Exclusive Internet Spaceship Documentary Trailer: What is EVE Online?

What is EVE Online? A number of well-known players try to explain it to CEO Hilmar in this new trailer for upcoming documentary 'A Tale of Internet Spaceships'.

Every year since 2004,  Iceland's capital of Reykjavik has been besieged by internet spaceship enthusiasts. The locals, as well as much of the wider video game industry, find themselves scratching their heads as they try to figure out what it's all about.

In April 2013, once again, hundreds of EVE Online fans gathered on the far-flung North Atlantic island whilst thousands more watched from around the world. It was the momentous tenth anniversary of EVE Online's single-sharded server going online and an intrepid band of Swedish documentarians were there to ask the question: What is EVE Online?

This is the second A Tale of Internet Spaceships trailer. The first trailer, released earlier this year, focused more on the team as they experienced Iceland, Fanfest and all the craziness that goes with it. Petter Mårtensson commented,

"The last one was a private thing we did, but that we wanted to share. This is an actual teaser trailer to give a bit of a taste of it."

Enjoy the trailer above, featuring CCP Games CEO Hilmar Veigar Pétursson, spymaster turned media mogul Alexander 'The Mittani' Gianturco, intergalactic beefcake Marcus 'Roc Weiler' Dickinson, New Eden's answer to Brangelina Bagehi and Sindel Pellion, along with glimpses of many others.

Sadly no footage of then Executive Producer Jon 'CCP Unifex' Lander's stage-dive. I guess they're keeping their powder dry on that one.

The full documentary is due out "before Fanfest" next year.

Broken paramedic and coffee-drinking Englishman whose favourite dumb animal is an oxymoron. After over a decade of humping and dumping the fat and the dead, my lower spine did things normally reserved for Rubik's cubes, bringing my career as a medical clinician to an unexpectedly early end. Fortunately, my real passion is in writing and given that I'm now highly qualified in the art of sitting down, I have the time to pursue it. Having blogged about video games (well, mostly EVE Online) for years, I hope to channel my enjoyment of wordcraft and my hobby of gaming into one handy new career that doesn't involve other people's vomit.
