Relaunching the EVE Store

By CCP t0rfifrans

As some of you may have noticed, the EVE store has been as closed as the welded-shut Incarna door for quite a while, despite the metaphorical sound of banging and clawing at the gates by people wanting to some deep meaningful retail therapy. We are happy to announce that not only are we re-opening the EVE Store, but we are rebooting it with a whole new lineup of goods in conjunction with an excellent partner in the space.

Introducing the EVE Timeline

By CCP Zulu
| Comments

Ten years of political intrigue, heroic piloting, great wars, friendships, betrayals and various other shenanigans make for some of the most compelling stories and events in gaming (or so we are frequently told).

By CCP Ytterbium
| Comments

At CCP Game Design, we are proud to take great care of our new recruits through a very well-established training program. It involves three months solitary basement confinement, intense brainwashing electroshock techniques, and accelerated body-building sessions complemented by clever use of relevant motivational soundtracks. While CCP Fozzie handled the process well, he sometimes cannot contain his excitement, which can create problems (that’s where the straitjacket comes in).

Can you help us find the True Stories of The First Decade?

By CCP t0rfifrans
| Comments

EVE Online's decade of history is unique. It has its heroes, scoundrels, heists and intrigue. But unlike most other games, the most compelling stories were not written by developers and acted out by NPCs.
