EVE Online has welcomed over 24M lifetime pilots to traverse New Eden’s 7,000 star systems since the game launched in 2003. In the last year alone, more than 2M new players have joined the EVE Online’s community and are enjoying the spaceship MMO’s unparalleled freedom.
EVE Online is famous for its thriving in-game economy, political intrigue, and diverse lineup of player-run organizations. Over the game’s 18-year history, players have destroyed more than 91M total ships. EVE Online players even broke four GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS titles in 2020 and 2021 during the largest player war in the game’s history, including the biggest battle in video game history and the most costly video game battle.
Last week, CCP Games introduced a revamped New Player Experience and customizable Skill Plans that make EVE Online more accessible to newcomers.
