The Spaceships

There are over 200 ships in EVE Online, ranging from small, agile frigates to mighty Titans. Each ship is designed to excel in a particular role, which players can further specialize with modules and equipment that best fit their playstyle and objectives.

The Players

The community in EVE Online is massive, active, and passionate. In-game, players organize by the hundreds for battles and events. On the web, they create and operate countless blogs, fansites and indispensable utilities. In real life, they gather year round at meet-ups and events across the globe to celebrate the incredible community and game they are a part of.

"It’s a sandbox, many times I’m sure your castle will either collapse (because you suck at engineering) or get stomped to the ground by others, but just as well it might become something really cool and appreciated by many."

- Chribba

"Oh sure, spaceships are involved. But EVE Online is a game about people: the relationships between people, why this person likes you and that person dislikes you, why this person would go to the ends of the earth to protect your dreams and that person would do so to crush them."

- Ripard Teg

"The things that are happening in EVE now have historical context from things that happened five years ago. And none of this was developed or generated by CCP."

- Xander Phoena

The Universe

An extensive set of gates connect the thousands of star systems that players inhabit in New Eden. Miners and Industrialists will find moons, planets and asteroid belts rich with resources.

Explorers will discover there is far more to the universe than meets the eye, including wormholes filled with hidden treasures.

Combat pilots will learn quickly where to go to pick a fight, where the lone pirates prowl, and with whom to band together in epic battles for dominion and sovereignty.
