EVE Online is Going Free to Play!
On November 15th, EVE Online is going free-to-play. The MMO's developer CCP Games is in the final stages of preparing the game for its F2P rebirth, and to get us all ready they have released a trailer to entice new players into the Galaxy of New Eden.

Although the trailer doesn't show or tell you much about what you would expect in your day to day life as a Capsuleer, it does manage to capture the games atmosphere.
With the introduction of the free to play option, it will split the player base into two groups -- Alpha Clones and Omega Clones. Omega Clones are subscribed players, and they'll have access to everything the game has to offer. The Alpha Clones will have access to a small number of ships and skills, and in the game they will be able to compete with the paying players. It is also possible for an Alpha Clone player to acquire enough Plex (EVE's in game currency) to buy a subscription without real money.
If you've ever wanted to play this game without having to pay for it, then on the 15th of November you'll have your chance.
