If you play EVE Online with anyone from China, you may have noticed them becoming scarce recently. That’s because their ability to connect to the game’s main server in their native language has been removed. Now, granted, they were never supposed to be doing this at all; playing EVE on the worldwide server in Chinese…
For years now, gaming companies like Riot, Blizzard, and Twitch have been fighting online abuse and harassment in their own ways, to mixed results. Now they’re trying something different: Working together.
Physicist Stephen Hawking passed away yesterday at the age of 76, leaving behind a legacy of illuminating observations about the cosmos. Well-wishers in EVE Online are honoring his life by dropping dozens of interstellar beacons to commemorate one of history’s greatest minds.
Every fleet in EVE Online is only as good as the players leading it. But unlike real-life generals, the Fleet Commanders in EVE can’t sit safely on the sidelines giving orders; they’ve got to sit right in the middle of battle like everyone else. As you might imagine, this makes them primary targets. But a new ship…
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…
CCP has announced it’s shutting down Dust 514, its FPS set in the EVE Online universe, on May 30. The company is currently developing a follow-up, but unlike Dust 514, it’ll be PC-only.

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!
