EVE Online has once again been plunged into a major battle—possibly its biggest one ever, depending on how it all goes. At around 3 PM Eastern today, Keepstar-class Citadel (the single largest object that can be owned by a player in EVE) held by the Pandemic Horde alliance has come under attack, and is poised for…
When the Arms Race expansion for EVE Online drops tomorrow, players using the free-to-play option will be able to do a lot more in the game.
Layoffs at EVE Online publisher CCP Games weren’t supposed to affect players, but they have led to the cancellation of a popular fan tournament.
In 2013, Eve Online developer CCP Games introduced Eve: Valkyrie, one of the current crop of virtual reality hardware’s flagship titles. Today the company announced it is halting VR development, closing, selling and streamlining studios, letting go of “around 100" employees in the process.
Soon, EVE Online’s free-to-play players will be allowed to expand their spaceship repertoires. CCP Games is more than quadrupling the amount of ships that F2P players are able to fly, still for the low, low price of free.
EVE Online is a game of risk versus reward, a game where players can take chances with their resources. Over the past weekend, the in-game organization know as “The Imperium” staged an annual event called “Burn Jita.” During this event, the safest areas of the game are invaded by renegade players, who turn everything…

Members of the press at E3 2013 and fans at this year's CCP Fanfest wouldn't shut up about how cool the Oculus Rift-powered EVE VR demo was, so CCP is making EVE: Valkyrie, a multiplayer space dogfighting game set in the EVE universe. I hope you're all happy.
It's no secret that you can get your virtual self killed—or at least space-shipwrecked—pretty easily in EVE Online. It's a game of shifting alliances, of diplomacy and economics and war. A player flying around solo, in a small ship, is likely to find himself easy prey.
Grief, in an online community, can be a shockingly intimate thing. People who have known each other as a collection of digital avatars and assumed names gather together to mourn the genuinely painful loss of one of their own. The best and most generous parts of a community's nature often show when tragedy strikes it.
Dust 514 is an upcoming free-to-play first-person-shooter on the PlayStation 3 that will connect to the massively-multiplayer online game Eve Online. This much we've known for several months, but pardon me for still having trouble processing how it's going to work.
The dynamic duo of Sveinn Jóhannesson Kjarval and Hinrik Haraldsson return with "Keep Clickin", the follow-up to CCP Games in-house band's 2009 hit "Harden the Fuck Up." If only EVE Online were this exciting!
Chessboxing is an activity that combines the physical demands of boxing with the mental discipline of chess. Competitors alternate between rounds of chess and rounds of boxing, kicking things off with a four-minute round of chess and alternating with fisticuffs until 11 rounds have passed, or one competitor jams a…

Pétursson went on to say that while EVE inhabitants are "different people," focused on operating spacecraft. a character in DUST "would rather run around, blow shit up. That…
