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.
Incarna represents an entirely new aspect of EVE, providing pilots with their first steps outside of the spaceships that have stalked the constellations of the EVE universe for over eight years.
The first iteration, fittingly named Incarna 1.0, brings the Captain's Quarters to each station. The Captain's Quarters are a seat of power, a hub of information and a quiet sanctuary for a pilot looking to relax a bit. A quick walthrough video can be found here. Incarna will grow over time, adding new versions of the Captain's Quarters and then establishments and beyond.
Incarna also brings a fresh beginning for a new player's experience, as we've remade it into a "New New Player Experience" and worked hard to smooth out the learning curve. It is now easier than ever to try EVE Online--an even more immersive experience is in store for those curious about jumping in the deepest MMO on the market.
