Eve Online is a video game by CCP Games. It is a player-driven, persistent-world MMORPG set in a science fiction space setting. Characters pilot customizable ships through a galaxy of over 7,500 star systems. Most star systems are connected to one or more other star systems by means of stargates. The star systems can contain moons, planets, stations, wormholes, asteroid belts and complexes.

Eve Online was released in North America and Europe in May 2003. It was published from May to December 2003 by Simon & Schuster Interactive, after which CCP purchased the rights and began to self-publish via a digital distribution scheme. On January 22, 2008, it was announced that Eve Online would be distributed via Steam. On March 10, 2009, the game was again made available in boxed form in stores, released by Atari. The current version of Eve Online is Retribution, released December 4, 2012. In February 2013, EVE Online reached over 500,000 subscribers.

“The inhabitants of the notorious and beloved Eve Universe have ten years’ worth of dramatic stories to tell,” said CCP chief executive officer Hilmar Veigar Petursson. “Our close collaboration with Baltasar and his creative team gives me confidence that we will capture Eve’s essence, inspiring millions of TV viewers with visions of humanity’s future.”

“It’s going to take everything we’ve got to capture the amazing visuals and rich history of the Eve Universe in a single volume,” said Dark Horse editor Dave Marshall. “As we fill it with material from Eve Online’s stellar space combat to the ‘boots on the ground’ action of Dust 514’s planetary conflicts, Eve: Source is shaping up to be one of the most stunning books we’ve ever published.”
