EVE is a massively multiplayer game, set in a world of galactic proportions. This online universe is governed by a hyper-capitalistic economy where space flight is the path to all commerce, communication, and conflict. Your mission is to establish yourself as a major competitor, trusted by your friends, feared by your enemies. To accomplish this, your principle tools -- apart from an impressive array of sophisticated equipment, customizable space ships and in-game corporations -- will be your natural business acumen, social skills, Machiavellian thinking and cunning combat strategies.
Set tens of thousands of years in the future, EVE Online is a breathtaking journey to the stars, to an immersive experience filled with adventure, riches, danger and glory. With nearly a quarter of a million subscribers worldwide inhabiting the same virtual universe, EVE features a vast player-run economy where your greatest asset is the starship, designed to accommodate your specific needs, skills and ambitions. EVE offers professions ranging from commodities trader to mercenary, industrial entrepreneur to pirate, mining engineer to battle fleet commander or any combination of these and much more. From brokering business deals to waging war, you will have access to a diverse array of sophisticated tools and interfaces to forge your own destiny in EVE.
deviantART and CCP Games are teaming up to go intergalactic. Together they’ve joined forces to form the Eve: Create A Starship Contest, for EVE Online.
The contest challenges deviantART’s online community of millions to create artwork depicting a starship vision of their own. The EVE Online creative team will personally select the winner who will see his or her creation turned into an in-game asset and have bragging rights.
“When working with brands to design promotions that engage with the community we make sure it’s a company and product the deviantART community will be excited to create for,” said Heather Wetzler, deviantART's Vice President of Advertising Sales. “The EVE: Create A Starship Contest is a perfect example as it speaks directly to the part of our community made up of gaming enthusiasts and top-talent video game designers. This contest is a perfect blend of their talents and interests and we can’t wait to see what our members come up with.”
The contest runs through October 13, 2010. For rules, and more information about the EVE: Create A Starship Contest, visit: the official contest website.
