by tonymyre311, of all the ship models (and other objects) from EVE Online, dropped onto Google Earth landscapes and edited so they look like they’re part of the map.
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!
I don't play the game, so I had no idea this even existed, but hey, turns out that space MMO EVE Online has its own official TV news show! And it's pretty good!
EVE Online, a sci-fi MMO that's full of scheming players, is famous for its many ridiculous stories of dedication, betrayal and intrigue. And the story of how some players became obsessed with someone who had one of the most expensive ships in the game feels emblematic of what the game can turn into for the most…
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…
The real, physical monument to EVE Online players hasn't even been open for a week, but already it's been vandalised.
Meet Andrew Groen. He's a veteran freelance reporter who's written for the likes of Wired and Ars Technica, and now he's got a fascinating new project: writing a book about the increasingly insane history of the multiplayer game Eve Online.
Ten of the guys who work on EVE Online, along with some "special guests", are going to fight Iceland's Gunnar "Gunni" Nelson next month. Gunnar is a UFC fighter with twelve wins (and two blackbelts) to his name. They are all going to die.
One giant, horrifically expensive space ship destroying another, while its crew erupts in gleeful laughter. Yep, that sure looks like EVE Online. Starting today, you can get the first issue of a new comic-book series based on the infamous sci-fi corporate warfare MMO for free.
One week after declaring they will build an in-game memorial to the ships lost at the colossal Battle of B-R5RB, Eve Online publisher has decided to go whole hog and erect a monument, in real life, to all EVE Online players. Anyone who is an active player on March 1 will get his or her name engraved on it.
EVE Online will erect a memorial to the 21-hour, all-out space battle that spanned Monday and Tuesday, commemorating the loss of 75 Titans—the largest ship in the spacefaring MMO. The total damage done may translate to more than $300,000 in real money, but it is the loss of the Titans that defines the Battle of B-R5RB.
One week after this monstrous galactic throwdown in EVE Online, the sci-fi MMO is the scene of another humongous space battle—and it's all because of a missed bill payment.
What you see in that image is a Doomsday weapon, a superlaser that can only be fired from a Titan, the largest and most expensive ship in EVE Online. More than 50 of them were present yesterday for an enormous, quintessentially EVE capital ship throwdown between the two biggest coalitions in the spacefaring MMO.
Does this count as government aid? Because EVE Online has an actual ruling body that meets in Iceland IRL. The game's publisher is asking players to donate Pilot License Extensions (PLEX) to fund relief to the Phillippines as it recovers from Typhoon Haiyan, and will match $15 to each donation, up to $75,000.
This isn't even a trailer for a game. It's a pitch to sell some EVE Online merch. And while it doesn't make me want to part with my cash, it does make me want to get everyone else out of this house for a minute so I can run around with some Transformers going "pew pew pew pew pew".
EVE Online is known for being a video game universe where players come first. Their alliances, decisions and protests change the shape of the fictional galaxy and the huge multiplayer game it lives in. And starting next year, the player-driven sagas of CCP’s hit MMO will be providing the fuel for a new comic-book…
