An Introduction To The EVE Online Game

Mar 14, 2008
As several awards and more than 220,000 active accounts, it is easily seen that the EVE Online game is one massive multiuser online roleplaying game that you want to get into! This game, created by the Icelandic company CCP, has been active and popular for the past five years, and continues to grow at an impressive rate. You'll find that with a little bit of knowledge about this game and brief idea of the game play, you'll be ready to get started and see what this fascinating game world has to offer.

The general premise of the EVE Online game is one where the Earth as we know it has been depleted of usable resources, and due to this, people were leaving the planet to colonize space. In the EVE Online game, people spread throughout the Milky Way and through out the galaxy, until resources were once again contested and wars broke out. The solution to this problem was a natural wormhole, through which another galaxy could be found. The EVE Gate, an artificial wormhole was constructed to link the galaxies when it was discovered that the natural wormhole was unstable.

When the original wormhole collapsed, however, it took the EVE Gate with it, severing the galaxies and dooming millions of colonies that were unprepared to do without the resources that had come through the wormhole to death. This created a long Dark Age from which only five colonies managed to emerge as empires, of which four are available to player characters. In the EVE Online game, you choose one of these four empires to originate from, and it will inform your choice of ships and resources at the beginning.

The first and most advanced race that can be played are the Amarr, who were the first of the colonies to rediscover space travel. They were on a crusade to spread their thoughts and ideals to the rest of the galaxy and in this, they were aided by the Minmatar, who were more primitive and not so advanced when it came to interstellar travel. After a confrontation with the Gallente and the Jove (the later being the non-playable race), the entire Imperial Navy of Amarr was destroyed. The Gallante were at war for almost a century with the Caldari empire, and tensions between them continue to this day.

This is the general layout for the world of the EVE Online game and into this world, you create a character who can become a miner, a trader, a messenger or even a pirate. These are only some of the options, and you'll find that there are many different things that you can do to make your gameplay enjoyable. There are many different worlds to explore, and this is just the tip of the iceberg.
