EVE Online is a space simulation MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-playing Game) that was first released in 2003. The game is set over 21,000 years in the future. Users can play against other players or versus the environment. There are different in-game professions that players can choose from including mining, combat, trading, and many more. At the start of the game, players must choose a character from the available ones, or create a new one. Players can create up to three characters in one account.
Players advance through the game by improving the skills of the character. This happens in real-time so training continues even if the player is not logged-in to the game. There are also other ways to improve skills, such as purchasing skill books from merchants, or purchasing blueprints to manufacture objects. In Eve Online, there are 7,000 star systems to explore. Some of these are controlled by other players, while others are controlled by NPCs (Non-player character). The World of Eve is separated into 4 powers: Amarr Empire, Caldari State, Minmatar Republic, and the Gallente Federation.
Other features of the game are the following:
• Sixteen expansions (free for subscribers)
• Several interaction options with other players
• Player-driven open economy
