What is EVE Online?
EVE Online is a massively multiplayer online game set 23,000 years in the future. As an elite spaceship pilot, you will explore, build, and dominate across a universe of over 7,000 star systems. Sandbox gameplay and advanced skill-based progression provide you with a truly unique experience as you rise to power among the stars.
The possibilities are endless in EVE Online:
take sides in factional warfare. Join an alliance and wage epic battles for sovereignty over star systems. Discover wormholes leading to unknown regions of space. Uncover pirate outposts and lucrative resources hidden in the far reaches of the cosmos.
Pulse-pounding combat Battle with hundreds of players as part of a massive fleet, fight with a tight-knit group, or roam the stars as a deadly solo pirate. Battle-ready players and NPCs are waiting through the next jump gate.
Cutting-edge graphics Graphics and audio are an important part of the virtual world experience. CCP is always updating sound and visuals to maintain the most modern, immersive sci-fi world.
One server, one universe
The EVE Online community plays together on a single server. The results of your actions resonate across the entire galaxy. Forge a reputation that matters.
Everything from the smallest ship modules to massive Titan starships are crafted, sold, and traded by players in a dynamic interconnected economy.
Passive skill gain
Your character trains skills in the background as you play. Queue skills and go about your favorite activities as your character advances, even when you are offline.
New content is added to EVE Online on a near-monthly basis. New ships, updated graphics and improved systems are never more than a few weeks away.
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 community in EVE Online is massive, active, and passionate. Players organize by the hundreds for in-game battles and events. On the web, they create and operate countless blogs, fansites and indispensable utilities. In real life, they gather year-round at events around 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."
"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
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 who to band together with for the epic battles dominion and sovereignty.
