EVE Online is an MMO game set in a world of galactic proportions, governed by a hyper-capitalistic economy where space flight is the path to all commerce, communication, and conflict.

EVE is a community-driven massively multiplayer online (MMO) 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.

CCP Games announced that EVE Fanfest will take place in Reykjavík, Iceland on September 21 - 23, 2023.

Since 2004, EVE Fanfest has been the ultimate destination for EVE Online players to come together and share their passion for the game. EVE Fanfest 2023 takes it to the next level with a celebration of the game’s 20th anniversary and a first look at what the future holds with keynotes, player and developer presentations, panels, and more.

“Fanfest 2023 will be the biggest celebration of EVE yet. EVE will live forever, but will only turn twenty once,” said CCP Creative Director Bergur Finnbogason. “We’re giving the community an extraordinary experience, reflecting on what this universe has given us, and showing our commitment to making EVE live on forever. EVE is entering its third decade strong and we have no plans of slowing down. The game's future has never been brighter with the recent Uprising expansion and continued EVE Evolved updates. Our community continues to inspire us and we couldn’t be more grateful for their efforts over the last twenty years.”

Join CCP and fellow pilots in the land of fire and ice as EVE Online celebrates twenty years on its journey into forever. Early-bird tickets are available here starting at $159 USD until sold out. Afterward, standard tickets will be available for $295 USD.

EVE Fanfest 2023 celebrations include:

  • Presentations, panels, and immersive experiences featuring EVE developers and players.
  • Fleet Up with alliances or corporations.
  • Meet and greet EVE player luminaries and developers through a star-gazing Aurora Borealis excursion, nature and city tours, and the charity dinner.
  • Celebrations with space friends and enemies.
  • The epic pub crawl and the legendary Party at the Top of the World.
  • …and more!

The full schedule of events will be shared in the coming months.

Commemorating Fanfest’s return to Reykjavik in 2022, CCP Games partnered with The Escapist to give fans an inside look at putting together EVE Online’s most significant celebration and its impact on the community. Filmed throughout EVE Fanfest 2022, the ‘EVE Fanfest Documentary’ pulls back the curtain on EVE Fanfest and how players use the event to forge alliances or reconnect with fellow pilots from around the globe.
